Anyone remember seeing the De-Hems? Interesting another band that was produced by Eddie Grant, so was he involved in booking the bands?

Alan Pepper… Great advert !
I remember Johnny Johnson and the bandwagon clearly with his enormous sunglasses !! Wished I had seen kiki dee though there were some great times in the early 70s up there at the Aquarius . Steve Maxted would rope us up onto the stage to mime to someone FAMOUS Elvis Noddy Holder Gary Glitter to win a bottle of Cheap Plonk !! By the way not sure about De Hems though sorry got carried away there reminiscing ha ha ….

Mick O’Dowd… De Hems were produced by Eddie Grant and I recall they were a raving little soul influenced band.

Del Withers… Hi my mate Dave Hitchens played the electric organ with the De-Hems I remember going to a recording studios in Stamford Hill N16 in the early 70s with him and Eddie Grant was there. I do believe it was his studios and I think he Managed the De-Hems. He was a very pleasant guy.

Stephen Moran… I have very fond memories of the Aquarius. I went there most Thursday’s during the early seventies and looked forward to the Steve Maxted Show. He always opened his set with ‘I Can’t Explain’ by the Who, something I still do now when I DJ!

Steve Maxted… So glad you you enjoyed my shows, and to know that ‘I Can’t Explain’ stayed in your memories so well. Thanks

Martin Zappa… THE Coach House, was Eddy Grants Studio (later Ice Records). Dave Hitchin – Hammond C3, Colin Harrison – Fender Jazz Bass, Steve Jarvis – Vocals, Pedro – Drums, Glenn Garzke – Guitar
