Mike Denham made a few early, though fruitless attempts to become a bandleader. His very first band was beset by opposition from his peers who objected to being told which chords to follow ...

As he grew somewhat older and wiser, he realised that he had a particular talent for management, and so he signed up a group of his grandmother's friends with the intention of hitting the charts - maybe even achieving his lifetime ambition of appearing on Six-Five Special ... but the band folded after his lead singer mislaid her false teeth on their first gig and left the venue in tears ...

Later, his penchant for carefully coordinated band uniform took over, and he formed a nattily-dressed ensemble which had every chance of making it during the Swinging Sixties - until it was discovered that one member of the band had non-matching buttons on his shirt and another regularly sported the wrong colour socks, and Mike had to fire them all ...

So it was back to the drawing board until one day ...

... he suddenly remembered that he and a few friends had actually done a couple of gigs together - one in 1987 and another in 1988! Why not call a meeting, dream up a catchy name, call it a band - and get even more than one gig per year?! ...
