Chip Pan Fire  by Jackie Balfour
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Jackie Leven made his first forays into the music business in the late 1960s under the pseudonym "John St Field" and recorded the album ‘Control’ in 1971. He formed the punk band Doll by Doll in 1978, releasing four albums.

In 1983 Leven embarked on his solo career. However following a vicious and unprovoked attack in the street during the recording of his first solo album in 1984, he was left unable to speak for nearly two years – the after-effects of near strangulation. During that time he slid into heroin addiction. Despite that he, with ex-Sex Pistol Glen Matlock, released a single “Big Tears” which was a Melody Maker single of the week in 1988.

In 1994 Leven released ‘The Mystery Of Love Is Greater Than The Mystery Of Death’, which earned critical praise. Since then he has been extremely prolific, releasing twelve official solo albums and a number of fanclub only releases.

This release, under the psyeudonym Jackie Baflour, is a spoken word CD of gently humorous stories about Leven’s first job, narrated to a guffawing audience. Best-selling author Ian Rankin also makes a guest appearance.
