1 Off

Another in the series of recordings made of school bands by Ron Abbott in glorious mono on his reel-to-reel tape recorder has now been published to the web.

This time the band is 1 Off. I don’t know much about this band yet, except that Martin Brooks and John Callaghan were members. One announcement on the recording refers to it being about a year since John Lennon was murdered and that was December 1980.

Presumably the recording is made at BGS since Richard Anderson can be heard at various points and at the end instructs the audience to help tidy up the room.

Any more information would be very gratefully received. You can read the scant OBA Wiki article or go straight to YouTube to listen to 1 Off.
