Give the reprobate my regards next time you see him, just tell him you've been talking to John Farrer. We used to move around in the same circles in our teens, quite a long time ago now

Will do! I work with him at the family business, let me know if you've got any stories i can use against him! My mum (Yvonne, you might know her), has tried to call Gordon Holmes as she think he has some of their old material and i'd love to have a listen!

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

I think they may have been around in the same period as this group of youngsters, probably all under 15 at the time...

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

Thinking about it, I think this more likely to be sometime around 1967?
