    Lieutenant Pigeon are an English novelty musical group popular in the early 1970s, originating from Coventry.
    A spin-off from an experimental music band Stavely Makepeace, the group was fronted by Rob Woodward and managed by him and drummer Nigel Fletcher. Other members included bassist Stephen Johnson. The group's sound was dominated by a heavy honky-tonk-style piano played by Woodward's mother, Hilda.

    Lieutenant Pigeon achieved two UK hits: Mouldy Old Dough, written by Woodward with bandmate Fletcher, which reached number one in 1972, followed by Desperate Dan (number 17 in 1973). Both tracks were largely instrumental, with the titles providing virtually the only lyrics. Mouldy Old Dough (the title being an adaptation of the 1920s jazz phrase, vo-de-o-do) became the second biggest selling UK single of the year, behind The Band of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards' bagpipe version of Amazing Grace.

    Hilda Woodward died, aged 85, on 22 February 1999. She was aged 58 at the time of Mouldy Old Dough topping the charts, which made her one of the oldest female artists to feature on a UK number one single.
