BIG LIL

BIG LIL was formed in 1971 and featured Steve Salmon ( bass) / David Salmon ( Hammond organ) / Martin Knight (drums) / Phil Badland (guitar) / Ian Broad (vocals) / Ken Moore ( guitar and sax) . The music played was lots of pop and rock covers.

 

 

 

 

 

HALF MOON

HALF MOON were founded in mid 1970s and featured many line ups. Originally, it was Peter ‘Lou’ Cheetham (vocals) , Jim Mould (drums) / Roger Harvey ( guitar) / Brian Mould (guitar) / Dave Tomlins (bass) / Dave Salmon ( keyboards) but the final line up was Rob Rushton ( vocals) / Roger Harvey ( guitar) / Dave Tomlins (bass) / Dave Salmon ( keyboards) / Chris Moyden (drums) / Brian Mould (guitar). Others members included a young and gifted Peter Bacanin, Phil Lenoir ( former drummer with Black Cat Bones ) etc.

The band did 2 BBC radio broadcasts and the music was mix of funk and rock.
These photos were taken at a performance at Baileys in Hanley and include Les Scott ( the former Sentinel journalist)
The band split up around 1977 ish

 

RA

Line up was Alistair Campbell ( drums) / Steve Salmon ( bass) / David Salmon ( Hammond organ) / Phil Greaves (guitar)/ Ian Broad (vocals)

Our main claim to fame was playing at the Cavern in Liverpool on 2 occasions (one was a double up where we played a set at the Cavern and then at Phoenix Club). When Ian Broad and myself visited Liverpool several years ago, we found our ‘brick ‘ in the Cavern Wall with Ra’s name on one, this proved that we played there !!!

 

 

 

 

THE PHASE 1969

These photos feature The Phase which was formed about 1969. The music was again covers with about 3 of our own. The music was pop and soul covers but featured more progressive rock . Hair started growing and we changed the name from Page 27 to The Phase, as we felt it was more ‘hip’ for the psychedelic times in the late 60s !!! We split up in 1971.

Line up was Derek Yeomans ( drums) / Reg Tooth ( guitar) / Peter Cooke (bass) / David Salmon (organ) / Ian Broad (vocals) / Ken Moore ( guitar and sax)

THE STREAMLINENER 1969

Dave Birkenhead, Glen Martin, John Askey and Tony Kay

THANKS TO JOHN ASKEY FOR THE FOLLOWING INFO

Sandie Shaw had a London based band called The Paramounts for her touring gigs, they were offered a recording contract and left Sandie, Jackie Trent who was friends with Miss Shaw offered to put a small touring band together for her from local boys in Stoke, they were, Ian Holding, Derek Probyn, Bill Honeyman and Tony Kaye, which after a few changes is the band in the photo, Dave Birkenhead, Glen Martin, Tony Kaye and John Askey. Sandie’s previous band put a single out called “A Whiter Shade of Pale” and changed their name to Procul Harem. When our original drummer Bill Honeyman left to join “The Ivy League” we advertised in the Melody Maker for a drummer, and eventually hired Glen Martin, who had been the drummer with “Hedgehoppers Anonymous” who also had the copyright on the name from Johnathan King, so when we were not working with Sandie we were Hedgehoppers. After some two years and two European tours with Sandie, I was still only 21, and frustrated with the cabaret scene, I was offered a job with a local Progressive Rock Band called “Toyshop” whose bass player Steve Nixon was leaving for personal reasons

 

 

 

THE DOMINATORS 1966


Mick Rogers / John Griffiths / Jacci Lewis / John Askey / Roger Bull

footnote from john askey:
The Dominators…..quite a popular band around the early 60s…
we even did a version of “My boy Lollipop” ( did I really admit to that)

PLEASE HELP
A MESSAGE FROM MICK MATHEWS

I’m not sure how many of us ‘old guys’ still have enough memory
cells left to shift back a few years (decades)
but I’m trying to get back in touch with a friend,
and old bass player band peer of mine.

If anyone recalls Phil Robinson, of Stoke (worked at Michelin at one point)
and knows his whereabouts / email address / phone number,
I’d really appreciate you dropping it to me in a note (mick335@sbcglobal.net).

Phil played bass with me in Funktion (funk band mostly based in Crewe),
then Chinese Whispers (Clubland band).
The last band I am aware he played with was Never Reet,
which was a Potteries-based rock band that I know played at the likes of the
Gardener’s Arms, in Stoke (was Campbell Road, I believe).

Appreciate anyone’s help.

(PS. He doesn’t owe me money, so you can safely pass on his details!).

