This 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.

The pictures found in this article were retrieved from 35mm slides taken in 1973 at the Carshalton Social Club. A club which Process performed at many times. There were many other South London venues in the time the band was together, the mix of blues, pop, 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.
Sadly no recordings of the band exist, as far we know..
