Frantic Elevators, The Hamsters
Haughton Green Youth Club
24th February 1979

Neil Moss from Frantic Elevators playing bass for The Hamsters at Haughton Green Youth Club. The Hamsters were short of a bass player so Neil stepped in for the day. The Frantic Elevators did not play at this gig.

“Neil Moss was credited (along with Mick Hucknall) as co writer of "Holding back the years" which was an Frantic Elevators song, most of the Elevators songs were a collaboration between Hucknall and Moss. The song was revived by Mick in Simply Red. It spent 3 weeks as number 1 in the US in the mid 80's generating a fair bit in royalties (no mp3's in them days)
Neil Moss sometimes used a different name, On at least one of the record released by The Frantic Elevators. I was led to believe as a precaution against losing some of his dole money.
I am fairly sure Neil is the brother of Moey AKA Moet! of Hampsters/Sicknurse fame”

“abdom can't verify the dole bit but your correct in the relationship with Moet.”

“Neil Smith was the 'nom de plume' for Mr Moss, or Moey, not (Moet) not that champagne was Neil's preferred tipple, I think we all drank Boddies in the Grants Arms or bottles of Pils. Myself and Brian Turner lived in 336 Charles Barry Cres, Neil & Mick lived over Bonsall Street way, but it's all changed now. Crescents have all been demolished, I wish I had nicked the street sign for CBC, I'd have it proud of place in my office.”

“Yes you are right but both Neil and Ian Moss were both know as Moey to different circles. Moet is Ian of the Hamsters/Sick Nurse/The English Disease. Both Jax and I were meaning Ian not Neil.”
