That’s right..Guy’s first band has a live album coming out!
What can we say about Speedball that hasn’t been said before?
One of the few Mod bands that haven’t had the “DETOUR” treatment…
Finally we are proud to announce a full length CD release from Southend’s finest MOD band.
Starting off life as “IDIOT”, but after a false start the band re-grouped from a four piece down to a three piece and started playing all the local haunts. Then after a few choice gigs, London beckoned! The band realised they had found their audience and built up a loyal following of up and coming parka clad fans from the newly formed Mod phenomenon that was sweeping the country… From 1979 to 1981 the band played their hearts out to packed venues.
In this period, the band released one cult status single on local ’ No Pap’ label which has now become quite a collectable single. Sadly the band imploded in 1981, Rob the main song writer ended up emigrating to downunder, Dave the drummer sadly died a few years ago from cancer and Guy, as we know, has been playing with Pink Floyd for the last 15 years.
This brilliant and over due release features both sides of the single, unreleased studio tracks and choice live tracks.
Unleashed on the public on Monday, 14th December, on limited edition of 1000 copies available exclusively through:
