Andrew Powell - founding member of the Below Average White Band ...

Posted by Picasa
A long-lost star returns. Founding member of the Below Average White Band,  Andrew Powell (with ironic Bay City Rollers hat, bought on a Thursday outing to Weston Super Mare).  Ros Cleal passed Andrew word of this site and he encloses this portrait saying "I am gradually working my way through the blog, which prompts many and varied memories, mostly sunny and happy, some sublimely surreal, and not a few suffused with a scrumpy haze. I am particularly impressed with Dr. Phillpotts’ definitive biography of the BAWB – a before-its-time, pre-punk fusion of prog rock, modern classical music, improvised heavy metal (literally – teapots, cutlery, chairs etc.) and drunken revelry in the great British tradition."
