Tripe Girls To Reform?
Popular 40s singing trio The Tripe Girls are to reform. It's a "done deal", according to the Wigan Daily Mail, with some or all of the band believed to have signed up for four shows including next year's Beefstock music festival as well as care homes throughout the north west..
The band – Florrie (Blonde Tripe), Mabel B (Spotty Tripe) and Mabel C (Baby Tripe) are all in their eighties or nineties and were thought to have been happily retired since 1962.
They are best remembered as figureheads of the Tripe Power movement, hits such as Tripe Up Your World and A Taste Of Honeycomb, the feature film Tripe World and a range of merchandise including tripe-scented deodorant.
Baby Tripe is 86.
