||The Process - one night in 1973|
|George Gillam (1973)
Sondyne Leslie Cab.
page is dedicated to "Process" (1969-1973)
Although formed from the "Yo-Yo band" with Bill Bucknall (bass), Malcolm Tillier (drums) and
George Gillam (organ/guitar). The problem was to find a suitable guitarist to enhance the bands reputation and musical abilities The outgoing guitarist at the time was a school friend Terry Fisk. Who although a good guitarist he was more at home with country music than the blues or rock influences of the other three. After several auditions and the use of deputising guitarists.
A young man from Brixton appeared on the scene and transformed the sound. This replacement circa 1969/70 was Peter Spencer. When Pete joined the band we considered a change of name would also be appropriate and "The Process" was born.

times. There were many other South

rock & roll and comedy songs
had the audiences both amused and rocking on the dance floor. the
bands antic's both on and of stage made it a fun time. See bottom right. These were 5 good years.
