They performed a mixture of comic songs, comedy sketches and the poetry of McGough, and released a number of singles on EMI between 1966 and 1970, and on Island and Warner Bros. thereafter, achieving Top 10 success in the UK with:

Thank U Very Much” (No. 4), composed by McGear;
Lily the Pink” (# 1), based on a traditional song about Lydia Pinkham.

Liverpool Lou” (# 7), recorded during the 1974 McGear sessions with Wings.

Jack Bruce, Elton John, Graham Nash and Jimi Hendrix were among the session musicians who performed on The Scaffold’s records (none of the trio being musicians).
