The Oldham Tinkers formed in the mid 1960's following a chance meeting in a Lancashire pub. Brothers Larry and Gerry Kearns and John Howarth formed the band and would go onto record tracks for various Topic Record compilations before being asked to record their first of five albums for Topic. OLDHAM'S BURNING SANDS (12TS206) was recorded in 1971 at Tin Pan Alley Studios London. Produced by A. L. Lloyd, four more albums followed. BEST OT BUNCH (12TS237) 1974, FOR OLD TIME'S SAKE (12TS276) 1975, SIT THEE DOWN (12TS323) 1977 and THAT LANCASHIRE BAND (12TS399) 1979. This introduction to The Oldham Tinkers release is a snap shot of the wonderful collection of colourful material recorded by a lost treasure within the Topic Records stable. The band played their early repertoire of songs learnt at family parties from parents, uncles and family friends. They delved into their own childhoods in Oldham, unearthing the songs they and their friends sang as kids as well as also introducing new songs and embraced everything Oldham; Lancashire. A regular feature on BBC radio, recording tracks for both John Peel and Andy Kershaw as well as supplying music for various BBC TV Programmes. One of the biggest highlights of the bands career was being asked in 1976 to appear for the Queen and The Duke Of Edinburgh at the Queen's Silver Jubilee Royal Gala Performance at the Palace Theatre, Manchester.
