The Nervous Fellas featuring on Slap Bass the young Buzzsaw Pete Turland who had joined the Nervous Fellas a year before replacing Rockin Ronnie Hayward when Ronnie went to Texas to join the band the Tail Gators.
Pete Turland came from London, England with the help of Roy Williams of Nervous Records U.K. Mark Twang contacted Pete and persuaded him coming to Canada would be a good thing. (He is still here over 20 years later so I guess it was)
We were lucky at that time to be managed by Laurie Mercer at Sam Feldman who bought and fronted us a return one year open ticket for Pete and a working visa for Canada.
