Anybody remember this Stamford band from the sixties. They went to no 3 in the charts with 'Yesterday has Gone' in the Summer of '68. I believe the lead singer was Terry Rice Milton or Terry Bull to his mates, and i think he or some of the band worked at Palmers in town as electricians.
Kate:  Thanks for that Nigel.  We had a posting on the site from someone who worked at Palmers in the 60s.  I will have a look through and see if I can trace it.  Anyone else remember Cupid's Inspiration?

Cupid's Inspiration Album Cover (4)
by kind permission of Terry Rice-Milton

     Wow! The name Terry Bull brings back a load of memories, albeit somewhat fragmented with the passage of time.
     I first became acquainted with Terry and some of his friends about 1960.I believe they were at Stamford school at this time. (Clean cut youths). Terry was very keen on starting up a rock band. I could see that he liked to sing; he also had a small drum set if I remember rightly. I was a guitar player of sorts and for a while used to jam at his or one of his friends houses. After a short time my association with them faded.
     By about 1962 Terry did have his band. I recall their equipment was hauled around in an old Bedford van (the kind with sliding doors). The name of the band is a bit vague now but I think it was "The Blue Tones" then switched to "The Blue Notes" a bit later. The lead guitar at the time had his original way of playing, certainly bluesy. If I remember rightly there were four members in the group. Terry (singer), lead guitar, rythm guitar and drummer. No bass! (The "Palmers" day job connection is valid at least for one or more of the members).
     Some of the equipment they were using was fairly basic, but that was normal for bands starting out.
I recall the lead guitar was a custom item, light green in colour, accoustic cutaway with two D'Armond black pickups fitted. A Watkins "Copy Cat" continuous tape loop echo chamber was used. The rhythm guitar was a thin body semi-acoustic model by "Kay". That's all I recall.
     One of the bands regular venues was the "London Inn" where they were always well received as being one of Stamford's own. Two tunes they played regularly were:"Money" The best things in life are free etc etc. Also "Love Potion Number Nine". The band played in quite an original manner but generally bands were expected to follow a more clone like way of performing this may have been a bit of an impediment at first. I saw the band performing in Bourne, Ryhall and at "Mr. Green's" dance club that was located at the meeting of Wharf and St Mary's streets. This incidentally was a very popular place to go dancing and was something new to Stamford.Mr Green brought in well-known bands to perform. Terry and his band were the support group for "Lulu and the Luvers"on a one night stand.
     One day the lead guitarist quit and left the band struggling. One night in the "London" they tried to get me on stage to do some backup but I was too shy, they even brought a guitar stretching its cord to the limit over to where I was seated to try and persuade me to play. A day or two later I was interviewed by Terry and the rhythm player with regards to joining the group. I remember Terry saying it was a great opportunity for me as he intended to go far. Coincidently the same week I received a job offer from Marconi near London so I was torn between the two. I decided to go with the Marconi offer. I recall Terry saying that I was making the big mistake! Ah well.
     That was the last contact I had with these fellows as I quit Stamford for good a few days later.
     I did hear rumours that the group had done the "Hamburg Germany" tour as was customary in those days for emerging groups.
     I was interested in reading that Terry did indeed make it fairly big with a top ten hit. I read on various internet sites that his song is considered a classic and still sought after by collectors found a picture of the record cover and was able to recognize Terry but I do not think the others were any of the original Stamford chaps. From what I read Terry Rice Milton left the group Cupids Desire in 1970 but the group itself continued until not too long ago. Wonder what happened to Terry Bull?
Kate:  I found that fascinating David.  What a difficult decision you had to make.  I'm glad you have found a link into your past through Stamford Memories Gateway.  I am sure other people will post to this topic and we will hear more. I checked out the ratings for their songs and found 2.  My World which went in the charts on 5/10/68 at 33 Av. Position 40 (8 weeks) and Yesterday Has Gone 22./06/68 No. 4 Av. 20 11 weeks.

