HUMBUG

 Edward John Concern

       Wigan         

 

 

 George Monks: Lead Vocal. Dave Lawson: Drums. Geoff Shepard: Guitar.

Malc’ Mather: Guitar. Garry Hughes: Bass

 

In 1973 Kevin Gough left Edward John Concern to start a family and the group disbanded. This was a sad moment but the group moved on.

 

Changes aplenty..

  Re-forming later with a new guitar player, Malc Mather, who had worked with Bolton band Pendulum for many years. Malc' had a raunchy, more heavy sound that changed the way that the group would work. EJC had gone into the lighter side of rock. Soul and Tamla was moved to one side for a spell. The group was changing. Dave Lawson did a ten minute drum solo using his big double bassdrum kit and Malc would end the show with a Jimi Hendrix version of Star Spangled Banner, played through a cool Marshall 200 watt stack. It was loud. 

 

Bits on show?

Playing at The Bier Keller in King Street, Wigan one night and I remember a guy swinging from the light standards like Tarzan, drunk as a skunk with all his bits on show.. what a place! 

 

A voyage to everywhere UK..

 Humbug were contracted to Leyland Enterprises  - L. E. Agency - and began on a voyage to everywhere UK. Playing everything from Workingmens Clubs to Private Girl's School's and Holiday Parks. Working 6˝ days a week - every other Wednesday off. Crikey it was horrendous. We worked The Riverside Club Wigan Rugby League Club every Tuesday and Thursday nights after Copper Kettle threw in the towel.. never quite sure if they did us a favour or not!

 

Good memories.. 

 Good memories though of the Siloth Lido and Distington, Egremont and many other West Cumbrian venues. I think these was regular venues for L.E. Agency groups; Rainbow Cottage, Winston, Copper Kettle etc.
