I was in 'The All Blacks' and then when we split and re-formed, 'The Original All Blacks'. In the line up at one stage was Steve Foley who appeared recently on Manchesterbeat doing a spot with Victor Brox.

The 'All Blacks' (so called because we wore all black. It was cheap and easy!) worked with the Pathfinders for some time as we jointly rented a ballroom in Oldham - the Starlight I think it was called.

Maybe some of the Pathfinders might be able to fill in the gaps in my fading memory about this episode.

I was later a founder member and drummer for the Innovation.
