Wow, Marty Wilde (Kim's dad) did a version of "Abergavenny"? The only versions I know are by Shannon (a white guy, not the Shannon who did "Let the Music Play") back in '69, and there was also a "new wave" cover by Wide Boy Awake in '83 or so.
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

Addendum: a Google search revealed that Marty Wilde also recorded under the name Shannon, at least according to one website. WTF?

Marty Wilde and Shannon are one and the same.  He was recording under a new name presumably to forge a new ID in the UK.  I have the song on the Bubblegum Classics Vol. One comp & it's fab, clearly inspired by the marching-band arrangement of the Turtles' "She'd Rather Be With Me."
“The choir of children sing their song.  They've practiced all year long.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.”
