"I used to love Tynfoil many moons ago. 

I was about 14 at the time and I loved the lead singer Alan Bentham. Then one day my dad said we were going out for tea to his friends house I didnt know who he was. Anyway, when we got there we were having a chat and who should walk in but Alan. I thought I,d died and gone to heaven. I couldn't eat my tea properly because I was that gobsmacked. Needless to say he was just like any normal person. I see Malcolm Green quite a bit because he still sings in the clubs with Amore duo. My friend and I use to go to the Monaco Ballroom at Hindley but because we were underage I use to tell my dad I was going to The Beachcomber in Wigan. Many times we had to run for the last bus. I was silly enough to think my dad didn't know but he must have."
