The Gingermen are now The Inn-Sect beat group
Remember a local beat group called The Gingermen? Yes! Well forget it, there The Inn-Sect now.

But a change of name is only one part of the group's change of identity. On stage they have a new look. Their manager persuaded them to dress alike as he felt it creates a good impression. They did it and decided on maroon polo-neck sweaters and white jeans.

Their sound has also been given a boost, bass guitarist Bob Heath can plug into a new amplifier and Graham Titley thumps out the beat on a new set of Broggen drums. The group are however steadily changing its repertoire by cutting out some upbeat numbers and bring in a few ballads to cater for the tastes of different audiences. But the Inn-Sect can still hammer out the beat when it's wanted.

The present trend of folk music has had its effect on the group and several Bob Dylan numbers have been introduced to their long list. Although they came through an audition to play at the exclusive Belfry Hotel at Wishaw with flying colours they still play to the youngsters at Tamworth Youth Centre where the group was born.

Lead singer Dave "Pree" Pierepoint, who rumour has it looks more like Rolling Stone Mick Jagger every day, will be at the microphone on 17th December at Drayton Manor and the group will be featured at the Tamworth Heralds Annual Dinner and Dance. The rest of the group will also be their Dave Bates on lead guitar, Colin Stokes with his rhythm guitar, Bob Heath on bass, Graham Titley on drums.
