Brumbeat and Brumbeat Era Autographs

These incredible photos were sent to me by Steve Williams who found this autograph book amongst his late brothers belongings.

We can clearly make out Brumbeat legends Brumbeat’s autographs, a band called Sounds Inc plus individual autographs for Karl Barton and others.

Thanks to Steve for sending these into the archive and I’d love to hear from people who recognise the autographs and can give us some more info on Sounds Inc and the individual signers.

Batmans Wonderboys

Bri-Dar has written in with the following:

Hi, I hope you are keeping well. I only came across you by accident while on line and the Midland beat brought back memories of the Sixties. I noticed you left out Batmans Wonderboys who I  happen to know of.

They made the Midland Beat cover during the Sixties.

They recorded The Second City which you can get on You tube . Type in BRI – DAR Then Second City.

I hope this info is of some intrest to you
Best Wishes  BRI РDAR
