Jacquie Ponder… I met Ian in the 60’s in the U.S. (California). We dated while he was here and then he went back home. I would love to know what he is doing now .… 40 years later.

Alan King… they wouldn’t have The Boomerangs back

Trying to locate members of Bern Elliott & The Klan

Michele Wilson asks

I am trying to locate the old band members of Bern Elliott’s group The Klan. They were on Ready Steady Go 4th September 1964. Can you help me. I am trying to put a programme together about the band. Thanks. Miles & Michele Wilson.

Terry Lucas… Hi luv I tidied Bern and The Klan Dave cameron, ex Fleewrekkers, lead guitar, Tim Hughes rhythm guitar and vocals( passed away) Andy Knottley skins, Trevor Haworth bass I think, memory is failing me, this might help though

Michele Wilson… Hi Good to be in touch, I was Tims sister. I remember you well. Please send me details of Bern Elliot and any e-mils to get in touch with. Love to tlk to you again. Michele

Bob Pateman… Hi – I know of Tim Hughes more as a Hasher than a musician. I just looked up the Fernmen on Wikipedia and did not see Tim listed as a band member? Any explanation?

Roger Humphries… Terry Lucas. …. I’m sure that John (Silbey) Pierce was the bass player with The Klan. and the band also had an organist (Vox Continental) played by a guy who lived in Maidstone Road, Chatham.

The Stormsville Shakers – Witch Doctor 8th April 1967

Mick O’Dowd… The Heads were nobodies!

Paul Huggett… Saw PGT and the, Stormsville guys, at Chislehurst Caves very good too.

Graham Matthews… Being just a child of 12 in ’67’ I was too young but my elder brothers used to frequent The Witch Doctor BUT I discovered Phillip Goodhand – Tait as a solo artist in the early 70’s at The Dome in Brighton. I went there regularly to see Family ( amazing band) and twice Phillip was the support act and I thought he was fantastic.

Alan Esdaile… Remember meeting Phillip Goodhand-Tait at DJM Records in the 70’s. His songs were more popular recorded by other people, Love Affair and others.

Alan King… Claire?
