Mick Lister, The Truth
Hello everyone, Friars ..
well I think I must have spent most of my teenage years there!!.
Thinking about it now we were so lucky to have a local gig that supplied
the wealth of premium artistes/ bands to our town. Can't think of
anywhere in the world this could have happened and have fond memories of
being 16 and whenever a support band pulled out (my first ever band The
Stowaways) would get a call from Dave Stopps to see if we would play
(which of course we did!!) I also feel very lucky to have been one of
the very few local musicians to follow their dream of headlining Friars
in 1983 with The Truth (Formed out of Nine Below Zero),
Fond Memories indeed.
called it a day in 1989. Mick
Lister continues to work in the music industry managing and promoting new taent
and has also worked with the likes of Any Winehouse. Dennis Greaves and Brian
Bethell perform in Nine Below Zero again. Gary Wallis went on to play in Mike
and The Mechanics and Pink Floyd amongst others
The original line up (minus Wallis) reformed for a tour in 2012.
split in 1984. They reformed briefly in 1990
