Really really obscure Sheffield bands

Recommended Posts

Newton Brothers

Strange mix

Music 30 years out of date but lyrics were up to date topical news items.

Dr Beeching closing railways

Breathaliser

Sexual indiscressionns of the days politicians.

They were so "bad" you had to see them next time to see if they got worse.

They seldom disappointed.

Southey Club was my usual venue during that period

 

Hey, used to see Patto at the Black Swan, just saying.

 

Cheers

I (Howard Goodison) went to Frecheville Comp and so did Ian Greaves. The other two were from other parts of Sheffield. What is the tape you have? I also remember An Alien Heat, but not too sure about the other bands you mention. I'd be interested to get copies of the mp3s if they're not too big to email. Let me know if you would. Also, be interested to know who you are.

Believe my Uncle was a member of this band....Nick Gabites? 

 

I have the Palis Expose' with Boss Beguine but sadly it has worn out. the other chap who said he had mp3's of the album- did he send them in the end? I really would like to have them again. Messaged my Uncle to see if he still has any of the songs left...

I used to play in a band called PALIS (points and lines in space). I didn't think up the name.

 

Anyone ever see us? We had synths and used to play snippets of Thunderbirds programmes. Appeared at the Top Rank in a battle of the bands and came last.

Do you have any of the mp3's from it? did the other guys send them to u?

I played in The Raiders - early 60's.  We did Saturday dances at St Columbas, Crosspool.  Alternate Saturdays with Joe Cocker who was then Vance Arnold and the Avengers. He was better than we were.

Most obscure and not mentioned one of Sheffiels diggest bands.

'Musical Vomit', played and practiced at 'the Meat Whistle' opposite the Red Lion, 

Holly St. Played at Sheffields student union, prety sure I saw them at the old

Drama Studio on Glosop rd. Wish i'd got footage or pictures of them in action

before they crossed over to the pop world.