I'm thinking that the David in question is Dave Leishman who lived at Ryhall just outside of Stamford and my recollection is that he did actually perform a few 'gigs' with us. Often wondered what happened to him. Please correct me if the above is wrong. Or was it Dave Tyler who went off to join the R.A.F?
I was at Allis-Chalmers in those early days. Not sure about the 'go far' quote being attributed to me though, I was always very shy and hid behind a giant Reslo microphone on a stand that was only marginally skinnier than me.
Would love to hear what David got up to after leaving Stamford.
By the way it was The Blue Sounds! Then The Loose Ends,then The Ends,The Age Of Consent, Age with T.Rice-Milton (NOT an O.A.P treatment....or was it?)
Just about all the other details are correct.
I would love to clear up the which David mystery.
Kate:Well, hello Terry!  So glad you saw the posting re Cupids Inspiration.  I was chatting in Stamford Museum last week and the girl in there was saying "oh yes, I remember Cupids Inspiration" - so you still have a following!  I am sure you have lots of memories relating to Stamford that you might be persuaded to send to the forum for others to enjoy?  I will email David to tell him that you have posted the above and hopefully he will send one back.  I do so like it when we get a connection like this.  Thanks again.

Just caught your mail from Terry Bull 'as was', if anyone who has heard of Cupids Inspiration and their music, get on to YouTube and see Terry, Jim Laughton etc and appreciate what a good band with a good singer is really about. I haven't seen Terry for a few years now, but last time I saw him he was the same lad I knew around town.
I see he admits to being nervous, believe me, he was almost physically sick and had to be pushed on stage at times, but when he was on, brilliant! I must also give a word about Jim Laughton, good player, super cool on stage, He's still around town.
Anyway YOU TUBE watch them, great.

It is terrific to have so many pleasant things said about Cupid's and myself. Reading them helps bring it all back. They were great times spent around some wonderful people, musicians and audiences alike. Please say a great big Hello to them all, there should be at least 5 out there, somewhere.
Please tell Angela Martin to get in touch we would to love hear from her. They helped me celebrate the arrival of our son, Julian.
Kate: Thanks for that Terry.  I am sending your email address to Angela Martin and alerting her to your reply - hopefully she will be getting in touch.

Wow - does this bring back memories! I saw The Ends play at a "Beat Group" contest in Langham (near Oakham) in summer 1965. They won the contest, and graciously shared the prize with a band called the Tollgates, who were runners up. I remember that each band had to play a ballad, a beat number and an instrumental. The instrumental they did was "Lullaby in Birdland". I wonder if Terry can recall what the other 2 numbers were? The drummer (was it Roger Peck?) had a bass drum with a hole ripped in the front, patched up with sticky tape - very impressive! I think lead guitar (Wyndham George?) was playing a Kay Jazz (also used by Eric Clapton)? The Pythons were also on the bill (from Glaston). Their instrumental was "The Rise and Fall of Flingle Bunt". I was at school with Jimmy Gray, the brother of Roger Gray, the later drummer when The Ends became Cupids Inspiration. They were a great band - I always remember their spot on the Simon Dee show when the mike went dead in the first chorus - I bet Terry enjoyed that!
Kate:  more memories  needed of Cupids Inspiration! Thanks Neil.

I hadn't been fortunate enough to ever see Cupids Inspiration so I googled and got a clip on the following link,RNWE:2006-29,RNWE:en&q=cupids+inspiration

Cut and paste this into your address box and you too can watch Cupids Inspiration!  Who is the singer?  Is that Terry?  He's very good, and very handsome!  How did I miss out?

Well all this certainly brings back memories.  My friend (Annette) and I met Terry and Jim at Grantham College (when they were the Blue Sounds) and we had a few dates.  They used to collect us from Colsterworth in their van, previously mentioned, if I remember correctly Ladies on one door and Gents on the other, and footprints in paint across the top.  I remember my father demanding that we left immediately so the neighbours wouldn't see it!!

Anyway my street cred has increased with my grandchildren, I've told them for years I was a groupy and now they have seen the clip of Terry singing 'Yesterday has Gone' they really believe it.  However, they are not impressed that I was around when black and white was on the go!

By the time the Blue Sounds became Cupids Inspiration I was married and living in Glasgow.  Having spotted them (I think including Jim) on Top of the Pops I wrote to Terry, and got a reply saying they were coming to Glasgow, but for various reasons we didn't manage to meet up.  

It's really strange because I mentioned Terry and the song to someone recently, who went on line and came back to me saying what an outstanding voice he had. I hope he is still using that incredible voice and is still the nice guy I knew.

