About this memory

1963 – David – I remember I used to sleep with the microphone under my pillow.

Jim – Our first outings were a very small affairs one at Davidson’s Main’s Church Hall with around 50 people and in May 1963 and around the same time we played during the Interval at a Phanton Five Dance at Lockhart Memorial Church Hall in Albion Road, but our 1st gig was at Portobello Youth Club in June 1963, arranged by David Lax (Sandy’s older brother) we supported The Golden Crusaders from Bathgate a well known band at that time.
