The

ABRAM BANDS

Wigan

 

Abram is a small outlying district to be found on the eastern side of Wigan's border with Leigh in south Lancashire. Its recent history owes much to the industial revolution of the 19th Century. Cotton, coal and canals and a not inconsiderable piece of the action from the immence rise of the railway industries. Springs Branch Shed employed many rail worker's in fruitful addtion to full employment in the the mines and mills. High density housing stock prolifereated in back to back cobbled streets and sneaking inbetween the were silent running trolley buses and the rag and bonemans horses and carts.

 

  This urban backdrop was however was social normality to its resident proud and upright working-class citizens. in other words, the perfect breeding grounds for an accompaniment of fledging rock 'n roll music. Considering it's size the Abram district probably produced more bands to the square acre than any where else in Lankyland - apart from perhaps Liverpool?

 

  Up to the time of writing unfortunately little is known about the sixties bands featured here and any additional information will be more than welcome.