Bye for now Lyn

You were one of my favourite groups in my early teens, an honour indeed as I was really into underground! To me you were the intelligent side of british pop music of the day. I lost your album many years ago, but I am going to get it again on CD. Only 5? From the viewings of Yesterday has Gone on Youtube, theres many more than 5 people out there who remember you with fondness, rock on!

Hi-Terry, last time I saw you was at Burghley Golf Club with your sister are you still sorting out cruises? Its a long time ago when I would walk past your back yard in my "Teddy Boy Gear" (the good old black path) and see yourself/brother & sister.  nice to read all the old memories of Cupids Insperation, wonder if you remember the old skiffle groups in the town before rock & roll started? in 1954 everthing changed, Bill Hayley, Elvis, Little Richard,Jerry Lee Lewis, that was my wild years, the London Inn, The Green Man, & the old Drill Hall would be full of all the locals. great days, hope you & family are all OK take care hope to see you in Town sometime.

Dear Kate,
I am sitting at the desk in tears! I have just read the recent comments about Jim, Cupid's and myself. (I have not visited the site for a while and I was blown away). The pleasure they bring is up there with the 'buzz' we got from being on stage and performing.and that is some 'buzz', believe me.
Terry Rice-Milton.
Kate: Hi Terry.  So nice to get a "virtual" pat on the head!  You are a very popular guy and your music has such a lasting quality.  Can't think why you didn't become "big time"

Congratulations! T Rice Milton and Cupids Inspiration. You are, as of today, right up in the Hit Parade again after all these years. In fact you are number one with Local Characters coming in at number two.
  Thanks must go to Nigel Cross for creating this topic. Little did he know the interest he would generate and all those "Blast From The Past" memories that would be rekindled. Funny that we did not hear from him again.
Dave Leishman.Kate:  well spotted Dave.  Yes, there is great interest and where has Nigel Cross got to?

Hi Terry,
Yesterday is being played loads on Smooth Fm currently..hope your seeing some royalties. I was 10 when your song was a hit and it has been a landmark song and performance for me ever since...your voice is truly stunning..very much your own sound, but of which Levi Stubbs and Scott Walker would have been proud. I don't know of another performance with the same unashamed drama to has a kind of French dramatic torch feel which is so special,and which i have pursued with my own work since.
Respect to you and I hope music is still part of your life.
Andy Quinn

Hi Kate
Tell Tor to go onto YouTube. there are several vid's of Cupids, but tell him to get the earlier ones with T Rice Milton(Terry Bull) brilliant voice. Not forgetting Jim Laughton.
Kate: Thanks Syd.  Hope Tor will pickup your message - if he returns to the website.  I saw the YOUTube vid and agree it was sogood.

Hi Clem,
Thanks for reminding me of the good old, bad old days!
My time was more the 60s, although I do recall the Teddy Boy era,( we talked about it when I saw you at my sister's anniversary 'do' at the Golf club). I was still in short pants! Actually, they were probably our Trevor's 'Long' trousers. Yeah, I got the 'hand me downs' even though I was growing faster than him! He stopped at just under 6ft I careered on to about 6ft2in. That's where the inferiority complex came from, walking in his shadow. Only joking, I think.
In the 60s, when we  were 'strutting our stuff' musically ( I use the term loosely) it was more your 'mods' and 'rockers'.
I borrowed Trevor's Parka when I wasn't out in a borrowed leather 'biker' jacket ,depending on which 'sect' I was out to impress on the day.  Great times!!

Hi Andy

Once again I have been 'blown away'!
Your appreciation of what we put into a performance pleases me no end.The song is so good that it demanded and brought more out of us as performers. Hence the old saying - You are only as good as the song you are singing! (We never wrote any to come near Yesterday Has Gone).
Wish we'd had a couple more like it! MInd you, the follow ups -'My World' and 'The Sad Thing' came very close.
I had a feeling that I have been in the company of Andy Quinn, your name 'rang a bell'. Please get in touch.

