Post 23 - Maureen Elkner - Rak Off Normie / Norman

Maureen Elkner is best known as a comedy act, with the success of her novelty hit “Rak Off Normie” in 1975 which was a sequel to Bob Hudson's “Newcastle Song”. However, her first two releases “Dynamite” and “Wild Thing” were both rock songs recorded on the Infinity label. Maureen appeared in the stage productions Rocky Horror Show and Oh Calcutta (which was closed down by the police half-way through the second performance). In ‘75 she signed to M7 Records (which was also Bob Hudson's label). She recorded five singles and two albums. Her 2nd album “Love Tracks” (1977) featured a young Tommy Emmanuel on guitar. "Rak Off Normie" b/w "Norman" (MS 111), and is here for you to download.
