  1. There's coincidence -- I also hit on this site yesterday, after Googling "McCloskey's Apocalypse", who I remember from my years as a student in Sheffield, 1967-70. Mick Wilson also used to appear solo at folk clubs and the like, singing his own material to a guitar accompaniment. His style, both as songwriter and performer, was rather acerbic. I remember him using the following lines in a talking blues to close his act.. "It's time for me to urinate and speak in the Abortion Bill debate and hang a sign upon my gate that says... so long... that's all folks." Also another line which perhaps shouldn't now be quoted out of context, especially as it's suggested that he has gone into academic life -- there's a Mick Wilson listed by Salford University as Head of Composition in the School Of Media, Music and Performance.