Hi Terry, thought I would tell you saw Jim walking his dog down the meadows, I asked him about all the "royalties" you guy's should be getting? we had a great chat about the old day's, as you may know Jim worked for me when we had the electrical contracting business, have to say I remember watching "Top of the Pops" on the TV when your guy's performed, I was about to get married at the time, you may remember my best man "Chas Rawlings" I think he lived next door to you at one time? I know Dennis Moor lived close with Mrs Everard, long time ago & my memory is not what it used to be, anyway Terry it's great to see all the credits you are receiving, take care & sent Jim his share of the "royalties?

Cupids Inspiration- anyone know how the name came about? I still have the 2 singles in my old record collection. Yesterday has Gone and My World. They were released on NEMS record label and produced by Jimmy Duncan. B sides were Dream and Everything is meant to be. and still in their original sleeves. Thats 40 years ago!

Hi Janet,

The name came from Jimmy Duncan the boys accept no responsibility whatsoever! It was all to do with the 'smaltzy' lu-r-v-e theme. Well that is my storyand I shall be sticking to it.

Hi Terry, - Have just heard "Yesterday has Gone" (how true!) on Radio 2 and it brings back such memories. I don't know if you may remember me but I lived in Langham and first met "The Ends" when the band played in that "Beat Concert" and won. It was the one and only night that the village came to life!!  Geoff and I kept in touch for a few years and when you played locally in Oakham, Luffenham etc. (Do you recall playing at Manton village hall one night!!? What a dump) I used to come over to meet up at the dances.

Last time I saw the band you were at Melton along with the Four Pennies.

I'm glad you are ok. Do you happen to know how Geoff is? If you're in touch with him - just say hello from me please.

Love Deborah

Hi Deborah,
Yes I do remember you, very well. We enjoyed some great times around Langham, including the 'Beat Contest' which was held at the home of Ruddles Ales. I had to sing bending forwards, because even though the room had a low ceiling we actually performed on a stage. Great times, fabulous memories - thanks for the reminder.
Geof would seem to be ok, he is living in France, comes over here to work occasionally. Jim has been in touch because Cupid's are coming out on a compilation album of 'live' sessions soon and he had to consent to it. More soon.

Wiv luv.

Once again I am so pleased that this thread has gained the interest it has.

Hi All
Amazed to find this All our Yesterdays site! At school with Terry and played guitar in early 60s in a  Stamford School band with Pete Liddle (went to Cambridge Uni and ended up with the Boston Crabs) Graham Robinson and late John Cockin (went to Royal Academy) Self to Med School. Seem to remember working in vacations with their drummer ( ? Something Peck ) in Woolworths and Jim Laughton (?) was the guy we all looked up to for playing competence. There's a nice EP cover ( Singapore only ?) showing the band posed outside restaurant opposite the London Inn - name escapes me. Could post it. Chris Jarvis
Kate:  Hi Chris.  Join the fans!  Write some more detail of this if you have time - as not knowing the group at the time I need a bit more explanation.  Others more closely involved will probably find it easy to follow the bits you outline for us.  Thanks again.  Keep following the story.  Every bit helps to jog memories.

Just came across this forum after Googling Terry's name!  

My only connection with Stamford is that my stepson lived there for a couple of years when he was at the nearby airbase(he is in the RAF) and my wife and I visited him for a few days.

However one of my favourite records from 1968, the year I left school, was "Yesterday Has Gone".  I tried to get hold of the original track on CD for ages as the only one I had was one of these re-recorded versions on a budget CD.  Eventually I got hold of a Russian release on CD of the "Yesterday Has Gone" album from the music site GEMM. It contains 18 tracks released between 1968 and 1970 for the CBS and Bell labels and has some decent sleeve notes too. Although there were only ever two hits there are some really good tracks such as "Brown Eyed Woman" "Blue Zero" "Dream" "Everything is Meant to be" and "The Sad Thing"

Every time I listen to Dale Winton's Pick of the Pops I hear the instrumental excerpt from "My World" which Dale plays between tracks.
I think Terry has a fantastic voice and it reminds me a bit of Gary Puckett though much stronger.

It is good to know that Nigel is keeping an eye on his 'baby', to see that it does not get out of hand, or what? - He has created a 'Monster'!   I think that he really started something good but then I would say that wouldn't I?  Thank you Nigel.
As for Mr. Jarvis - We have 'bumped' in to each other over the years, early on when he was doing his 'Med' training and more recently at School Reunions and of course I remember all the lads he speaks of. By the way, that would be Tony Peck, the Drummer. Jim and I went to His 50th, about 10 years back, he was playing with a 'C and W' band at the time.
Good 'ole Brian Mathew he and David from Solihull show impeccable taste!
I'd better go now, I may have said too much already.

