Tamworth Herald – 06/02/70
Local group hope to make charts

A LOCAL GROUP may soon be making a bid for the record charts as a well known progressive recording company wishes them to make tapes of their compositions at the company’s studios.

A song writing contract with a music publishing company is also a future possibility. The group is retaining a semi-professional status for the time being with Archer continuing work as a joiner and Snip and Harrison as tele-communications engineers.

However they hope to turn professional as soon as Camelot has established its name and reputation and the future looks promising. Bookings include a local concert and a two week tour of Ireland definitely fixed for early March.

Recently formed “Camelot” describe the music they play as “heavy acid rock” and comprise of Aden Archer (19), drummer from Polesworth, John Snilth (21) bass player from Tamworth and Rod Harrison (21) also of Tamworth, who plays lead guitar. All have formerly belonged to other local groups.

Rod Harrison, believes their key to success in the future will be the originality of their composition and playing. The group is to make tapes of their self-penned compositions for a recording company which is interested in recording Camelot at a future date.
