Spectrum - the story so far
Mike Rudd (3rd left) formed Spectrum in 1969 with the late Bill Putt on bass, Lee Neale on keyboards and Mark Kennedy on drums, the same line-up that went into Bill Armstrong's Albert Park studio in 1970 and recorded the famous single I'll Be Gone (Some day I'll have money) .
Due to a local radio ban the single didn't get released for another six months, in which time the band had moved on to a more experimental phase - which may partly explain why Rudd made the questionable decision not to include the single on the band's first album, Spectrum Part One.
Despite this, and sundry other Spinal Tap moments, the band still exists some forty-eight years later, albeit with Rudd the sole remaining original member.

With bugger-all on the gig front to report on, perhaps it's time to introduce you to the A Separate Reality page, which you can access via the Stop Press page and which mentions the stuff that gets us through the day when gigs of any sort are either a memory or something to look forward to in the dim distant. Here I'm pictured (courtesy of Peter Lamont) in company with the artist Graeme Drendel at the Lindberg Gallery in Collingwood. Pretty arty-farty, huh?
