Other Drummers

When drummer Malcolm Wright left the group in 1968 he was replaced by a number of different drummers whose names are uncertain. Names mentioned are Martin Harrison and Derek Cashin.

In the picture on the left can anybody help put a name to this drummer last on the right.

From Tony Coates

‘Hi Len , not Martin ,not Derek . there was another drummer for a short time. He arrived with the clothes he stood in, so we gave him some money sent him to reclothe, and he came back with a TROMBONE ? ? Mick Douglas may remember his name.I did’nt meet Derek until after I left the Hi Fi’s .’

The "Hi-Fi´s" from London did a hot show during the last week in "Bonanza" *.

The five London "rock´n´roll"-freaks made something happen that no other band before ever could: the dance-floor stayed empty!! But not because their music was too bad for dancing, no - the "Bonanza"-guests were so impressed by The "Hi-Fi’s" musically outstanding performance that they totally forgot to dance !

The "Hi-Fi´s" asked club-owner Helmut Rath if they could do something for an organisation called "Dortmunder Sorgen-Kinder"**, because they’ve heard about it.

A gig in Dortmund-city was cancelled, because there were no big amps available. at 3pm The "Hi-Fi´s" played  outside - not with their instruments but with a football vs. a "Bonanza"-team. for the "Sorgenkinder"


* Bonanza = name of the discotheque

** Sorgen-Kinder = charity-children, poor children, homeless children
