Innocent Bystanders On Pameline - Who Were They?

Recommended Posts

The current 'instrumental' thread got me thinking about who the Innocent Bystanders were.

 

On one side of this disc is the iconic Detroit instrumental 'Frantic Escape'. However, the other side is a funky vocal number called 'Crime (Doesn't Pay)'.

 

The vocals sure remind me of someone, but I can't pin it down, and it got me thinking who were the Innocent Bystanders?

 

Hopefully someone on here will know - so thanks in advance for any info  :thumbsup:

 

Cheers

Anyone got any idea who the singers were please?

 

Found a YouTube clip  :thumbsup:

 

Bit of a "War" type thing going on - huhh! 

 

The demo only has this track unfortunately - not "Frantic Escape" on it.

 

Cheers

Going by memory the Carstairs was on in Blackpool and a friend of mine picked them up from a London airport , on the way to Blackpool he brought them to my house for a cup of tea , me and Cleavland was talking soul when he told me they was the Inocent Bystandres i told him i had Frantic Escape on Atlantic records he said it was not possible has he never recorded for Atlantic so i looked for my copy and the Pameline demo of Crime Doesnt Pay he said on his return to the States he would see a solicitor to ask for royalties, before he left he sighned both copys and if you would like to see i would be happy to show you .

Hope this helps

What was the rest of the group on Crime Doesn't Pay?  I can believe Cleveland Horne singing on it (as he moved about from what I've read) but the whole of the Carstairs Group?  What was the Carstairs line up?

Sorry cant remember it was Kev Thomas ,Rob Thomas younger brother who picked them up from the Airport,I think they stayed at his house in Draycott Derbyshire for the night before carrying on to Blackpool the next day.One of the two brothers may remember.
