As imagined from my latest novel, ‘Peckersley’s Bird Café’.

In the story, Norman Peckersley is a now retired farm labourer. But in 1972, he and his mates formed a band known as Norman & The Dung Diggers, scoring a Number Two in the charts hit.

Here is what the song sounded like, as recreated over 50 years later! Now who says that subtlety is everything? (a one minute video)


We’re the dung digger divvies and we’re proud to admit / That we spend all day just shovelling shit / To the left jerk your thumb / To the right shake your bum / Turn around, clap clap / Keep shovelling crap.
