|Preface: Malcolm Tillier had a
lengthy career with several earlier bands. He joined Process (1969-1973)
with Pete Spencer (gtr) and myself [GG]. He was a very capable
drummer and we had a lot of fun in those years. (see Process)
Outsband history by Derek Hubble
I first played with Malcolm Tillier [who had joined the group on the 9th of August, 1975] [JC].
‘Outsband’ were fronted by vocalist Ron Smith (now deceased), who was good enough to be called a pub singer (out of tune and out of time on occasions) who also played a rhythm guitar. Apart from being the front man he had a lot of contacts and got a lot of work to keep the band busy. I played bass and sang either 1st harmony or occasionally lead vocal.
One of our lead guitarists was John Cade [who joined on the 19th of April, 1975][JC], with whom I had played for some time previously in a band called ‘The Nesters’.
He was an avid Shadows fan who learned and played everything as per recording and very well – (see YouTube).
I believe there was a keyboard player called Monty Shute [1946-2003] who also hailed from Surrey, but over time I lost touch with him.
Sadly Monty's son Mathew Shute (of Shute Tattoos, Carshalton, Sy.) has informed us of his demise.
Eventually Ron called it a day in Outsband and did its last gig on the 7th of June, 1977. We then played as Nectar from then on … first booking 11/6/77 [JC]
Malcolm Tillier moved on to join "The Casual Four" (1977 - 1981) fronted by an entrepreneurial music store owner - Nick Hatch.
