Who's Who

Robby Norman - Top

Our Musical Director-and the only member of the group with any kind of musical talent. Being a professional musician he is thus able to play a huge range of different instruments including kazoo, triangle, bass drum, referees whistle, sleigh bells and even hand clapping. Naturally proud of his Cornish/German lineage, he sports his very own bumper sticker- 'Cornishmen Do It Straight Avay und Perfektly'. Oggymen practices are usually spent with half our number singing whilst the other half take turns in tunnel excavation.  

Andy Rowe - Top

Andy descends from a famous line of humorous Penwithians (you may have seen his uncle on TV before-the clue is in the surname). His dry sense of humour and wit are legendary as well as his love of arm wrestling and dry stone walling. Andy sings top tenor with 'The Fuhrer’ and he hits notes only grieving women and small rodents can pitch.  He is, however, not nearly as funny as Jethro.

Jezza Marks - Middle

Jez is a keen fisherman having recently purchased the 'GnomeMaster1000 Offshore' (waterline length 0.005m) Upturned Acorn Cup complete with Tadpole outboard motor propulsion system.  Jerry used to get free lifts to gigs with the other members by being carefully wrapped in a handkerchief and gently placed into  someone's pocket but has recently ascended to the rarified air of Mawnan Smith.  As such he is now normally to be seen in a glass showcase next door to the stuffed salmon in the Red Lion. 

Jon Davies - Middle

Keen on 'Iron Man' competitions and with Welsh roots,  Jon is keen on fathering a whole new race of Cornish-all called 'Davies'; indeed the new development at the top of Tregolls Road in Truro is equally devoted to his future offspring and those of Prince Charles.  Units at Davies Parc start at £450 K.  When NOT fathering children or taking over the Duchy, Jon is also hard at work in the medical profession - he treats the people of Cornwall for their aches and pains. Known for his caring and compassionate nature as well as scrupulous attention to medical investigation, to date so far fewer than 81% of his patients have ever died.  Well done Jon we say.

Martyn Oates - Middle

Whilst Moses was found amongst bullrushes on the Nile and brought up by Egyptian aristocracy, our dear chum Oatsey was fortunate enough to be found in a skip on the top of Carn Marth and brought up by Cormac.  As such he works 5 minutes in every hour and applies for a 3 month road closure 'to protect the workforce' as he cleans windows, mends fridges and rewires rabbit hutches. 

Rob Searle - Bass

The 'shiniest' of our group and also a keen fisherman, Rob has been requested by both Trinity House and latterly BBC1 not to fish too close to lighthouses to avoid the possibility of helicopters landing on his head.

Martin Foy - Middle

The most upstanding member of the group. When we manage to get a tranquiliser dart into Mr Rowes neck to stop him talking you may occasionally hear some words of wisdom from our Foy. His being a member of  the Bilderberg group, a leading light of the Illuminati and a the Don of the Falmouth Cosa Nostra has really helped us through the dark years of the recession and now as well as flogging CDs we've branched out into narcotics, Ponzi scams, protection rackets and Saffron Cake. Don Foy, we kiss your ring.

Bruce Bellingham - Baaass

Bruce can be seen propping himself up at most bars, walking into them, breaking out from behind them or talking rubbish in them. Occasionally, AND due to the work of the ‘care in the community team’ he can be seen acting fairly responsibly and ‘singing’ in them as well. The Oggymen often do charity work and Bruce is one of their most ambitious projects. 

Jon Dennis - Bass

Jon is keen on cycling and during a recent power cut in Falmouth managed to supply the entire national grid with 3.2 MW of power simply by pedalling on a stand and engaging his dynamo...uses Immac (R) to stop his leg hair from catching fire.

Andy Grant - Middle

Following a punishing 2 hour course on a boating lake just south of the M42, Andy now runs a Sail Training and Navigation business based in the town and has just bought a large yacht which he sailed directly from the Med to Falmouth. Using a 1986 edition of an AA  UK roadmap, unscheduled stops for directions included Midway Island, St Helena, Par  and the Magellan Strait.  Falmouth was sighted completely by chance having made passage for 43 hours along a rhumb line track made by a shred of marmalade stuck to page 4.

Andy Kilburn - Middle

Andy is well known for his legendary exploits in Falmouth RNLI.   Recently investing in a new fishing vessel, Andy has done for squid fishing what 'Jaws' did for open water swimming and now he spends most of his time in the Shetlands trying to earn enough money to a.  fly home to b. buy enough bait to c. catch enough of the molluscs to d. pay for his fishing boat to e. pay for his ticket back to the Shetlands. He regularly joins in our practices via live satellite link and does favours for sailors in Lerwick.

Dave Keating - Top

After experiencing phenomenal success as one of the main characters in ‘Soldier Soldier’ co-starring alongside some bloke whose name none of us can now remember, Robson’s career took a nose dive and he found himself very much not ‘up on the roof’; indeed the low point in his life came when he was forced to eat fish for 2 years whilst ‘sleeping’ on the bottom bunk in an Alaskan trawler. Eventually snorting up to 5 kilos of Arctic Charr a day, Robson had hit the nadir of his life and finally resolved to do something about it. Jumping ship in the Aleutians he stowed away on a factory boat bound for Newlyn and arrived in the promised land only a little over 14 years later.

 

Rob Denton - Bass/Tenor

Our newest member.  Cat stuck in a tree? Child with head stuck in railings?  Chip pan fire? Maybe your house is cut off by a raging torrent?  In any case, if it's any of those, don't call Rob-he's a policeman.  Yes, if 'falling down the stairs', or 'slipping over in the cells' down Veor Nick is your thing then this is the man to know.
