On the subject of instrumentals, has anyone got any info on the incredible one played by Mick Smith at Cleethorpes.

yes, I believe it's a group called 'Casio'

No, i'm sure Gareth's right. I'm sure I heard it was Wizards Sleeve. Tho that might have been the artist. He debuted it down the 100 club. It went down a storm at Cleethorpes. I heard he paid a fortune for it. Nice to know there's still great stuff left to be discovered after 30 years. Where the hell did you get 'Casio' from Lisa?! You're going mad! They were a terrible 70's electro band out of Philadelphia with crap repetitive beats.

Is it that backing track to Marva Lee (sounds a bit like Wizzard's Sleeve if you're actually wizzarding yourself) 'If You Can't Be True'. That's an acetate he paid a few bob for off JA-SB. It is heavy on the gorgonzola organ too. I'm sure the tanned one will fill us in when he returns from the Sierra Madre or wherever it is he's gone to.

It could have been Bobby Wells 'the Psychedelic Theme', that was the instrumental to his great 'Let's Cop A Groove' that was from the same stable. It's dead good actually, I've been meaning to play it for 15 years.

THE INSTRUMENTAL ACETATE I PLAYED AT CLEETHORPES/100 CLUB SATURDAY IS BY THE JIMMY BISHOP TRIO CALLED "A PART TIME LOVE". IT'S THE SAME BACKING TO MARVA LEE BUT WITHOUT THE SAX.
