    Tapestry of Delights:
    This extremely popular Scottish beat group formed back in 1961, but they stabilised with the above line-up in 1963. They were managed by the owners of the Flamingo Ballroom in Scotland prior to being signed by Andrew Oldham. Their first 45, Now We're Thru', introduced their distinctive minor key, acoustic 12 string sound to an unsuspecting world and gave them their only, albeit minor hit. The follow-up, That's The Way It's Got To Be was a pounding rocker, which could have really put them on the map but sadly it was under-promoted and flopped. The third 45 was much quieter and more in the style of their debut - unfortunately it met with the same fate. A change to Oldham's new Immediate label failed to change their fortunes and by the end of 1966 most of their initial recording line-up had left or was on the verge of leaving. Oldham, too, lost any interest he might have had in the band and the crumbling outfit found themselves with no manager and no recording contract. Resilience proved to be one of their main qualities, though, they re-grouped with a new line-up, got signed to Decca and found a new manager and producer. Wooden Spoon was another fine single but in the true tradition of Poets' singles it flopped. It was written by their manager Eric Woolfson and Unit 4 + 2's Tommy Moeller. Mulvey then left. He briefly sang with Mustard who later became Tear Gas. Breakey joined Studio Six and Fraser Watson departed for The Pathfinders, but The Poets still soldiered on, undergoing various line-up changes until they stabilised with line-up. This new line-up is thought to have recorded a 45 for Pye, Alone Am I (it's been suggested too that this was the work of a completely different Irish band). The band's death knell came in 1971 when Hughie Nicholson left to join Marmalade, Ian McMillan having originally departed to a short-lived act called Cody. The same year Tony Meehan, a Radio Scotland dee-jay used a band led by Dougie Henderson who called themselves The Poets to cut a 45 to promote Strike Cola, a sort of Scottish equivalent to Pepsi. Meehan was working as an advertising consultant at the time.
    After they split in 1971 Nicholson joined The Marmalade and McMillan was in Cody, who splintered from White Trash. The two later re-united in Blue. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Frank Murphy)
