My father was at school with Mike and told me years later that the 'Aintree Iron' was a betting system many of the local lads used at the Aintree track in those days. Global supplier of branded animal health products encompassing veterinary medicines, vaccines, nutritional, topicals, consumables and instruments – your chosen source for all things related to good animal health. Others were equally insistent on it being variously (a) a tree (b) Liverpool Football Club (c) Brian Epstein (d) a railway yard (e) an iron foundry (f) an open-air urinal ? Tracks which were first released from 1973 onward show the artist as Scaffold (rather than The Scaffold). I once went to a supermarket in Liverpool on business, and as I got out of the car noticed that the building next door was surrounded by a 12ft security fence topped off with barbed wire and razor ribbon.

Last night, after a whisky and a long day, the words of the song ‘Thank U very much for the Aintree Iron’ came into my head, as these things do. McGear the man is rightly proud of McGear the album and is happy to acknowledge its finest moment, namely The Man Who Found God On The Moon. There has been considerable debate as to the meaning of the place, item, person or event described in the lyric of the song "Thank U Very Much" as the Aintree Iron. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. And that’s why, when our kid launched his first Wings in London, I was having a wee and this lad comes in and says, ‘Hi, Mike.Reminds you of "What does Lucy in the sky with diamonds mean" or the words to "Whiter shade of pale"!

To get you in the mood, a few awful things about Liverpool which you should think about (even if you don't know about them) to send their team negative vibes. I said, ‘Yes, please’… We recorded Leave It at Abbey Road, sent it to New York and the Eastmans said, ‘Great, can you do an album? Mark - yeah, I like a lot of Macca's music and that of those other three blokes he was in a band with. The nursery school has stayed with me for years - I think it was one of the most depressing things I have ever seen, the pathos of someone having made the effort to try and cheer it up a bit.

It used to have a ball room, and other building that was demolished before I was born, whether they have anything to do with the song I don't know, maybe it was a smart choice of words to make the song sound good.
