Terry wrote the following about joining The Enid – It was a lucky break. The band had just split up with its management, and lost its bass player. It was looking for a record deal, and had little to offer in a commercial sense to a more proficient player. I think I had a bit of potential, and was prepared to go and live with a dysfunctional ‘family’ in a freezing cold cottage at the end of a rutted track in the bleakest regions of North Herts where there was nothing else to do but practice, and no money to anything in any case! We were made for each other. 

 

Factory

I asked Andy where the name ‘Factory’ came from and got this reply :

Well I was working in a factory around that time, it was on an industrial estate. (Tich Turner was working for another company on the same estate, which was where I first met him). I don’t know if that’s why we called it Factory, but maybe. We thought of it as a band that made music, therefore – Factory. The first name we had was Jack Plugg, which we thought was hiliarious for a couple of weeks, and then the joke wore off! A friend of mine at Hastings College, called Dave Gurney, suggested we call ourselves Cherubim, Seraphim, Angel & Tone! Umm, thanks, Dave!                          Andy Qunta

Lists bands with record releases from this era and details of band members. I did find the mention of ‘Factory’ in here. Pity it only goes up to 76.

SMART 3

Another successful afternoon and with the sun at last shining, it was good to see some new people. Thanks to everyone who turned up. Having taken along samples of a potential gig guide review pamphlet , talk was about what pubs and cafe’s to get on board and how to proceed to the next level. What happened to ‘Ultimate Alternative Mag’, ‘The Entertainer’ etc. Lots of chat about Stallion reforming for a one off gig at  the Big Green Cardigan festival. Phil Gill showed some rare photos of Stallion at the Marquee Club and anyone remember when they played ‘Bonitas Club’ when Tich was singing, promoted by Trevor Bolton from Disco 45 magazine?  Lots of memories about Steve Demetri. Kast Off Kinks at the White Rock but missing the Davies’s, Mini bus idea to gigs, vinyl selling again. Barry’s Blog, Barry Taylor has written a blog which I will post here seperately. Also talk about the clubs ‘Lazy Bones’, ‘Astral’, White Rocks Baths & The Fountain. Apparently ‘Pretty Things have played Falaisle Hall in the 60’s with Ted Crouch Band supporting!  Glen Matlock, Stranglers, Gary Moore,  Roger Daltrey memories of playing the pier,  Jools Holland series back on tv, Sham 69 coming to Flairz, memories of Monkey Dave at the Hi Fi, Beatles Day 14 and more.
