THE HURGS

Haydock

Blind Eye

 

Brian Roberts: Lead Guitar. Jacky Bond: Harmonica - Lead Vocal. 

John Gwilliam: Drums. Graham Huggett: Bass Guitar.

 

I now live in Australia I was in The Hurgs for a number of years up to and around 1966. We changed line-ups and played under the name of Blind Eye. I finished with the group 26 January 1969 at Manchester University on a gig with Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band.

 


 

It was many years ago and memory is little vague but it was a fantastic time, that unfortunately was taken for granted at that time. Jacky Bond is still playing gigs around St Helens area.

 

 

"The Hurgs were a great R&B band from Haydock and played often at Room At The Top on Sundays. Seriously one of the best local bands I've seen. They had good kit too and Gretch guitars!"

Norman Eastham: October 2010

 

"I would just like to second Norman's praise of The Hurgs. I watched them perform at the RATT many times and they really were superb - one of the best R & B groups I ever saw! They had a fantastic harmonica player, even doing the Cyril Davis classic Countryline Special! Other songs I remember were 'Preachin' The Blues' and 'Louisiana Red'.
 
"If I carry on like this - I'll remember what the 39 steps were? The Hurgs - loved-em."
Mitch Mitchinson: October 2010
