The Zero's 1964, Wastewater, The Lake District
Steve Corker Pete Morrison Clive Spinks Tevor Marshall
This was taken in the pub at the end of Wastewater, the deepest lake in The Lake District. We camped at the side of Wastewate near the roadside and after this session I fell asleep in my sleepingbag and rolled into it. It rained a lot, so we went to Morecombe. Pete and Steve were 16, Clive was 14 and Trevor was 17
Beatroots became The Zero's when 14yr old Clive Spinks joined, on bass. Later the same year, at a gig at The Boulevarde Tadcaster , Tracy Coleman got up to sing "Hippy Hippy Shake" with us and promptly joined the band .
Trevor died some time ago, but I don't know the circumstances or even when, but I am doing an ongoing investigation to find out more. Should anyone out there know, please email me (Pete) on firstname.lastname@example.org

The first band you are in, is always the best. It's what moulds you.
