Climax Chicago Blues Band:

Founded in 1968 as a sixpiece, playing straight blues and bluesy rock.
Steady line up centered around guitarist Peter Haycock (who many years on recorded the first guitar album on the all instrumental NO SPEAK record label). Pete picturered right doing promo for Westbury guitars in a 1981 magazine ad.

Later on the group dropped the limiting 'Chicago' label and changed group name to Climax Blues Band - and found success on the U.S. market.
But time flies - and in '89 they gigged at "The Tramshed" in Woolwich and in '93 at "The Half Moon" in Putney - back on the U.K. trail.
