I played drums with the band, Kev Seisey (singer) a great front man, Pete Norrey (guitar), I remember playing the Elizabethan Ballroom, Belle Vue.
Pete and I played with Here and Now in Germany 1971 we toured the American forces bases, other members were Michelle Newbury (keyboards), Loz Timperley (bass), Sandy ?(singer), Rick ?(R/Guitar), Steve ?(singer), sorry must go, matron's on her way round.
Sad Soul! The line up you have here must be a later one.
The rehearsal place was the Marple Brass Band building. I lived in Bramhall, next door to their drummer Dennis Brennan - a Who fan, who was a hairdresser.
I used to go out "on the road" with them around Manchester - Sloopy's, Warmingham Grange, Top Ten, Belle Vue, the Tabernacle in Stockport, various youth clubs in Stockport and also a place - I think a bar in Hyde.
This would be about 1967-68. They had a bass player at one time called Tony at one time (can't recall his surname but he was a big guy who would open the show with James Brown's 'I Feel Good' who designed the band's logo; there was also sax player who sometimes played - a genuine US black guy called Bo who lived in Hyde or Denton. Various organists came and went - I think they tried to tempt Geoff Downes who live on our estate at one point.
I played lead guitar with the band latter half of 1969.
Line up then was Kevin Seisey (hyphen-Brown?), Pete Norrey, Tony Hambleton and Phil (Rex) Walsh. They were a good outfit, but we played all over the bloody place (Torquay one night, Durham the next...).
The schedule made it very difficult to do my "day job", but more important, soul wasn't quite my bag. I'd joined to "fill in" for a while pending another guitarist/keyboards but after 6 months there was no movement so I left.
Presume Tony Burke (above) was "Tony Roadie"...a real case!
Jonny Pevitt on the 3/3/10 post noted the band went to Germany, the band that went there was called Tudor Rose.
Just a little note to say sad souls originally started out as The Myth, most of the band stayed the same for sad souls.
To see what kevin wood is upto now look up wildside bangkok on google/you tube & facebook. (the guys done good)
I think many people will recognise the band through the logo.
The logo was once on Top of the Pops when Amen Corner's
keyboard broke down and they used our keyboard
