Just to say that I was the keyboard player for Hibi Yaki, and still have a few mint copies of the album, which came out in 1984. The album was a compilation of tracks from demo tapes sent in by hundreds of bands, singers, etc, of which the 10 "best" were selected. As far as I know all the bands returned to obscurity soon afterwards.John
I wasn't in any of the bands, but somehow ended up here and would like to say; Mabel O'Deadly, you have the best stage-name/nick-name/real-name in the world. Consider my hat well and truly doffed. Where are you now?
And I was the vocalist with The Howdy Boys. It didn't help that the recording used was from the demo cassette I sent in.
