GUEST,Tom Bliss Forgotten rock bands of the 70s (242* d) RE: Forgotten rock bands of the 70s 22 Feb 10


Mike 'Mutter' Slater was/is the Stackridge flautist. (remember Slark - which was nicked for the honey monster advert)?

The fiddle player was/was again Mike Harris, and they have two girls now.

When the Mikes left, Keith Gemmell the sax/flute from Audience joined. My two favourite bands in one. Heaven.

Audience's guitarist (Howard Worth?) played a very loud classical guitar, which was rare in those days, and the drummer (whose name escapes me) used to do a massive drum solo with his bare hands. For the climax he used to heft a hand bell, and lay into the cymbals with it. Complete nutter but great theatre.

Howard joined some major band when the lead singer left (or died) but it never came to anything. I can't have been The Doors, can it? Someone big, I seem to remember.

Vikings was a great song.

Skin Alley's hammond player used to play the trumpet at the same time.
