OK Jay - look at the High School prefects picture in the 50s and 60s photos album on my profile page. I'm at the RH end of the second row. That pic would have been taken at the end of the school year 1964 so probably July, that's 3 months after the Scorchers pic which was 18 April according to the newspaper cutting - 48 years ago next Wednesday! My hair would have grown a couple of inches in that time. So... do you think it's me??

Just seen your PM and replied. I agree with you, I think it's me. Perhaps I should start a poll? My other half doesnt think it's me but he didn't know me then... we've only been together 35 years...

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

Hi All, Haven't been on for ages, as we have had a serious illness in the band. However the New Soundcasters are now officially back on the road and have been joined by Trevor Gardner on lead guitar, so it's now a Soundcaster/Scorchers joint effort. If anyone is doing nothing next Saturday night 13th August then you can catch us at Baxenden Con Club. Usually kicks off around 10.00 till late. Even if you don't think much of the band there are usually some 60's people around to catch up with. All welcome. Tony