THE FOURTUNES (2010)

Graham Cooper, who hales from Stoke, has been playing in bands since a teenager.
One of his first bands was called Peter & The Persuaders. In the early days of pop Graham’s band was taken under the wing of Tony Hatch and got to play with a host of Britain’s best and well-known bands <i>before</i> they became the big names we know and love today. Graham can boast of rubbing shoulders with the likes of Jethro Tull, Slade, The Hollies and The Beatles!
Graham is The FourtuneS front man; he shares lead and backing vocals with Dean, and plays lead and rhythm guitars.

Dean James, a Bolton lad, started on his musical path at the tender age of 15 as the drummer with a band called Loose Change in 1966. In 1968 after seeing The Bee Gees and hearing Maurice Gibb’s Rickenbacker Bass playing, he decided that he also wanted to produce those same commanding deep driving bass sounds. So in 1968 bought a Hofner Violin Bass of Mr McCartney fame! A number of bands followed, The Vectors, Image Replay, Phoenix Knights, Inpulse.
“One gig in Bolton I particularly remember, there was a fellow band on the bill called The Kimbos, a great band where <i>all four</i> members were left handed! “
Dean is a founder member of The FourtuneS TRIBUTE band and shares lead and backing vocals, and now does play a Rickenbacker 4003 bass and is responsible for the bands sound setup – so if it’s not up to scratch, it's Dean's fault!

John ‘The Keys’ Merriman, as the name suggests, plays keyboards and also provides backing vocals and is the only local man in the band! John is a founder member of The FourtuneS TRIBUTE band, is very easy going and just can’t do enough for everyone.
He has made several recordings as a freelance and with various bands in the 60's / 70's.
Pack of Cards, S.O.S., Lead Iron Brewery, Lynne Breeze Duo, Phoenix Knights and Park Avenue (along-side Eddie Mooney, former lead singer / bass player with the DAKOTAS now with the original FORTUNES).

Drummer Peter Amos is The FourtuneS latest member. Originally from London, Pete started work in Marshall’s music shop in London and has met many of the countries most famous musicians. He has played drums professionally for many years. Moving to the North about fifteen years ago, Pete plays a beautiful vintage Ludwig drumkit and his solid drumming perfectly compliment’s The FourtuneS musicality and we count ourselves very 'Fourtunate' to have him with us.

VIKKI B ( former vikki reynolds )

Vikki B
Born June 1980 in sunny Stoke On Trent.
Vikki took part in school shows and attended the Hilton school of dance from the age of 8 to 15 completing the gold bar 3 grade in Latin, Ballroom and Modern disco dance.
After school Vikki took to college and studying until she discovered her passion for singing and entered various amateur contests...Vikki went on to join friends and form a 4 piece band called the Barstormers and they gigged briefly around the shropshire area...covering hits from the 60s to the present day.
She then joined forces with her now husband to put together 'Party duo' Barbie and Ken who have proved to be a good hit in Stoke On Trent, entertaining at most local venues....Vikki still had a love for her dancing background and went on to join girl band Rythmystic who had some brief success in the area covering all the recent chart hits and releasing their own single and music video....Due to too much travel and other commitments Vikki left the girl band and went back to the duo who then decided to take up work offered in the south of Spain....This went
on to be a great opportunity and Vikki spent 6 months entertaining in the costa del sol...also joining forces with Ken Reynolds and Jim Luff to form acoustic trio 'KiC' who still peform several times a year. Vikki is now back on the scene in Stoke and gigs all around staffordshire and shropshire covering all of her favourite hits by Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Kylie, Paloma Faith, Norah Jones, Lady Gaga, KT Tunstall to the classic acts such as the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Blondie and many more.
Vikki has now found a love for writing and intends to join forces with the extremely talented Al Saunders and aim for world domination!! Watch this sPACe........

MICK SHENTON

Mick Shenton started as a Singer and guitarist, but was persuaded to play bass for the band Seesaw, a band that had a great deal of success at the time, playing warm up to The Who, Pink Floyd, Yes, and loads of famous bands of that era. The others were the famous Noel Trent on drums, the infamous Kenny Reynolds, (Ken and Barbie), on voice, and the late Kevin Green on guitar. After the death of Kevin, they had a few of the local luminaries playing guitar for them, like Mick Matthews, and Ron Smith, and Little Mick on Hammond. (What has happened to him?)
About seven years ago Mick semi retired to the Costa del Sol near Marbella and set up a little studio in the basement, where he has been recording some old stuff from the earlier days, and some newly written stuff. It has proved a success and a few fellow musos and friends have taken advantage to record their own stuff, at a cost of a few beers and wine.
Here is a selection of old and new, and a couple from friends, Alan McKay and Ron Campbell, who, despite the names are not Scottish but Rhodesian, and write of their life there, sometimes. Hope you like them.
