Anyone from Yorkshire have memories of Tingalary men? I raise the question in connection with the Bill Nelson song Tingalary Man And The Scarlet Fever Kid from Stereo Star Maps. Found discussion at a forum called Secret Leeds where people shared memory fragments of older relatives in Yorkshire singing about the Tingalary Man. Google image search yielded images from the Bradford Industrial Museum and a Wikipedia entry on the barrel organ. Also found The Tingalary Bird : A Theatre Piece For Children In Three Acts By Mary Melwood along with a charming painting by G.W. Birks. "Even further back I remember Italians who played barrel organs, or tingalary, or hurdy-gurdy - each area of Bradford had their own names for these things. There were also ice-cream men who pulled a hand cart. Some even had a little monkey on their shoulder dressed in a coat and a fez." Thanks for those memories, Mr Hodgson, from a time long past. From Telegraph & Argus Along with Bill’s The Tingalary Man And The Scarlet Fever Kid, there are songs that recall similar characters like Donovan’s The Hurdy Gurdy Man and Madness’s The Last Rag And Bone Man …

In case you've not noticed, Deep Dream Decoder is available at Bandcamp, joining Buddha Head and Electricity Made Us Angels, almost completing the My Secret Studio box. Each song is a hit. Used to be that my favourites on this one were the title track along with Things To Come and It's All True but they're all corkers.

It's via Rocket 88, who published the Syd Barrett visual art book. Time for a Bill Nelson one. https://johnfoxxbook.com(https://johnfoxxbook.com)

In a Google search for Enigma Records cassette compilations that include Bill Nelson, trying to help Dreamsville member cloudyhours find a mystery tune, I found this from the Grand Lodge of British Columbia .... https://freemasonry.bcy.ca/anti-masonry/pentagram/pop/bill_nelson/index.html(https://freemasonry.bcy.ca/anti-masonry/pentagram/pop/bill_nelson/index.html) Not fair to label Bill a self-styled Rosicrucian. He was the real deal.

On the Wakefield Historical Appreciation Site on Facebook, Bill recently posted a comment below a photograph titled "Wakefield Kirkgate 1965" .... 'That was a great shopping street. The original British Home Stores was a place my mother shopped at often. They sold all sorts of stuff, even a small range of model kits. I got my first model kit from there in the 50s, a little speedboat in pale green plastic. It set me off on a great hobby and I built so many kits back then'. This immediately caused me to listen to Speedboats From Another World from Modern Moods For Mighty Atoms and The Marvelous Model Kit from Clocks & Dials. Here's the post ....
