Mystery Demo

Where are they now?

Please get in touch if you have any information
about the music or the musicians

Clearing out some old tapes, we came across our first ever 'demo' cassette, recorded sometime in the 1980's in Todmorden, Lancs.

Andy was the composer on vocals, keyboards & guitar...

Pat was the drummer...


but I don't remember their surnames... there were one or two others; all worked at ICL, West Gorton, Manchester.

Recording was over a long weekend in the dining room of our old Victorian house, with an umbilical of assorted mic & foldback cables across the hallway to the lounge, feeding a home-made 8-track mixer, bouncing tracks between two stereo tape recorders.

It was a bit of a squeeze with mic stands, guitar amp, speakers, a crappy old electric keyboard, a not-so-crappy Moog Taurus (wish I'd hung on to it now), Pat's drum kit in the corner, and...
that haunting piano (the old 'drawing-pins in the hammers' trick!) mp3
