    Can anyone tell me the local band members of Concrete Parachute? I think my dad Ian Meyer was the bassist for the group. Any info or photographs would be great.

    • Hi Samantha,
      An article in the Bucks Advertiser on 11 July 1968 titled “Concrete Parachute bites the dust” list the mambers as:
      Ian Myer (bass guitar), Robert Woods (lead guitar), James Hopkins (trumpet), Jimmy Hemmings (drums), Ken Vincent (vocals) and Dave Hillsden (saxophone).
      Spellings as shown in the article!
      I have added the article to the 1968 Social Club page.

    Brilliant, thank you. Do you know if they played BAH at all. He was also in a band called Arandorius (not sure is spelling is correct) Life.

    • Brian zGibson

      Yes they did play at The BAH

  3. I haven’t seen any listing of appearances at the BAH – though that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen! I have an article that shows Concete Parachute was the new name of the Big O Flap Band – changing the name and a new stage act incorporating more rock and roll music.
