Thread Name: Shortwaveband (UK band)
Subject: RE: Shortwaveband (UK band)
From the book "Tapestry of Delights" I gather that, before the Shortwave Band, Harrison and Gordon were in a Merseyside band called Sticky George, a name which was later used for a Korgis album title. Presumably one or both had some later link with Bath University as the album (their second) you have come across was recorded there (as you can see !). In The Korgis they worked with some Stackridge people. There was a third SWB album on Pye in 1979 called simply "Shortwave" but I've never seen a copy, though I also own the first two. My "Hats" LP is on the Crescent label - maybe Avada reissued it ??? Stuart Gordon will be playing with Steve Tilston and Keith Warmington at the Rondo Theatre, Bath, on Sat 8th October.
