The Scaffold

The Scaffold are a comedy, poetry and music trio from Liverpool, England, consisting of musical performer Mike McCartney, the brother of Paul McCartney), poet Roger McGough and comic entertainer John Gorman.

They are perhaps best remembered for their successful singles "Thank U Very Much" (1967) and the UK number 1 "Lily the Pink" (1968). Since initially disbanding in 1977, the group have occasionally re-formed for performances and projects.
