Bomberboy's current selection is:
Black Shuck
by The Darkness
I guess every corner of the world has its “dark” spooky animal that roams around the countryside creating havoc mayhem and... even Death...

Well here in the East of England we have “The Helldog of Norfolk” also quaintly known as Black Shuck and as the Darkness are from over the border possibly ventures into Suffolk too...

The story goes that the Dog if seen then it will result in the death of whomsoever within 12 months. The rumour was perpetrated around my old village by the tale of a Motorcycle and sidecar coming down “Simpson’s Hill” towards Puddledock corner on the B1077 between Attleborough and My home Village when it encountered Black Shuck in the middle of the road. There was a minor collision.. but when the Biker stopped and went back to see how the dog was... it had gone.. missing without so much as a little blood...

Within 12 months the Biker on the same road has mis judged the sharp left hander that is Puddledock Corner crashed and perished...

To be fair he wouldn’t be the only one crashes happen all the time at the tricky bend ... though thankfully not too many fatalities

So The Darkness from their #debuts album recall said dog in a song but you get the feeling they are not taking it too seriously

In a town in the east
The parishioners were visited upon
By a curious beast
And his eyes numbered but one and shone like the sun
And a glance beckoned the immediate loss
Of a cherished one
It was the coming of the
Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) That dog don't give a fuck
Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) That dog don't give a fuck
Flames licked round the sacred spire
And the congregation's last line of defence
Was engulfed in fire
As the flaming priest stepped into the firing line
On the business end of despair
God, he took his own life
During the coming of the
Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) That dog don't give a fuck
Black Shuck
(Black Shuck) Black Shuck
(Black Shuck)…
