The Dekkers
Whalley Range

If there's a more obscure Manchester band that actually played a live gig, I'll eat my Rickenbacker 325 Capri.

Hailing from Whalley Range, guitarists Graham Porter, John Gill and Lalith "Fitness" de Mel (vocalist and drummer names now lost in the mists of time), played a local church hall 1962. The dance floor was packed and the girls were as enthusiastic as if Stockport's Hollies had showed up.

One guitarist was Michael Tomkinson and I think drums was John Benson, who dated my friend.
