Pete Shaw… Kieran and David, Hi, I’m Pete, the drummer with this band named Harry R and the Jump Jets… BUT… Your are correct that the late Dave “Beano” Easton, Stuart Moir and I (at 15-17yrs old) was The Suspects drummer… This band, Harry R (forged from the Harrier Jet name plus our dancers The Jump Jets) was formed, with others, as the Party band formed from “Jim Jim and The Jims” comprised of Ray Fenwick, Pete Prescott, Andy and Tony Qunta, Dermot Murphy (again with varying others) during its lifetime!!!
