Another local 60s group was the "Cyclones" did a tour of europe somewhere, still see the bass guitarist pretty regular. M.S. :)

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s
 
me memories vague about the Cyclones, perhaps Alan Gilmartin can add to this,as i know he knew some of em, or maybe Tony our new lad remembers or the soundcasters played wi em?:)

I do remember the name Cyclones cashy, but I think they were phasing out when we were getting started, around '64. If I can dig out all my photos and stuff, there might be some more groups we used to play with.
No-one's mentioned Gideons Ways, who I think were post Scorchers. Apart from the Dansaks and Soundcasters, they were probably the other major band of the time.

Ask Mick when you see him Cashy, ask him who were the guys in the group,and if he has any photos, still got to write to him yet. Dublomad your right the scorchers were one of the major groups at that time, they play at the Cavern once, Dave Robinson, trevor Gardener, Jim Payne, dave Ayrton was the manager, roadie,

Jim Payne was the drummer, Jaysay. He went on to play in a whole series of pro bands, including the legendary Accy supergroup, Accrington Stanley. Been talked about on here a few times.

Jaysay...was the Trevor Cunliffe you mention a really big bloke??...If so i'm afraid he died some years back, he went to Germany to live and Play, and passed away over there....i never saw him, but my ex-wife was related to him, and said he was a brilliant drummer!

Best Regards - Taggy
