Hi Paul, this is my 3rd attempt of a message, as new to a computer and keep messing up, though I did get an unexpected reply from Phil Coggan/ex.Lee Wade and the W. Ones, great! I'm trying to find an old friend from the 60's she was a school friend and then we knocked about when we left school, as in Mr Smiths/Droki., Jungfrau, 'Wheel and Oasis/Reubens etc., she was called Denise Jones, lived in Dukinfield, as I did and she had a much younger brother and sister, but she found lurv' and we lost touch. Hope she or someone reads M/Beat. and returns my 'message'. I find your 'site' heartwarming re. the 60's., but just wish more people would contribute. I check it out 2/3 times a day - what memories of Rev. Black etc., Lee Wade & the W. Ones, the Corvettes, Richard Kent Style and Factotums (knew Nigel as I went to Fairfield High in early 60's and saw him a lot, but he never noticed me, boohoo! Very sad to read he had died so young. Never realized I was such a groupie, but got married in August 1969., so that clipped my wings, hehe! Hope I get a reply from Denise!! Many thanks.

Pete Taylor

I just want to inform anyone who knew Martin Sleator, who was the bass guitarist with Pete and the Persuaders in the 60's, and later with other groups in the 70's. Later to become the owner of the artists agency. EMPORER ARTISTS passed away suddenly at his home in Spain on 20th Aug 2010. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

To Justin (Ripper) Unell It's only just been brought to my attention that you wanted to contact anyone from Powerhouse. As you posted the message on December 2008, it's possible you may have changed your e-mail address but both myself and vocalist, Tiddy Gibbs have e-mailed you. So sorry it's taken so long to respod but we're REALLY EAGER to hear about your Dad, Jack. He was a great guy and we were all gutted when he said he couldn't turn professional with us. I'm particularly sad to hear of his passing.
John Firth, drums.

Does anyone have any information about the band, The King Pins who did a single for the Star Club label in Germany and played at the club in 1966-1967. I think they relocated to Stoke on Trent later. The picture sleeve shows a five-man band and it's called "Gotta Get A Good Thing Going" c/w "Willow Tree".

I think Colin Turner was the bass player
