1981: Seth's Pop At Stardom!

1981 - the year of the Birdie Dance and Shaddupa Your Face, also saw the release of a little known ditty performed by the one and only Stan Richards, Emmerdale Farm's Seth!

Grandad's Motto was written by Geoff Ashford and released on the Spy 80 label. It contained some very Seth-like lyrics ("See All, hear all, say nowt. Eat all, sup all, pay nowt"!).

Sorry I can't provide a little audio taster of this - but 1981 was pre-CD, this is vinyl, and I haven't had a record player in the house since the late 1990s!

Stan Richards was, of course, an experienced entertainer. Read more about Stan/Seth by clicking on one of the appropriate labels below! Click on the image above for a look at the song lyrics.
