|Tony Morgan in EMF|
(More on Trev's Hobo - A to Z of Coventry bands)
In 1980 Tony once again asked me to write some songs for another new band EMF which, with the Specials and Selecter (Two Tone) putting Coventry on the map, was a Ska band. Tony's concept was to form a Ska band but with blues bass lines. I wrote some songs but Tony got two girl singers in who had their own material. i used to go along to early gigs and start the dancing off - you couldn't stand still at a ska gig after all!
for RCA which was on the Battle of the Bands album. I bought the single. Tony left the band and returned to the blues in the Travelling Riverside Blues Band and now lives in South Wales where he is the singer with the ever popular Hoochie Coochie Blues Band.
