20:20 Portrait – Allan

Allan Crockford, veteran lynchpin of the thriving Medway music scene since the early ’80’s, has contributed to a number of Groovy Uncle tracks over the years, providing bass (notably, ‘No Stone Unturned’ from Suzi’s ‘Girl From The Neck Down’ LP) and lead guitar (check out ‘The Moon And Back’ and ‘Mrs Saywell Says’ from the 2017 release ‘A Clip Round The Ear’).

Allan has played in a number of popular and influential bands including The Prisoners and The James Taylor Quartet but only relatively recently became frontman and songwriter when he formed his much lauded psych-pop outfit, Galileo 7.

A Thank You

After all the tremendous response to the album “Girl From The Neck Down” I thought it about time I composed an open letter to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past 12 months and beyond and to all involved in the project. Everyone involved was totally committed to the project from start to finish and there is no way I could have done it without you. My apologies in advance for any glaring ommissions. So, in no particular order….
