1) The Sods were a superb band from Harlow Essex who deserved more than history has currently accorded them. Like many bands at least one member had an epiphany after seeing the Pistols ... "At the time, I had long shoulder length hippy hair and wore flared jeans and trousers. That night changed my life. The next day I had my hair cut and threw away all of my flares. Never worn them since and never will do again!!"
