Memories
Originally a two-piece, with just guitar and percussion. Exploded into a throbbing rock band. Possibly! The band played two gigs as a two piece, playing a load of Chuck Berry numbers and the place went mad.

Lots of rehearsing, a short supply of actually getting out there and gigging. The two brothers didn’t get on very well and there was quite a lot of shouting.

Andy Sale was the proud owner of a left-handed Fender jazz bass and Dave Smith played a jet black Les Paul variation. Steve mostly stuck with his plugged in acoustic.

For a short time Steve Smith played bass with Andy playing second guitar. They soon changed back as Andy was a more natural bassist. Andy Sale later showed up in Mother Savage with Dave Dukes.

There are some dodgy old recordings of us rehearsing but I hope they stay lost.

Thanks to: David A. Dukes
