Memories
Name changed from The Four Aces (Four XXXXs - Ed.) in 1967. Mick Rutherford joined in 1968 on vocals. Played regularly at The Coalville Grand Ballroom and the 76 Club in Burton. Also Fazeley Victory Club, Drayton Manor Ballroom and The Belfry. Supported the Moody Blues at the Belfry in 1969. Changed the name to Duterium in 1971 with Mick Rutherford on vocals, Harold Lord keyboards, Ronnie Aucot (Allcot - Ed.) bass and a drummer from Woodville who's name escapes me.

Played at the Red Lion in Ripley many times, always to great audience reactions. Kippa was known to do a handstand and flip over onto his feet in the audience. Once, at the Co-op Hall in Nuneaton, during Land of a Thousand Satisfactions, Kippa did a 'Full Monty' strip and the amp he was behind rolled across the stage leaving Kippa to run off, hiding his embarrassment!!

Thanks to: Jon Smith/Mick Rutherford
