I remember the poets ..and if I also remember right they made the top twenty,which in them days,was no mean feat,I went to see them at the Flamingo in Cardonald,which was a dance venue .. only problem that night was there was no chance to dance .. it was standing room only ..I had a good friend from Nitshill who was lead guitarist with a group called "The Kismets" ..Who played regularly at the "Big Co" in Paisley..to listen to thier sounds live was indeed a priveledge .. I followed the band for years only to be kidnapped by my wife who still has me tied in knots tae this day ..some lovely posts folks ..brings back some memories ..(sigh) ..Tx .. wink.gif

You're teasing us group fanatics. Who was in The Kismets and what and exactly where was the "Big Co"? Thanks for your memories.

As an ex member of 'the House of Lords' ..what no mention yet sad.gif best band at the time was the Blues Council, remember them blowing Georgie Fame & his BF's away...think it was at the old concert hall. Frankie Miller of course our band alternated with the Deljaks early 60's at the Castlemilk community centre. also Alex Harvey's BSS @ the all nighter club top flr(above Forbes the music shop) Leslie Harvey was with the 'Silhouettes' at that gig
also the Pathfinders...sorry to see the main man has passed away!
Somebody should try and pull whats left of the groups and hold a reunion ...ahhh dream on.....and to finish who remembers the Empire Cafe? across from McCormacks when all the bands (incl myself! ) used to fire up in 'poser' mode and swan about on Saturdays

Re: Christian...The answer to everything.

I remember owning an LP with this song on it, pretty sure it was just called "Christian"
If anyone still has this album i'd appreciate it if they could let me know and we could try and stick it onto cd.
I just love that song and it's pretty impossible to get

Anyone remember the Bay City Rollers, Nazareth etc from the Big O in East Kilbride

My favourite were Beggars Opera who played regularly at Burns Howff. I went to see them every Sat afternoon, then went to the Electric Gardens at night to watch Tiger Tim glide on stage with his black cloak.

I wasn't a big fan of Beggars Opera but my friends were. My girlfriend's pal went out with Ricky Gardner. This would be 1970/71. Was Tiger at the Electric Gardens then? The first time I saw Tiger was at Clouds up above The Green's Playhouse . I'm sure he was in a Frog's suit. And I mean a green costume not a wet suit as worn by a frogman.

You had to get in the Burn's Howff early (6:30) if you wanted a seat to see the band. I rember seeing trays of pint beer glasses 2/3rds full sitting on the bar which they topped up jsut before the waitresses carried them over to your table. Another aquaintance of mine Cliff Hanley jr or Clifford as he was known to his writer dad, painted the illustrations at the Howff. Young Cliff (we were all young then) also played in bands one called the Motels or the Models or something.

Yes Frank, Tiger Tim was at "The Gardens" then, much to my surprise when I think back too. You are right when you say 1971. I was 17 then, plastered in make up trying to look older so as I'd get in to the venue and served at the bar. Wish I looked 17 now. I loved clouds too, going up there in the elevator. Saw loads of bands in Greens Playhouse too, T-Rex, Family, Sailor, to name some.

May, are you sure the "Fireflies" were Glaswegians? I remember seeing them probably in 1966 maybe a year or two later in Sunderland! They were in the "Crowtree" in Sunderland with the Quandowns... both groups had just returned from Hamburg.. I went specifically because an old school pal of mine was in the "fireflies" as drummer!

There were probably more than one set of Fireflies and like the Beatles probably both groups were thinking of a name similar to The Crickets.

I think there's a photo here and a wee bit of a story.

Hi to all, thanks for the story on Chris Mclure. My husband Iain went to school (Bellahouston) at the same time as him and Andy Roxborough. He remembers Chris being the goalie and Andy being the centre forward, while Iain played whatever position they would let him LOL.

I have to agree with Linky on this one, the best band at the time, for me, was the Blues Council.
