Adge Cutler & The Wurzels
Date: 23 August 1968
- Up The Clump (Adge Cutler)
- Aloha, Severn Beach (Adge Cutler)
Direction: Henry Davis
The Clump showed a change in direction regarding
the choice of what songs to release as a single. Adge's
rock 'n' roll number, complete with Tommy Banner's Jerry
Lee Lewis-style piano playing and a drummer - a novelty
for The Wurzels in those days before they had a regular
drummer - showcased a different side of the Wurzels;
but again, failed to chart.
Severn Beach reappeared on the 1969 Carry On
Cutler! album, and while the two versions are not
identical, they're very similar and could have been
recorded at the same session. The track is dated 1968
on the album so this would seem likely.
Davis is named as the musical director on the single,
rather than Bob Barratt who was named as producer on
all Adge's previous singles.
