Educational and professional background[edit]
Because secondary education was not free, his family could not afford to meet the costs of education for seven children. Thus, when he completed primary school education, he chose to compete for a scholarship in order to pursue his studies further. He won the government-awarded mechanical Engineering Apprenticeship Scholarship in 1956 and secured a seat at the prestigious Royal College School and the Technical College of Floreal. To acquire practical knowledge and experience, he was trained at the Mauritius Railways Department where he stayed up to 1963. In that same year, he was approached by the team of the Daily Express to work as a technician in the composition sector. He worked for the paper until 1979 when he was offered the post of Director of Father Laval’s Printing, a company owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Port-Louis and for which he worked until 1983. From 1983 to 1986 he was Director of the Daily Socialist, a publication which belonged to a political party. In 1975, he obtained the Diploma of Political and Social Sciences at Claver House, London.

Concept[edit]
A number of the songs had appeared sporadically on earlier albums by Johnson, dating back to Overnight in 1991, although the recordings presented on the album are all new. The songs were inspired by Johnson’s memories of living in the London borough of Hounslow, where he was a resident for around fifty years, ranging from childhood memories of watching Brentford F.C. with his father to more modern incidents. One song, “Father Christmas Down Hounslow High Street” was inspired by a Christmas parade to which he took his own children, which featured Noddy and some “camp pirates”.[1] The storyline of the album centres on Mary, from nearby Feltham, her children, and her on-off boyfriend Gary, a carpenter. Johnson based the character of Mary on a girl he had taught while working as a schoolteacher, who had a child at a young age.[1] Johnson and the band also toured in support of the album, combining the concert with a children’s songs workshop.[2]
Critical reception[edit]
Writing in The Guardian, Robin Denselow called the album “bleak but unexpectedly poignant” and “thoughtful [and] well-observed” and said it offered proof that Johnson was “an English original”.[3]
Credits[edit]
Johnson plays guitar on the album and sings, accompanied by John Forrester on bass guitar, Charlie Waygood on drums, Naomy Browton on cello, Tim Walker on brass, and Roger Watson on melodeon. Johnson’s two young sons, Hari and Arvin, provided background vocals for the track “Poundshop Christmas”.[1]

Terror Illustrated was a black-and-white magazine published by EC Comics in late 1955 and early 1956. Part of EC’s Picto-Fiction line, each magazine featured three to five stories. The format alternated blocks of text with several illustrations per page.
The first issue appeared with a cover date of November–December 1955, but the second issue was the last. A third issue existed but was not printed by EC. The Picto-Fiction magazines lost money from the start, and the line was cancelled when EC’s distributor went bankrupt.
Terror Illustrated was edited by Al Feldstein. As with EC’s comics, Feldstein was the most prolific writer of the title, and generally wrote up to three stories per issue. In addition to the stories credited to him, Feldstein also wrote under the pseudonyms Maxwell Williams and Alfred E. Neuman. Feldstein included multiple retellings of previous stories, a move suggested by publisher William Gaines. This included “The Basket” and “The Gorilla’s Paw” in the first issue and “Horror in the Freak Tent” and “Reflection of Death” in #2. Other contributing writers included Jack Oleck (who had worked as a writer on EC’s earlier publications) and John Larner.[1]
Featured illustrators included Reed Crandall, Joe Orlando, George Evans, Graham Ingels, Johnny Craig, Charles Sultan and Jack Davis.
In 2006 Terror Illustrated was reprinted along with the other Picto-Fiction magazines by publisher Russ Cochran (with Gemstone Publishing) in hardbound volumes as the final part of his Complete EC Library. The reprint volume included the previously unpublished third issue of Terror Illustrated.

The Greenland Guide and Scout Association (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Nunaanni Spejderit Kattuffiat, Danish: Grønlands Spejderkorps) is the youngest of the Danish Scout associations, founded on February 2, 1973. Previously Greenlandic boys had belonged to one of the Danish Scout associations and girls belonged to one of the corresponding Danish Guide associations. Scouting in Greenland started in 1943, and Guiding began in 1950. Greenland Guide and Scout Association, however, is a coeducational organization, and has been recognized as an associate member of the Fællesrådet for Danmarks Drengespejdere since 1976 and of the Pigespejdernes Fællesråd Danmark since 1981. Initial grants from the Parliament of Greenland helped the fledgling organization. Today, the association has about 500 members.

The association focuses upon local conditions, skills and handicrafts, sea and mountaineering activities and subzero camping, as well as nature conservation, of particular importance on the Arctic island. The limited means of public transport render a camp for all members impracticable, so camps are instead arranged at district level. The membership badge of the association incorporates elements of the coat of arms of Greenland.

“Jackie’s Racing” is a song by Scottish rock band Whiteout, released in 1995 (see 1995 in music). It was the band’s fourth single, released shortly before their first album, Bite It, on which the song is featured also. The B-sides “Cousin Jane” and “So Confused” reappeared on the Japanese EP Young Tribe Rule later the same year. Music journalist M.C. Strong writes that “Jackie’s Racing” was the band’s “… most successful release, displaying a healthy affection for 60’s West Coast pop a la Lovin’ Spoonful and The Mamas & the Papas.”[1] Strong also mentions that the B-Side “So Confused” “… [brings] to mind the harmonies of American Beauty-era Grateful Dead.”[1]
