“Chris Bowden, Drummer with Paul Fenda and the Teenbeats 1961-1963. Later with John Morgan and the BASIX. (see Manchester District Music Archive)
I was one of the BASIXS invited to take part in the filming of the Granada Televison programme "The Blues and Gospel Train". We had to meet at Central Station and were filmed running (over the camera man) onto the platform (usually reserved for the prestigious "Midland Pullman" Once on the train we were filmed performing a few of our usual favourite Blues numbers. On arrival at Wilbraham Road (aka "Chorltonville") we joined the crowd and watched Muddy Waters walking the track toward the station. What a day.
The station at Wilbraham Road was disused and part of the closed Manchester Central to Faifield loop line.
Whatever happened to John Morgan and the rest of the BASIXS.
Chris Bowden, alive and kicking but not drumming.”
