"Pete Oliver, Ian "Andy" Anderson and Ronnie Grundy. A brilliant band. Pete and Ronnie both had brilliant voices. My mate and old school mate, Mike Amatt, is a professional lead guitarist and Mike played guitar on their records. These lads were top class and it was a travesty they never hit the big time. One of the best acts from Clubland though. Saw their last ever gig at Pete's pub when they split up. The encore number was their version of The Beatles song "Taxman". The Beatles version was second rate after listening to these lads doing a "live" version of the number."

"Sweet Chariot were a three-piece band from Salford who used to play all the clubs in the north west. They were very friendly with The Walker Brothers when they where based in 60's Manchester."

"We used to see quite a lot them especially at Goose Green L C. Pete Oliver - the drummer is still performing in a tribute band to The Bee Gees in Benidorm up to October 2010. Pete seems to be a proper character he has been in: Phoenix Nights, Shameless, Emmerdale, Coronation Street etc."