Sorry, I do not mean to monopolise but I completely forgot to thank Iain for all of those lovely things he said. Good to think Cupid's might have helped to melt the ice a bit during the Cold War with the Russians! - Who am I kidding? - Only myself, I guess. - Iain's copy would have been a more recent issue, from round about the mid-90s.
Anyway, thanks again.

I've just checked my Russian cd, it shows the dates 1969 and 2000 and was issued on Projector Music Series. The cd cover is the same photo as on the original album with a Projector logo printed on top and the last 6 tracks are described as bonus tracks.  The sleeve notes and track titles are all in English and there is a little Russian writing in the smaller print.  I remember when it came in the post it was wrapped in brown paper and tied with string!
Great to hear from you Terry!

Hello Terry,

Would be great if you could put some life into the wikipedia entry for Cupid,

I rediscovered your songs, as you've probably seen on youtube, great appreciation.

Just wondering what happened after the success with inspiration

Thanks again

I wondered if anyone out there had a copy of the LP they might wish to part with for a reasonable price?
After giving it a listen I will prob give it to the Museum for posterity!

Hi Terry i used to deliver evening papers for Mrs Johnson (can't remember the printing press name) it was opposite the London Inn.  When your record came out i bought one and true to (my) form it was faulty and couldn't be taken back, i still have it somewhere ---any chance of a refund?

There is an LP on Ebay at the moment priced at £4.50, only 2 days to go. Dare i say, heard 'Cupids' on Radio 2  yesterday, just before ten on Ken Bruce show. I really must stop this as i am becoming anorak of the week.
Kate:Quite the nicest sort of anorak, we are The Cupids Anorak Groupies.

Hi Mike - After Inspiration it was the 'slippery slope', you know - Drink, Drugs, Rehab-More Drink more Drugs... Actually, the Stamford area Cupids returned to fairly normal lives but some people from Leamington Spa area made a living out of the name right up until about 2003.
   If Al Tutt were to get in touch I could arrange for a Vinyl copy of the LP and  would be happy for him to pass it on to the Museum if he thought they would appreciate it.
   Dorothy Please send me your address and I will organise a CD copy of the singles and the LP for you.
   Just a quick hello to Nigel and any Cupid's Anorak Groupies - without you I would not be indulging myself right now!
   Daphne I remember the Central Printing Press - they printed the 'Pink-Un'  the sports paper,at the weekends. Is it still there?

   Sorry it took so long to answer.

Kate:  Hi Terry - we are always here for you, we don't mind waiting.
Those  Cupids Anorak Groupies referred to above, i.e.

Thanks for that Terry - keeps us all happy just to hear you once more.

Hi there,
So pleased to find all this information about Cupid's Inspiration, and to find lead singer Terry on here too.
I heard Yesterday has Gone on Radio 2 last week.  It was one of my favourite records and I remember buying the single and playing it over and over and over! Wish I'd kept some of my 45s now.
The record that Brian Mathew played wasn't actually by Cupid's Inspiration, he said he'd played that a couple of weeks ago.  I can't remember who he said it was, but it wasn't a patch on the Cupid's version.
Don't know how I managed to miss seeing them live - I lived in Worthing in 1968 and saw loads of groups.  Yes I know Worthing is known as Costa del Geriatric, but almost every 60s group played there at the Assembly Hall or the Pier.  Wonder if they did?  
I'm really sorry I missed them having just found the YouTube video!  What a brilliant voice Terry has - I had forgotten how good he was.  Not to mention the looks... I was 15 at the time - too young to be a groupie, but I'd have been right there at the front.  Now I'm too old!  Anyway....  I uploaded the video to my Facebook page, always good to share isn't it.
The postings on here are really fascinating - it's amazing to see what one little question can generate!  Hope I can join the conversation even though I'm a relative outsider.
The song still gives me goosebumps - and if there's any get together I'm sure loads of fans would turn up.  Can someone direct me to Stamford?
All the best,
Kate: Great posting Chris - sure Terry will wallow in adoration!  You are welcome on forum anytime.  Thanks for your input.

