A popular and long lasting entertainment/rock act. They turned professional in the 80s and toured as a comedy band. Around 1978 Trevor Hunking answered and advert in the paper for a drummer wanted and joined the 2nd incarnation of the band. They would go to tour successfully across the UK and abroad and had quite a bit official fan following. 

Line up 1 recorded the 'Mistimed it Again' LP in 1977 and the second line-up recorded the 'Cup of Tea and A Slice of Cake' LP in 1981. There was also a 3rd album released later, but on cassette only. 'Barney' Trevivian was the band’s principle songwriter and after he left the band relied more on cover material.
