1965 -1972

2009 Technique reunion

Line-up included  
Derek McCulloch lead guitar and vocals
Ian Wrigley organ and vocals
Les Andrew drums
Stuart Adams bass and vocals



I was a drummer with the group 'Technique' - sometimes called 'Manchester Technique' (we lasted seven years from 1965 -1972) - the group consisted of Derek McCulloch - lead singer and lead guitar, Ian Wrigley - organist and back-up vocals, Stuart Adams - bass guitar and back-up vocals and me as drummer ( they kept the microphones well away from me - I was tone deaf!) - later in our career,  our agent was 'Ugly Ray Terrret' (Spelling) - he wrote a song called 'No, No, No, No' which we recorded

It was great to see the picture of Pete Summerscales - featured in your article - he played with my brother Kevin Andrew in a group (can't remember the name, but they had a great bass player!)

Les mentioning Ugly Ray Terret prompts me to elaborate slightly. As I recall, Terret was introduced to Technique via Barry Russel, our agent/entrepreneur of the late 60's early 70's. Barry also ran the Thing Club in Oldham. Terret had been ... Read More
