Bill Putt and The Lost Souls Story

Bill's first band was
the Mystics, (1964-'65) whose claim to fame was a New Faces appearance (pic 3). Then came The Lost Souls, (1965 - '68), who won Hoadley's Battle of the Sounds in 1966, and a recording session with Pat Aulton that resulted in the release of the Souls' first and only single, This Life Of Mine on a Festival label. (Incidentally, the single was picked up recently for the prestigious Rhino Nugget series). When I first came across Bill (and Mark Kennedy), they were playing in an outfit called Gallery (1968 - '69) Until I can find out more, revel in the strange beauty of the accompanying photos, including one very brooding shot of a moustache-less Putt sporting enormous winkle-pickers.. Scary ain't it?
