Since the unearthing of thirty odd Bison tapes, interest in Sixela times has resurged. Here are a couple of snaps. One from Merton Abbey Mills Bandstand, and one from a gig out at The Space, which was somewhere in London I can’t remember. Will inform. However it was canny good and we wore funny stuff, and Jon played the cream epi and Hats had the Warwick wood. All was good. I was in a Kimono with pink trim playing a red epi SG tuned CGDAEG or maybe AEBF#C#E , depending on the period. It never stayed in tune anyway.
