We all contributed to tracks in our own way. Anderson and Manning were the driving force, working on lyrics and comments all the time, agonising over the content, looking for interesting bridges and arrangements. Reay was retiscent about showing his songs (and still is) but could add an unusual chord or two, which kept him in the band. Hedgecock, the drummer, took the brunt of the jokes but added a good dollop of background impetus to many of our oddities. Almost three singers, almost four really. In today's market Anderson's quirky voice has a market, but his lack of confidence at hitting the notes meant Manning and Reay got most of the limelight onstage. We were the new, contemporary Beatles! At least in our school!!
