This pub used to be run by Vera, the mum of Charlie Landsborough the country and western singer. A great alehouse with a piano in the back room.

Billed himself as the landlady's son on a radio interview over here, he was appearing at Skeggy. He told some good dits about the Pacific too. I may have misheard him but don't think so. It was so long ago I need some reminders of exactly what was what and who was who, so always grateful for a heads up. Cheers Para

Charlie's mum was "Aggie" and he had ten siblings.

It gets more intriguing. Charlie comes across well in his interviews but never been to see him sing since the Pacific about 30 odd years ago. He might have just been talking about Vera as the landlady.

I met one of the Elliot brothers in Singapore of all places in about 1978, when we were both working out there.

No, it was actually in the bogs at 392 bar when it was at # 392 Orchard Road & Phil said "where are you from mate" & I replied "not far from you by the sound of it" I think Phil was with McDermott then. Shame about Bugis Street closing, that was the start of the sterilisation of Singers!!

Ah, Singers. Wot a run ashore! Don't ask paranoidballoon about falling down a mongoose drain though. Bugis St isn't actually closed, a mate of mine was down there last year, but it is certainly sanitised, not like it used to be with the Brit squaddies and matelots down there giving it rooty-toot. Like they say, "never go back it aint the same."
