Geoff Peckham… Around ’68 when I was 15 or so, I auditioned for rhythm guitarist (I was a bass player) with Town Council. It was at someone’s house in Hastings and Steve D and a bass player with glasses were there. The latter had a ‘classic’ bass and wouldn’t let me try it. They tested my diminished chords with Fire Brigade and Got to Get You into My Life. I thought I did well but I didn’t pass. It’s funny what you remember isn’t it.
Jac... Paul Wiseman is amazing!
Bertie Wiseman… My dad Paul Wiseman awesome find.
Steve Kinch… Always thought Paul Wiseman had a Long John Baldry look about him.
Andy Qunta… I agree, & a bit of Paul Jones in there too!
Andy Knight… Geoff, I suspect the Bass player was Bob Shipway and the bass was a Burns Bison?
Geoff Peckham… You’re probably right, Andy, but don’t recall. Thought I did well remembering what I did! Except that it was probably augmented and not dim. chords.
Terry Corder… It was Bob Shipway and he did have a Burns Bison, black If I remember correctly. He also used a burns amp. They used to play at the Round Table.
