In-Sect (Chorlton)

Line-up included

  • Allan Jones - guitar/vocals
  • Roger Livesey - bass
  • Ray Gibson - drums
  • ?? - rhythm
  • David (Sam) Bartram - vocals

The group started life as THE FREEWAYS , 4 lads from the Chorlton cum Hardy area. 

We practised furiously and did a couple of gigs. The first one being November 1964 in the Chorlton British Legion. With the group names such as Beatles, Animals and Byrds
we decided to become THE IN-SECT. 

The rhythm guitarist left and was replaced by a lead singer with a fantastic soul voice (forgive failing memory but cannot remember his name!). We rehearsed in my mum’s front room every Thursday night and collected quite a following of neighbours listening. 

We played lots of gigs in the Manchester area, eg Cheadle Cricket Club and the Majestic Club in Deansgate where we played evenings and all nighters.
