Early years/Scaffold
The Scaffold were Mike McGear, John Gorman & Roger McGough they performed a mixture of comic songs, comedy sketches and the poetry of McGough, Which can be heard on their 1968 live album, they also released a number of singles on Parlophone and EMI between 1966 and 1971.

Since none of the Scaffold were musicians they used a backing band for live appearances initially they used a band called The Business who were later replaced by the remnants of Elastic Band.

Mike and I were at some of the recording sessions of the Scaffold however it is impossible for me to know which bits were used in the final product. However here is a sample of a very rare song taken from an Acetate we recorded with Mike McGear of the Scaffold the song is called Uptown and Downtown.
