Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

I am trying to remember all the groups around the 60s, that I have not already mentioned before
Not in any order, Blue Diamonds. Wenders Way. Blue Condition, Happy Medium. Hobos. The Partners. Hi_Fi's Royston Jones. and theirs more to come when I get my thinking cap on... Your right about Nosmokings it was our group ( Me bass, Dave Tom Tomlinson Guitar ,Alan Bradshaw Drums & Jim Turner Vocals. but I can't remember who decided on the name ..I am still trying to get used to the webb and hopefully to be able to put on some photos at a later date when I find out how to do it.I have one of the first meeting of the accy rockers don't know if lennie put this one on, but one more time wont harm...

The band was called Blue Diamonds. They played skiffle in the local WMCs
Roy Jones, Harry Boyer were other members. Pete Hibbert was the singer.

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

Hi All. Haven't been on here for a while, but thought I would do an update on the Soundcasters. We are now back on the road and doing a 50th Anniversary 'Tour' of Acci. Pop Club, Brooks, Platts, Sydney St., Bash Con, Stanhill, plus a couple of pubs, Victoria and Bay Horse in Baxenden. The 'Tour' starts at Acci Carnival on Sat. 13th June. We now have a very settled line up including new band members, most of whom you will know as they played in Acci sixties groups. Check it all out on our new website Soundcasters - About Soundcasters
Hope to see some of you around if you can make it. All for now Tony

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

Well I never, just stumbled upon this, The Dappers used to park their van in Oswald street when I were a lad and I used to babysit for George Stalker on Spencer street who was one half of the James Boys. Never heard either band play right enough as I was far too young :-)

I remember The Warriors rehearsing on Saturday mornings for a while in the old church hall at St Augustine's on Bolton Avenue in Huncoat. This would be when I was aged about 12 or 13 in 1964 ish.

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

I recall the Saturday morning rehearsals in St. Augustine's too, Choirboy.
By the way, in my other post I suggested The Warriors van was a Commer but I believe it was actually an old Bedford, like the one here. Was it painted orange, or is that another mis-remembered detail?
The Andersons lived opposite my grandparents, on the corner of Norfolk and Turkey Streets, and I certainly recall the excitement, at least amongst some of us early teens, when they appeared on Thank Your Lucky Stars.
