Black Watch

Sid the singer was from Failsworth, Mervyn Horrocks lead was from Audenshaw, Johnny Hart drummer was from Droylsden. 

We used to practice in a cellar under a shop, an open drain ran through the cellar but we could practice loud, this was the first group that I ever used my Strat and Vox AC30 all out! 

Merv and Johnny were originally in The Bardots.

I remember Black Watch very well.  Pete Bamber was lead singer when I knew them.  I knew Sid, who's parents Bakery was used for their practice. 

There was another guy called 'little Pete' and a guy called Pat and we followed them all around Oldham for ages.  They had quite a big female following.
