Uncle Joe's Mint Balls
I tried to find info. about this Lancashire band but they had no web presence so maybe they broke up many years ago and this tape from the charity shop is older than I thought? It's obviously a self published affair with a cheap one colour printed sleeve and a photo tucked inside the case that a friend had taken on a Box Brownie. The style is all cloth caps and clog irons and reminds me of The Houghton Weavers, The Grumbleweeds and Mike Harding - indeed Harding wrote the title song proclaiming the delights of the Wigan made mint. Maybe the group were taken to court for using the name? Who knows.
Anyway , here's a few tracks of "Folk and comedy Lancashire style".