In my younger days I was a pro saxophonist. In the 1960s, when with the Come Dancing band of Andy Ross, I got to know a John Cockin, budding musician, string player, who lived in Oundle Vicarage. I was dating his sister, Claire. John once came to hear me play in Birmingham, circa 1967/8, just before he went to London to study music.
I was sorry to have lost contact. Can this be the same John Cockin? A shock to read that he has died. Can anyone tell me more, please?

Have just 'tuned in' for the first time in a while and I thought that I would answer Chris's query about the original version of 'Yesterday Has Gone'.
We heard it as an LP track by 'Little Anthony And The Imperials'. It was more laid back than Cupids' version, because they were 'duh wop'( hope I got that right) based.
I met a couple of them at a 'gig' in a Swiss Cottage Hotel and when I was introduced one of them said- "So you're the lucky b.....d who had the hit with our track!" I think I ended up paying for the drinks that night.
By the way, for anyone interested their is a 'Shapes & Sounds' Compilation LP with 4 of our live BBC sessions on it.  Some GURReat stuff by others 60s/70s. bands including- The Late Dave Dee and the boys, The Pretty Things, The End, Skip Bifferty and more !!!   Just Goto TOP SOUNDS RECORDS LTD.. Or just tell me - Vynil or CD.
Sorry Kate - I could not stop myself!!!

Hi folks, great that this forum exists - in fact thats how I found Terry after years of searching! Thanks to that contact and subsequent chats with other members, I have been able to release 4 tracks that Cupids recorded for BBC radio in 1968 on a compilation CD and LP  called 'SHAPES AND SOUNDS VOLUME THREE, which features the band doing 'Dream', 'It Was Easier To Hurt Her', 'As Long As I Have You' and 'I Got A Mind To Give Up Living'. Its great stuff in perfect quality and as 3 of these songs never appeared on Cupids records at the time, its like listening to new tracks! Its available on Amazon or check out , and also features other 60s faves such as the Pretty Things and Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich.
Kate:  Thanks Nigel.  Cupids groupies will be so pleased to hear the news.

Hello again.
I had to write to tell you what a time I am having!
So many people have been in touch thanks to Nigel Cross, Kate and this newfangled 'interweb' thingy! - Love the comments on Cupids'
'youtube' site.
Have been back doing live 'Cameo' Performances at venues in Herts. and Bucks. Cupids are on the front of The Beat magazine with a full-page feature inside(November issue). There's the compilation LP. I've a live interview with DJ, Roger Day of BBC South next Monday and on top of all that I have been writing and singing together with some old friends with the idea of producing an 'Album' together, 4 songs done already! Does it get any better than that? I know it's all about me,me,me but I just want let you know and to thank you!!!
P.S. Season's Greetings to one and all.
p.p.s. I was really sad to hear of the 'passing' of our friend Geof Espin.

Kate: Hi Terry so glad you are having your come-back success.  Also glad that my site was instrumental in getting you all that attention. Would be so pleased if you could mention me and the site when possible = help to get me more hits and increase the postings.  In the New Year I am hoping to get a new computer and then add a gallery of photos to the site, so should be space for some of Cupids.    I too was upset to see the news about Geoff Espin as I remember him as a freshfaced lad starting his first job after leaving school.  Keep posting your news we are all hanging on your every sound beat. x

Hi Amy,
Here was I thinking how good my memory is and then you mention your Dad, Andy Dancer. Was he involved after my time with Cupid's? I finished in 1971/2. There were one or two personnel changes after that and then it seems that a completely different set of lads from Leamington Spa came in and made a living as Cupid's Inspiration until the early years of this century-sounds like a history lesson now doesn't it? Please give us more info about Dad, to jog my memory.
Should anyone be interested in seeing a live, well almost (a)live 2009 Cupid performance go to youtube for 'New Amen Corner and Cupid's Inspiration at Amersham Rock and Roll Club'-it shook a few 'cobwebs'off I can tell you!! Wivlotsanlotsaluv, Terry.

