  2. Article in Hounslow Post from 13 September 1968 lists this line up as Downliners:

    Bob Taylor, Keith Grant, John Sutton and Nathaniel Duraine (sorry don't know instruments played). Says they recorded a track called "Spyder Tyme".

    Also a drummer called Pete Coulson played drums in one of the very early line ups when Peter Maggs was there. They reunited in Ealing band, The Henchmen in 1964. Later that year Coulson was replaced by John Kerrison from Frankie Reid & the Casuals and they became The Rockin' Eccentrics
