Memories:
All the Slabcake members were quite popular with the females in Tamworth...no names!!

Six weeks of rehearsal (from scratch, no name, no songs, no music, titles or lyrics) to the first gig - Battle of the Bands heat - won it. Next gig, 2 weeks later Battle of the Bands final - won it. Staffordshire, Mother of All bands, Lichfield - won it. Tamworth Rock Festival, Assembly Rooms - Ted, Paul, Simon, Rick, Andy and me - Jimmy. All the guys were great friends and fantastic musicians and songwriters in their own right, we just got together once upon a time and rocked Tamworth for a full summer. F*ckin' no worriez