Hello Terry
I have just found this web page and have been having a delightful time reading all the emails and recognising names from my youth in Stamford!We used to be neighbours and of course I then became one of your greatest fans. I think the last time I saw you was when I came to see you at a gig near Bournemouth where I was in college..The band (before you were famous) also played for a 6th form do we had in the Assembly Rooms I remember. My favourite was always Under the Boardwalk. I still have a signed photo of you all as the Loose Ends I think. Great to hear your news.

Hello Joy,
I have just 'tuned in' after a bit of a while and what a pleasure to see your message.
Kate, it is just as well that Joy is communicating from a safe distance because when we met at the Bournemouth gig I was so happy to see a familiar face that when I went to hug her I managed to, accidentally, 'gie her a Glasgae Kiss' (nut her) . I felt very bad about it, not as bad as Joy must have felt 'cos it left her with a nasty bump on her head. Would hate to repeat that! But would love to hear more from Joy (nee Reed-Yes?)  - Memories keep flooding back along with the tears sometimes, that's just me though.
Sorry but have not wished Kate and you lovely people - A Happy New Year! Never too late, I hope!
Hi Terry thanks for that.  Any photos to send me of Cupids?  Love to post one on the site. Kate

Hi Terry
Parcel received.  Thanks very much for the CDs.  I have had a listen to some of the tracks - can't think why you didn't make it big time.
I have had a browse through the booklet - things were not straight-forward and lots of things seemed to conspire against you.
Perhaps you are getting a second chance.  Hope so anyway.  Anyway - its got to be fun, hasn it?

Love from Kate
Keep in touch

Hi Kate,
Glad you received the CDs ok and hope that they play alright.Thanks for your kind comments about Cupid's too.
Have to say it was good to see pic. of 'young Jimmy'. It was before I got to know him, though we both lived in Lancaster Road, which is a few streets away from Lambeth walk. I remember the Bradshaw brothers from School. I think Eric was in the Navy, 'cos he came back to the school in his uniform once when Colin and I were Boxing, not each other, I hasten to add! -He could have floored me with one punch and without really trying!  I have seen Colin at the O.S. Reunions.
Is Betty a Bradshaw too?
Talk about memory Lane. Always nice to hear about people from the 'ole Town.
Incidentally, my sister Barbara bumped into Joy Prior the other week and she said she would be in touch again. (I think she had forgotten about the 'Glasgae Kiss' until I brought it up, 'cos I'm sure she would have called by now if she was going to!)

Yes, Terry, Betty is a Bradshaw - and a very helpful one too.  Thanks Betty for the photos - everyone will enjoy seeing them. Kate

Didn't Eric Bradshaw die in a road accident in about 1968?

Kate: Hi Richard.  Not sure about Eric perhaps if he's Betty's brother she will tell us? Hope this is not too distressing for you Betty.

April 7, 2010 @ 8:16 PM Reply  |  Email  |  Print  |  Top

Hi  Yes that is correct Eric did get killed as a young boy in an  accident.  Terry you are thinking of Gerald the older brother who was in the Navy.  Jimmy lived up Lambeth Walk when the photo was taken he was a big friend of Colins.  The sad thing is that I think Peter Dawson died some years ago in Australia.

Hello Betty,
Sincere apologies for getting the names wrong it is Gerald of course and there is also Peter, I think.
I hope you do not mind me mentioning 'little' Eric again, as I remember fondly that he and his cousin used to come to our 'gigs' on their scooters.
Sadly, I also remember, as Richard noted, what happened to them back in 1966, wasn't it? - Lovely lads - both!
I cannot remember Peter Dawson, was he in the Lambeth Walk 'gang' or from another street?
Kate, would love to hear more from Betty.

Fairly certain it was 1967.

He was on the way back from Peterborough my class.

He came back that night through the villages...I came back on the A1 or else we would have been riding together.

Kate:  Thankyou Richard. Some memories are with us for ever.

