HALF MOON
HALF MOON were founded in mid 1970s and featured many line ups. Originally, it was Peter ‘Lou’ Cheetham (vocals) , Jim Mould (drums) / Roger Harvey ( guitar) / Brian Mould (guitar) / Dave Tomlins (bass) / Dave Salmon ( keyboards) but the final line up was Rob Rushton ( vocals) / Roger Harvey ( guitar) / Dave Tomlins (bass) / Dave Salmon ( keyboards) / Chris Moyden (drums) / Brian Mould (guitar). Others members included a young and gifted Peter Bacanin, Phil Lenoir ( former drummer with Black Cat Bones ) etc.

The band did 2 BBC radio broadcasts and the music was mix of funk and rock.
These photos were taken at a performance at Baileys in Hanley and include Les Scott ( the former Sentinel journalist)
The band split up around 1977 ish
THE RICHMONDS
Line up was Alistair Campbell
Steve Salmon ( bass) / David Salmon ( Hammond organ) / Phil Greaves (guitar)/ Ian Broad (vocals)

Our main claim to fame was playing at the Cavern in Liverpool on 2 occasions (one was a double up where we played a set at the Cavern and then at Phoenix Club). When Ian Broad and myself visited Liverpool several years ago, we found our ‘brick ‘ in the Cavern Wall with Ra’s name on one, this proved that we played there !!!
THE PHASE 1969
These photos feature The Phase which was formed about 1969. The music was again covers with about 3 of our own. The music was pop and soul covers but featured more progressive rock . Hair started growing and we changed the name from Page 27 to The Phase, as we felt it was more ‘hip’ for the psychedelic times in the late 60s !!! We split up in 1971.

Line up was Derek Yeomans ( drums) / Reg Tooth ( guitar) / Peter Cooke (bass) / David Salmon (organ) / Ian Broad (vocals) / Ken Moore ( guitar and sax)

SANDIE SHAW AND THE STREAMLINERS
Sandie Shaw had a London based band called The Paramounts for her touring gigs, they were offered a recording contract and left Sandie, Jackie Trent who was friends with Miss Shaw offered to put a small touring band together for her from local boys in Stoke, they were, Ian Holding, Derek Probyn, Bill Honeyman and Tony Kaye, which after a few changes is the band in the photo, Dave Birkenhead, Glen Martin, Tony Kaye and John Askey. Sandie’s previous band put a single out called “A Whiter Shade of Pale” and changed their name to Procul Harem. When our original drummer Bill Honeyman left to join “The Ivy League” we advertised in the Melody Maker for a drummer, and eventually hired Glen Martin, who had been the drummer with “Hedgehoppers Anonymous” who also had the copyright on the name from Johnathan King, so when we were not working with Sandie we were Hedgehoppers. After some two years and two European tours with Sandie, I was still only 21, and frustrated with the cabaret scene, I was offered a job with a local Progressive Rock Band called “Toyshop” whose bass player Steve Nixon was leaving for personal reasons
