In the final push to finish what became a full double-album, Paul ushered The Beatles into Trident Studios in London to start recording this delightfully campy piece of newly created nostalgia. There's some old lyrics, like, you know — the woman singing about the man, and she's saying something about 'I wanna have his initials on my monogram.
There's good lyrics and just good thoughts that you don't sort of hear so much these days, you know. And so, I would quite like to have been a 's writer, 'cause I like that thing So this kind of number, I like that thing So this is just me doing it, pretending I'm living in I'd heard a lot of that kind of music growing up with The Billy Cotton Band Show and all of that on the radio.
I was also an admirer of people like Fred Astaire; one of my favorites of his was 'Cheek to Cheek' from a film called 'Top Hat' that I used to have on an old I very much liked that old crooner style, the strange fruity voice that they used, so 'Honey Pie' was me writing one of them to an imaginary woman, across the ocean, on the silver screen, who was called 'Honey Pie.
We put a sound on my voice to make it sound like a scratchy old record. So it's not a parody, it's a nod to the vaudeville tradition that I was raised on.

Hazlewood put together their self-titled debut album on his LHI label, but it was never given a full release. The quartet's promised moment failed to materialise, and by the end of they had split up.
But now, 45 years on, reissue specialist Light in the Attic is releasing the forgotten, semi-mythical album, which they recorded as Honey Ltd. It's an absolute peach of a record, dense with harmonies and steeped in 60s sunshine — a reminder of a year when, in Tremmer's words, they had "just enough money to get there but not enough to go home if our dreams did not manifest".
