Can i throw The Real People and Shack [The 'Waterpistol' album is a lost classic.] into the mix as well?

Before Rich was in The Truth he was in The Colours a cracking local (Newport) mod band .I remember a coach load of us went up to see The Colours play an Ilford Alldayer (1984) where The Truth [sign in to see URL] long after the event he joined The Truth.

Thought the Skylarks were excellent, quite often playing supports for 'bigger' bands playing Liverpool. And a lot of the time a lot better. Have tried getting their album for years with no luck. It was a Japan only release I think, and called something like 20th Century Man??

Rich Parfitt joined The Truth just in time for the Five Live EP if I remember right. Pretty certain I had a tape by the Colours with half a dozen or so tracks on it... The 60ft Dolls were excellent by any standard or time frame, saying that The Big 3 was miles better than Joya Magica.

I can remember seeing another band in Liverpool a couple of times, pretty certain with the Stairs that were a good beaty, garagey sound. For some reason I've got it in my head it was Edgar's brother??? Also remember a band called The Groovers from Southport way who had a great single Happy Holiday/Yesterday's Carnival Queen.

I had an equal love of all three of these bands.
The Persuaders single is a real rarity now days. I think it was Dizzy's first release.

The Numbers (Liverpool) were the best live act I'd seen for years and I was so gutted when George told me they were splitting.
I recall a double bill at the Powerhouse (when situated at Angel) when Mr Kotz. joined The Direction for 'My Side of Heaven'. I was totally blown away!

Dave E's amazing memory will no doubt kick in here. He's the only person I can remember being there constantly over the years.

The Numbers were great, I saw a black and white target advert in the NME one week proclaiming "If the Jam had come from Liverpool they'd have sounded like this". Was enough for me and Chris Dale to venture to the Power Haus to check them out. Very impressive and after the show they couldn't believe that there were Mods who had come to see them and proceeded to give us a demo tape and a t-shirt each. I put the word out to Mr. Class who promptly booked them and the rest as they say is history!
Great bunch of lads aswell and through them, The World got in touch.

The Direction gig where Brian Kotz sang Your Side Of Heaven was suppporting The Lambrettas also at The Power Haus, hold my hands up for getting them to do it. There was a single release gig in Rubys in Carnaby Street for the single on Detour where they repeated it aswell as a few other gigs.

Saw The Colours support the Truth at the old Marquee on a couple of occasions,

Good to see a mention for S*M*A*S*H, fcuking great band and still do the odd gig once in a blue moon. Their album
Icon from 2007 is a corker and the debut single Real Surreal is in one of the best debuts i've ever heard.

Another great single was Speed King by These Animal Men, good live band too. Great idea to enclose a "speed wrap" with a list of upcoming gigs.

Honourable mention must go to Subjagger, fantastic 3 piece who had a Cream/ Bluesbreakers feel to them and launched Acid Jazz subsidary Focus with their debut single before putting an album and single out on Lemon.

Finally from Thamesmead, South East London came Dog, easily one of the best bands i've seen who never fulfilled their potential. I always described them as The Stones in '65 with someone who could sing. If you ever saw them, you'd know what I mean.

SMASH were great along with TAM.

The NWONW thing died before it was born but a tyese 2 bands were the ones that were any good.

Oh Yeah how can we forget the wonderful Dog.

Great friends and a great band. These guys were my way into mod in the 80's. John Bradford & Matt Thompson were my idols back then. I used to knock about with John's brother Danny and we were the 9 year old mods walking around Thamesmead patch & Badged up.
I had a drink a couple of weeks ago with Benny Biggs & Dave Webb. I got there number for you Dave so I will pass them on to you on Sunday. The last time I saw Dog was at the 100 club. I was tripping off my tits and dont really remember much apart from thinking I had pulled a bloke.

Also not forgetting the wonderful