Both very wrong, it was 1966 and he was on his way to Pilsgate.  It happened along the Barnack Road by the entrance to Burleigh Park, I think it is the farm entrance

Hi Terry
Add me to your legion of 'fans'. I remember 'Yesterday's Gone' with great affection as a teenager. Grabbed it on iTunes ages back, then last week Radio 2 played 'My World' which I'd never heard before and was blown away  I thought (wrongly) you guys were 'one hit wonders'. After hearing this I trawled the internet and found a CD via Amazon which I have now ordered - dunno when it'll arrive as it's coming from Germany. Anyway, I then googled your name (which brought me here!) to see what else you have recorded. I see from the thread you refer to a compilation with some live tracks, available from TOP SOUNDS RECORDS LTD which I'd like to grab as well but so far having no luck finding their website. Are you able to forward on the exact link?
Cheers, Rik

Hi Kate,
Hello Phil, The drummer in the Picture is Tony Peck whose brother Kenny (sadly no longer with us) became Lead Guitarist , they lived in Tallington.
The Loose Ends was one of Cupid's Inspiration's former names. It was The Blue Sounds before that and became The Ends when we went off to Germany then The Age Of Consent, then Age with T.Rice-Milton until we went into the recording studio and did Yesterday Has Gone and we came out as Cupid's Inspiration.
Billie Davis tells me that she had a good time in Stamford recently. Is the local band called SOUNDS FORCE? She mentioned them, I think she may have sung with them.
Would love to hear more from Phil.

Eric Bradshaw was the epitome of the 'mod' of the 60's. He was a great friend and always getting into trouble for climbing up into our class window at the High School!! I remember everyone being in the Square being in deep mourning on the Saturday morning after he died on the Friday night.Terry, I had forgotten the 'incident' but no problem. Great to see Barbara..she recognised my voice in Stamford market. I have photos too of Cupids and of the Loose Ends and if I can work out how to put it on this site...will do..And Phil Snowden.. I remember him digging up onions from mum's garden to go with his steak late at night. If you ever have a reunion please make sure you put details on this page Kate.

Dear Terry,
              Would have to say in those early days of "Rock & Roll" all groups only knew 3 cords? Myself and all the members of the "Saints Skiffle Group" and other local groups believed we provided the youth of our time with the music they wished to hear. The "Saints" only had but a few fans, unlike Cupids. But can I say myself and many of Stamfords earlier teenagers who were married before "Cupids" hit the scene were so pleased to see a Stamford group make the grade (so to speak) I have a laugh most weeks with all my old mates (old as  we all are now) when we have our regular Friday nights together for a few beers, by reminding them that if the "Saints" had continued we may well have made the grade? Next time you are in Town and see Gerald Bradshaw (Brady) or Mick Carr (Chainy) ask them why I say this? Anyway Terry I wish you all the best and would love to see "Cupids" get together again for a revival in Stamford. As I have said before I am personally willing to help. You must remember the  "Hedge Hoppers" they were great great group RAF lads from Wittering not local boys.  I and many of my mates knew them personally at the time. But "Cupids" of course were Stamford lads so when you performed on TV with "Yesterday has gone" Cupids were the talk of  Stamford Town. And still are if one looks at "Cupids" on this forum. Most will remember the RAF "Hedge Hoppers" but "Cupids" in this Town still hold the number one slot.
Take care Terry and for the sake of all your fans please try to sort out a revival. Lets hear again some "Good old Rock & Roll" as it was deliverd by local Stamford lads before the rich & famous were ever even heard of.

Kind Regards Clem.

Hi terry

Thanks for your reply and sorry for my tardy response. Since I last posted I have been digging a little deeper into your recorded output and it seems you released a few singles as a solo artist after Cupids. I have been searching without success to find a CD compilation - only old vinyl 45's on ebay. I reckon it would cost a fair bit to get them all and no guarantee of the playing condition! So then, at the risk of appearing 'cheeky' if you have these and would be prepared to burn me a CD - maybe with the aforementioned live Cupids tracks as well I would be happy to pay you direct.

Best regards, Rik

Hi Terry!

Very glad to have found this site, I've been looking for ways to get in touch, as I've just recently started a job working for a label in Berlin called Blue Cat Music and my boss is a huge fan of yours! We'd be very interested in re-releasing Yesterday has Gone and Cupid's Inspiration through our label here in Berlin. What we usually do is re-print the Master and sell it in all major physical and online retailers here in Europe (especially Germany) with 20% of every sale coming back to the artist/rights owner. If the master is no longer around (tape is gone) we can come up with an innovative way to make the re-release more exciting than a regular bootleg and ensure that more of the income from CDs that are sold will come back to you. Anyway, if that sounds of interest it would be great to hear back from you!

Thanks for your time and best wishes,
