THE ANSWERS

Bolton

 

 Tom Casey: Lead Vocal-Drums-Guitar. Dennis Newman: Bass Guitar. Brian Gibbs: Lead Guitar.

 

The Answers brick in the Cavern Wall of Fame - Liverpool

 

 "This lot were absolutely fantastic." 

"A three piece with as much punch as you could ever imagine. Dennis had a Fender Jazz? Bass that he must have attacked with a chainsaw, couldn’t tell what make it was in the end, but crikey could he play it, with a Vox Supreme amp and 2 x 18” bass bins with tweeters.  Tweeters !!!! on a bass cab - the sound was amazing. He played a lot by hitting the fretboard with his fingers. I consider him to be the best bass player I have ever seen, Ever!!.  Seriously, Mark King of Level 42 could not have touched him. He used to wear hot pants.

 

Top Of The Pops..

   Brian went on to join Rainbow Cottage, and did some recordings down at William Leyland's 

place in Hindley. He was so gentle in the way he played and sung, but he was very special. I think he might have written the song 'Seagull' which they played on Top of The Pops -Live - I believe. I think I was there when they mastered it, I don’t know how or why?"

Garry Hughes: May 2010.

 

  "Just a bit of info about my bass set up. I just loved the sound of a Fender Jazz, but couldn’t get it from anything you could buy at the time. After a lot of experimenting, and dozens of burnt out tweeters, we found some old Canadian army telephone speakers in a junk shop in Oldham - there is a point to all this. By pure accident, and a bunch of capacitors, they became mega powerful re-entrant midrange horns, which were chromed and bolted onto a pair of home made 18" cabs that needed a fork truck to lift. Driven by a Vox Supreme amp, we had the deep bass, and the top end zing that the Jazz did so well. After that it sort of ‘played me’, and I just hung on. Now and again we got it together, Tom, running like a machine on his kit, rock steady and powerful, Brian on fire and giving me great cues for bass riffs. Anyone who never played in a small band could never know the cocaine hit of that experience. Brothers in Arms, Spoiled for life.

Dennis Newman: August 2010
