Despite insisting now that he has no musical or melodic ability, McGear then released his first solo album proper, the excellent Woman (1972), which displays his unique combination of reflective yet tough songwriting, most notably on the title track and the marvellously-titled Bored As Butterscotch. The tapes also contained other McGear songs like Nothing, A-Z and Girls On The Avenue (“A Pete Wingfield song and it’s me singing! They shared the concert with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, OMD and the Liverpool Chinese Children's Pagoda Orchestra. Working almost exclusively as a trio under the name the Scaffold from 1964, Gorman, McGear and McGough performed a mixture of comic songs, comedy sketches and the poetry of McGough (as evidenced on their 1968 live album), and they released a number of singles and albums on Parlophone and EMI between 1966 and 1971, with several more on Island, Warner Bros.

He would travel from his home in Aintree to Liverpool city centre on a Friday and Saturday night, dressed in a shabby old military overcoat and berret, with his war medals on. In the early 60's many people in Aintree had no money for the electricity metre until the weekly pay packet came home so the young lads took their trousers to Angela,"the Aintree Iron" to get them pressed for a Friday night.

Richard - Mike McGear went through some long drawn out court case recently where a waitress accused him of making inappropriate advances on her. McGear began recording outside The Scaffold while still in the group, first collaborating with Roger McGough on the 1968 album, McGough And McGear, a strong collection of poetry and arch songs like the still-sharp Ex Art Student.If you should visit Aintree racecourse there is a letter from the war department, thanking Mrs Topham for the iron railings which went to help with the war. The trio put on a concert to raise funds for the Nordic Church and Cultural Centre in Liverpool in October 2018.
