The Nosmo Kings if I remember correctly where managed for most of the time by Lennie Herbert from Great Harwood, who regular had them on at the Mercer Hall and can remember them supporting a Lennie Herbert promotion with headliners Nero & The Gladiators. Also the lead singer with the Nosmos(for a long number of years was very pally with the jay Turner Four and I think he did one or two guest spots, so I can see where there maybe a little confusion.

The Vidors became the Dynamites, The Dynamites became the Jay Turner Four, The Jay Turner Four became the James Turner Four and the James Turner Four became Second Time Around. This band spanned (the band spanned over 20 plus years with varying members) but the long term main players where: Gerard Navin (lead) John Tillotson (Bass) Ronnie Green (Rhythm & Vocals) Noel Smith (Drums) Vocalist: The late James Turner, The late Billy Kerr. also: John Turner Drums

The guy I'm thinking of who was lead vocals and brilliant with Nosmo's was Pete Hibbert and the group which where pre Nosmos was Mark Day & The Nights managed by Lennie Herbert.

Also if your interested click on this site (or paste into browser) and it should show a old photo of the Soundcasters, plus other stuff if you look for it on the tabs eg: Rev Black & Rockin Vicars, The Swinging Hangmen from Haslingden plus plus plus Accrington Arts, Con Club etc... Do you remember the Cavern on Milnshaw Lane? was run with a ex Bolton Wanderers Footballer, remember John Lee Hooker here plus loads of other bluesy type acts. The Swinging Hangmen appeared here once or twice. Country Gents always on at the Accy Con..

The Soundcasters on Manchesterbeat - the group and music scene of Manchester in the 60's

The Four Pennies were still going strong here in the South-West until fairly recently. The only original member was Mike Wilsh who composed Juliet. I booked them for a couple of concerts at the school where I worked.

I believe Lennie Herbert worked as a progress chaser at English Electric. Was certainly there during the 1960/70's. He was also a Special Constable in Accrington for a good many years. Nice chap.
