Steve Kinch… Anyone who knew/knows me from the 70s in Hastings, will know that I used to play in a band called “Factory”. We were: Andy Qunta on keys, 12 string guitar & vocals; Tony Qunta on guitar, violin and vocals; Lol Cooksey on drums, and myself on bass (replacing “Jaffa” Peckham, who left in 1974). We’d play the length and breadth of the UK, sometimes venturing to mainland Europe. I guess you’d call it my first full-time band. Unfortunately, the much sought after record contract eluded us. Consequently, none of the material was ever properly recorded. Fast forward to 2020… Some of those songs from then have now been properly recorded and are available to download. Bass duties are shared between myself and Jaffa. The album was recorded the good old fashioned way: Four guys in a room all playing together 🙂. Vocals, and one or two overdubs done later. NB Andy wrote “Tribal Statistics” featured on Manfred Mann’s Earth Band’s album “Somewhere in Africa”. He was also co-writer of “You’re the Voice”, which became a worldwide hit for John Farnham. You could say, Andy honed his songwriting chops with “Factory” 🤘Download “Aiming High”, the perfect lockdown companion 

Robert Blackham… This is a fantastic rock album – I love it.  Great melodies and performances.  Bob

Last Year, Laura came to the UK to record ‘Human” along with bassist Chris Chiarcos. The first single from the album, “Skeletons” has also received Radio 2 airplay and featured on SubTV and another song from the album in R2 magazine. It is a rare thing for Harvey to venture outside of the studio but with “Human”, he wanted to take his latest work on the road and perform a series of rare live shows…            http://www.harveysummers.com
