In the history of the British blues band John Dammer takes his and only his place. At various times it was played by such masters as the leader of the Groundhogs, guitar virtuoso Tony TS McPhee, co-founder of Savoy Brown, the best harmonica UK John O'Leary, an outstanding blues pianist Bob Hall, slide guitarist Dave Kelly, multi-instrumentalist Nick Pickett. The band played the most diverse music, in addition to copyright things recorded a large number of covers, from the pre-war blues Archaic to Chuck Berry. Despite this, none of the five studio albums failed to chart popularity. The only commercially successful release was the single recording of jazz instrumentals Nine by Nine. John Dummer (John Dummer) was born in the suburbs of London - Surbiton. Having started studying music at the high school years, in 1963 he forms his first group Lester Square and GT's, takes the rhythm-and-blues. Full lineup now nobody remembers. In addition to the Dammer there playing legendary guitarist early British blues Top Topham (before entrance to the first of the Yardbirds before Eric Clapton) and saxophonist Chris Trengrove. Having existed for a couple of years, speaking on tour in the UK and Germany, Lester Square and GT's broke. After that, for a short time, John Dummer went to work in Kingston and Surbiton Borough News, and in 1965, forming his own group, John Dummer Blues Band (as a support group for a while on tour in the UK Howlin 'Wolf and John Lee Hooker), in original which included: Roger Pears (guitar), Pete Moody (bass), Dave Bidwell (drums), Bob Hall (keyboards) and John Dummer (vocals), while not calling himself John and Tony. In fact, the original John Dummer came to audition for the ad, placed in the magazine Melody Maker, a search of the blues vocalist. There he met with the remnants of an early group of Peter Green Muscrats represented Pears and Bidwell. Pete Moody played with Pears in yet another early British rhythm and blues band are Grebbels. In short, almost all members of the group already knew each other. Performed their music was based on the post-war electric Chicago blues. Beginning performances, the band quickly gained enough popularity in certain circles of British blues, and musicians are being invited to other formulations. In December 1965 Bidwell goes into Chicken Shack, a short time he was replaced by drummer Dave Elvidge, before had time to record with Jeff Beck. However, he soon leaves the group, deciding to devote more time to his family. In the end, for the shock had seats himself John Dummer, who began to play them back in the school band. Also, in connection with the move, left the band and Moody, it is replaced by another bass player - Tony Walker. In this structure, including saxophonist Chris Trengrove from the first group of John Dammer and 14-year-old sister of Tony Walker - Regina, in the autumn of 1966, they recorded a few tracks. Fierce guitar work Pears while not inferior to any Clapton or Green, but to release a CD and failed. After that, the group leaves Pears. Hall, who began in the early part of Groundhogs, invited to join the John Dummer his former bandmates - guitarist Dave Kelly, who had never played electric blues. After returning from the United States in 1966, where he met with Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, Kelly performed on the British club scene as a blues singer and slide guitarist. His statement created a furor in the Dutch blues festival. Then joins the band harmonica Steve Rye. While in the wake of the blues boom often played in clubs, pubs and colleges - the usual concert venues for this kind of music. However, changes in the composition of the group did not end there: the group left Tony Walker, who are tired of the part they Chikago- and country blues. He was more attracted to more modern music. Place bassist took Iain "Thump" Thompson, moreover took it not because of the outstanding musical abilities, and because the rest of the band thought (wrongly, as it turned out) that he has his own vehicle. Then, in the Savoy Brown left Bob Hall, and founded his own band Steve Rye, but instead from the same Savoy Brown moved harmonica John O'Leary. For a short period from July to September 1968, joined the group leader Groundhogs - one of the best blues guitarists UK Tony TS McPhee. Thus was built up, recorded their debut album Cabal (Mercury Records, 1969). Two tracks sung sister Dave Kelly - Jo-Ann Kelly, the best performer of the blues in the UK, who died prematurely in 1990 of a brain tumor. As might be expected, on the album sounds uncompromising blues-rock with enough hard and raw sound. On the drive there is no commercially-oriented composition, received an excellent job for amateurs and connoisseurs of white blues, but little interesting to the general public. The commercial success of the disc does not have, but soon the group started working on a new album. Immediately after recording the debut album from the group, John O'Leary and Dammer go McPhee, the last to revive Groundhogs. McPhee comes into place a new guitarist - Adrian "Putty" Pietryga of the Bristol group Deep Blues Band. The disappearance of the word "blues" from the name of the group did not result in dramatic stylistic changes in the music they perform. The second album of the same name c John Dummer Band (Mercury Records, 1969) was built on the same principle as its predecessor - a combination of their own material with the classic blues. The group rejoined Bob Hall, whose keyboards certainly decorated plate. Changes in the composition of musicians called and sound change: compared to the debut album sound became less rigid and more dynamic. Moreover, in contrast to the debut album, which focused on the postwar electric blues, here the emphasis shifted slightly towards more early music. One example of the latter is the execution of the things Big Feeling, originally recorded the legendary blues singer Ma Rainey already in 1928 the second album, even though he was fully sustained in the blues vein, turned out much more fun. And not only for music but also for decoration: on the back cover of one of the musicians was captured completely naked, the image will be blurred because the camera was not focused on it. Album went virtually unnoticed ... And yet - John Dummer himself in different compositions group play is not the most important role. Drummer, he was not the most outstanding, so I do not quite understand - why the band is named after him ...
