BIG TOM 

&

THE COLORADOS

Wigan

 

Tom Pownall: Lead Vocal. Steve Lewis: Guitar. Kenny Fillingham: Guitar.

Slim Jim: Bass. Jimmy 'Spider' Kelly: Drums.

 

  These lads were probably the best country music band around Wigan and district in the early eighties. They were very popular, commanding a full club wherever they appeared. Cracking country stuff that Big Tom could put over great.

 

  I can remember 'Bar Stool Mountain' and 'American Trilogy'. Songs in which both Kenny and Steve produced fantastic guitar sounds together. They were superbly supported with solid bass and drums from Slim and Spider. Spider passed away about five years ago with Big Tom following in the last twelve months.

 

The group went on to form Hocus Pocus and took on many forms of popular music to play until just recently.

Garry Hughes: May 2010
