Yes, whirligigtv is great, especially for 50s stuff. Carroll Levis is discussed quite a lot.

Interesting that the Sunnyside Skiffle Group - who beat The Quarrymen in the first round in 1957 went on to beat them (Johnny & the Moondogs) again in the finals in 1959 but had changed their name to The Connaughts. Finals were in Manchester. Quite a lot of info here: http://originalonefeather.tripod.com/id17.html

And here: http://www.kuerbiskopf.de/pageID_3459018.html

I'm busy trying to find out more about Billy Fury's Carroll Levis connection... I'm also looking into all these groups: The Clayton Squares, The Raving Texans, Billy J Kramer...

Wow - i had no idea that was your site. Well, you've definitely got more info on 1959 Carroll Levis than most other sites. I'm curious about what happened to The Connaughts...
I only read the part I was looking for info about but I'll add it to favourites and check it out later. The green is easy to read on the black background but I struggle with the blue text.
I just noticed they are they wearing cowboy boots in that top photo!!!

if you can add anything to the carroll story we can rewrite that in....there is only so much you can put in with leading into other areas but
i need to brush up some of the pages...
