Dobba - Guitar
Norbert - Vocals
For "The Ballad Of Sara and Goffy" the Fingolstones musical influences were the Blues of the deep south (the deep south of Chesterfield that is ie Clay Cross, North Wingfield etc).
Dobbas bluesy guitar and Norberts heartfelt pained vocals effortlessly portray the doomed love story that was Sara and Goffy.
Sara Vaughan expressed her interest in the young boy Gofton and made it clear that she would have him and try and break through the barriers he put up. She thought he was shy and that this was endearing, he thought she was fat and scary. She wasn't really fat at all but she was quite scary. Norbert had experienced the intensity of a Sara Vaughan kiss at Carmelina Tozzis Halloween party. An experience that left him emotionally scarred for life, though strangely excited as well. Goffy had heard the tales and fought to keep her away, and in this he succeeded. However this wouldn't have made for a very good song so using a bit or artistic licence the Fingolstones amended the tale slightly. In their version he succumbed to her charms and met a grisly fate.
The Fingolstones loved the song but were absolutely terrified that Sara would hear it and kill them. However unable to resist the release of their new track it was indeed played to a receptive AHC audience. There were mixed views on the song. Goffy hated it and Sara vowed revenge. The rest of the AHC liked it though.
Sara got her revenge by writing her own scathing attack on Dobba and Norbert criticising everything about them, from their music to their schmutter. This revenge backfired when the lads realised that the revenge song was actually quite good. An acapella version was recorded although never released as a single or album track. It is included in this retrospective as a bonus track.
At one time Goffy was the youngest Arch Bishop of St Augustines, however ......
His ecclesiastical career was brought to a sudden end when this shocking photo was published in the News of the World.
