About this deal

I once met a bloke who worked with the Scaffold who insisted that he knew what the Aintree Iron was, however he was also warned (in fact threatened) that he must never disclose. Thank U Very Much" is a song by Liverpudlian comedy trio the Scaffold, released as a single in November 1967. The Scaffold’s career outlasted that of McGear’s brother’s band, their name kept in the public eye with the Liver Birds 70s TV sitcom theme and their farewell single, a gloriously lugubrious version of Dominic Behan’s Liverpool Lou (an excellent compilation of most of The Scaffold’s work is currently available, though a new collection is in the works – hopefully this one will contain their timelocked rarity, Decimal Five, a song designed to help sell decimalisation to the masses). Song lyrics don't have to refer to anything and it is possible that the phrase is just a piece of nonsense.

I remember that time because I walked into Savile Row to show them my new shiny leather jacket and they were actually filming. Growing up my Dad always told me I lived on the Aintree iron because the block it is on is shaped like an iron; it has the Black Bull pub at on point, Longmoor Lane school at another and a derelict site at the third point, I'm not sure what the third point used to be as I'm too young to remember it. I'm originally from Hull and wondered as a kid who'd nicked all the railings from the Town Centre and near Queens Dock.

Tracks which were first released from 1973 onward show the artist as Scaffold (rather than The Scaffold). The iron tracks had long since been pulled up but the walk along the raised route towards Maghull still bore that name. The phrase “Aintree Iron” means nothing to Americans, and I found that most English folk can’t even agree on what it means: it is noted on various sites that the phrase could refer to a noted English footballer, an area in Liverpool, or Brian Epstein! However on one occasion, when Scaffold were due to play (I believe it was at the Iron Door Club) the heckler turned up with several mobster friends and a riot ensued.

I mean, the jargon is all different - "British North tallies five rounders against Papua New Guinea with a key turn-about on a wide potted plant.

The yard, which in 1894 covered a site of 200 acres, had a capacity of 6,828 wagons and was used to handle all the goods traffic to and from the Liverpool docks. When I was a child I didn't really know the words so I sang phonetic Dutch-English: thank you very much for the "insiens byan".

Now, a million years later, I’m talking to the ex-Scaffold, ex-GRIMMS, ex-hairdresser McGear about the reissue of arguably his finest piece of work, 1974’s McGear. Since then he has arguably maintained the highest-profile and most sustained post-Scaffold career, still appearing regularly as a vocal performer on British radio and television, and continuing to be a highly regarded poet and author.
