Geoff Longbar

Geoff has been a stalwart of ska since he first hatched out of a can of Baked Beans. In his youth he decided that to fit in with the rest of the beans he would shave his head, previously supporting a large beehive, and put on a pair of boots, which has mother had finally finished knitting.

In 1792 Geoff, playing on a lute, discovered that if he lied about being out of time with the rest of the band, but said he was playing on the offbeat, could get away with the whole concept of practicing.

Theres is not much that Mr Massacre, as he likes to be known, doesn’t know about holes in socks. Over a period of seventeen years he has climbed both in and out of 347 individual pairs. In a moment of lucidity he quickly explained ‘I’m looking for the ultimate off beat’.

Peter Leek

I’m 63 year old, full time steering wheel manager with the Hotel Scania dept. and part time wanna-be DJ. I’ve been into music since the mid 60’s, although I missed out on the Twisted Wheel, I did manage a few trips to the Torch. Brownhills Youth Club opened me up to Soul and Mod music and then progressing onto Reggae.

My love in music is Northern Soul, Ska and Mod 60’s sounds and after recently returning to the decks, I have played at a few local venue’s and a couple of charity events further afield.
