... Baileys in Derby, commuting four nights a week. in 1977 the band divided. I don't recall the new Drops of Brandy lineup, but Ted, Steve and Tim formed PARIS to do original material written by Tim Constable and Clive Barnwell. Paris was completed with Pat Millar (vocals), Mike Harrington (bass, later replaced by Fran Pettifer). Ted was later replaced by Danny (?). Paris played around the Midlands, and continued until about 1982, including a residency at 'The Red House' pub (Stoney Stanton Road, now demolished).

Thanks for that Tim - I will add that in.I seem to remember Paris but had forgotten - think Ted told me about it at the time. Didn't know the Red House had been demolished but not surprised - a lot of old pubs are going now. Do you have any photos / audio of the band?Trevor
