Pipeline 105 was posted out on July 13th so should be with subscribers very soon.

However, I’m sorry to say that I squeezed off the last crossword clue when laying out the page – so here it is:

 MALCOLM LENNY (ex Packabeats) BOOK

Malcolm Lenny (ex Packabeats) has a book out. While not a 100 percent musical memoir book he does recall his time with The Packabeats and The Hi Fi’s

It’s available in paperback and e-format at Amazon worldwide

Here’s the Amazon UK link: Paperback & E-book

Book Description:  After being told that I should make a note of all the stories and people I’ve met during my life in music, as well as working in the television industry for 34 years, I felt compelled to put my own reminisces down on paper. It’s just that it occurred to me that I’ve met an awful lot of quite well-known people during my life, albeit some in only a small way. I played in ‘60s pop groups The Packabeats and recorded 3 singles with Joe Meek (The TELSTAR Man) and The Hi-Fi’s and recorded two singles with Glyn Johns (The Beatles  record producer after George Martin). I also had a No.1 & No.4 in the German charts in ’65 and ’66 and a hit album with The Hi-Fi’s. Later on I worked in the TV industry, mostly with London Weekend Television (ITV) and later SKY TV (Satellite TV).
