Previously known at The Hard Times, theband played a mixture of soul and blues, as well as hits of the day, usually opening with a John Lee Hooker number. They also wrote their own material, including a number named after the band, although as with most original material at the time the crowd only wanted to hear songs they knew and often stopped dancing.
The band also witnessed this when they support The Gods (pre-Uriah Heep) at Culdrose Air Base. During band numbers there would be a surge to the bar until the crowd recognised a familiar number.
The band would support The Gods on many occasions, the first being at Culdrose. During the gig as usual there were free drinks in the Officers Club. The band got so drunk they left the roadie behind and he had to walk all the way back to Falmouth!
The band would always try to keep their set list fresh, adding a number each week. This meant they could play a two hour set without repeats. On one occasion they played a gig at Camborne School of Mines, despite playing four hours straight there were still complaints that they had played some songs twice!
Sadly Dave passed away many years ago.
