My mom Jean Veronica Kienberger was a fill in for the Dollies for a short while in the sixties. Can someone please send me any information regarding this as she has forgotten most of it. She remembers wearing a blond wig and touring all over. We lived in Manchester at the time.
Lovely surprise to see this web page and all my wonderful friends from the past. Still rocking and rolling. Would love to hear from anybody. Happy New year from Barcelona!
I do remember The Mixtures really well, didn't one of the lads have a father that roadied for us?
I remember that van - I have a feeling it didn't have any heating!
Did you come to Germany with us?
I have to search through my scrap books now for photos!
I have just found Davina and Jill after 40 years through Manchesterbeat. Davina lives in Australia and Jill in Cyprus. Do give some more info as somethings you forget.
I think the guys in "The Mixture" that you refer to are Paul & Rodger Mycock along with Howard( Eddie ) Edwards on drums. I know that Paul & Roger's father did shunt them about in his van. We reformed The Mixture in 1987, I replaced Roger on Bass as he was working in the south at that time, however, they have actually reformed their old band The Deltones and are still gigging in the Cheshire area, you can find them on facebook and send a message if you wish. I was only having a beer with Paul and Roger about a week ago at a gig in Marple " The George", great band well worth a look at. I now play in another band along with Eddie Edwards on drums, I hope this fills in a few gaps for you. Best regards.
Under The Wire Band.
Just looked at the site again...have been working in Africa! Yes I do remember all of them!
In fact the Dollies aka Feminine Touch have been invited to the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool this coming Sunday for a book launch, written about all the bands that didn't make it big in the 60's.
The Dollies have flown in from Spain Cyprus and Australia where they are all living now! Although we haven't seen each other for 40 years I am quite excited.
I wonder if you will be there..please come and say hello.
Ok thats all for now...bye Maureen.
Hi Maureen, sorry only just picked up your reply to Manchester Beat, glad I could be of some help with the history thing. I will tell the guys in "The Deltones" about your posting on Manchester Beat. You can pick me up on facebook if you log in. Best wishes.
