Tall Man Thin

Rob? - Vocals, Guitars and Songwriter

John Buckingham - Keyboards and harmony vocals

Tony - Bass

Nick - Drums

 

It must have been sometime in 1988 when John Buckingham was living in Maidstone in Kent that he answered an advert on the wall of a music shop for a keyboard player. When he phoned the number the drummer said that the advert had been there for a couple of years and that they had given up looking for a keyboard player, but he said that he would see if he could get the "guys" back together again.


Tall Man Thin was reborn!


Tony the bass player lived in Sittingbourne and turned out to be very good friend of John's. After only 3 months of solid rehearsals, they were ready for gigs. They only managed a couple of gigs, one gig in the Albion pub in Maidstone and another in Faversham before the songwriter announced that he was in love and was going to live in America with his American girlfriend.


That was the quick end of Tall Man Thin!


John's only regret was that he didn't have a string machine at that time and that the whole set lacked a classic string sound.
