Colin Norton… I played drums for the Downliners that night. it was a fun gig as I remember… The only rehearsal that I had was the sound check. No, I did not play on any of their records but I did rehearse with them in the spring of 1967 for a tour of Sweden which never happened. Keith Grant is a great bass player and I really enjoyed playing with him. Our friend, Baz Cooper, was the keyboard player for the Downliners for more than a year and played on the “I Can’t Get Away From You”/”Roses” (Pye) in 1967. The other members for the Hastings gig were Don Craine – Rhythm Guitar and Vocals, Bob Taylor – Lead Guitar. Great memories!
Mick O’Dowd… Had their EP “The Sect Sing Sick Songs” and there was a “sick” version of Leader of The Pack on it.
Colin Norton… Yes, “The Leader Of The Sect” :
