"I went to see Joe Cocker on the opening night of his stint at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney. The Hordern is a huge hall in the Royal Agricultural Showgrounds in Sydney. At that time it had been fitted with a flat seating arrangement and a raised stage to cater for touring rock bands like Cockers. I lived in a share house in Surry Hills which is across Moore Park from the Showgrounds and I saw a lot of shows at the Hordern.

"Patto was the support for Cocker and his entourage. I knew little about them even though I was an avid reader of NME and other industry rags. I had read that Ollie Halsall was a hot guitarist but that was all I knew. I was, and still am, a huge Cocker fan so I was really looking forward to seeing him after following him from the intial hit of 'With a Little Help from My Friends' and on through the albums and the Woodstock and Mad Dog films. Patto were a revelation. A solid rocking act. The only song I really remember is "Singing the Blues on Reds" but I was amazed by Ollie Halsall's solos.

"Tanyrate, Cocker and entourage come on stage and start up. Somewhere along the line they had lost Bobby Keys and Jim Price so they were short handed compared to the advertising but we didn't care. Cocker was in fine form, out of his head but so was most of the audience. Two or three songs into the set, Ollie wanders onstage looking a bit lost. I think there was an on stage announcement by Cocker as to the circumstances but it was forty years ago and the memory is hazy. What I do remember is Ollie and the other guitarist standing nose to nose with the guitarist yelling out the chords till Ollie got the tune. Ollie gained confidence as the show went on and started to unleash on a couple of the solos that just made time stand still. I'm no musician but I knew I was listening to some one really special. Then they started on "The Letter" and the band wound into this one with a big powerhouse sound. Cocker wailed, the chorus was a surge and Ollie played a solo. A solo that had the entire band agog trying to figure out where he was going and how he was going to resolve. The band was watching him intently, with the piano player hanging off his stool. As Ollie swept into the climax he turned his back and pulled out some piece of utter magic. The piano player nearly fell off his stool, the band roared on, Cocker laughed and launched into the wind up.

"I've seen a lot of acts now but that night does stick in the memory."

patto van

I was getting a ride down the M1 in the tranny after a Sheffield gig. Barnabas says, "cop car behind us, open the windows lads" Windows duly rolled down to let out most of the smoke. "He's put his lights on...pulling us over." Patto leaned forward and jettisoned the stash into space. Duly pulled over, cop asks all the usual questions while we all tried not to breathe. "Did I see you throw something out of the window?" he asks. "Just getting rid of a used condom, officer" Patto replies. "Don't hold with them, myself," the cop says, "It's like eating chocolate with the silver paper on>" "Off you go boys...behave yourselves." PS Lacking cruise control in the wagon, Barny used to put a concrete block on the gas pedal for motorway trips.

The Heath Piper

dave brooks

In 1996, Patto saxophonist Dave Brooks was fined for playing his bagpipes on Hampstead Heath.

The actual prosecution, brought by the Corporation Of London, was for playing a musical instrument on Hampstead Heath.
The case provided some humour as it was stated in court that one, Jimmy Reid, had been hanged in 1746, after the Battle of Culloden, for "playing an instrument of war and insurrection"

Dave's solicitor maintained that, as his pipes were thus an instrument of war and insurrection", they could not be classified!ed as a musical instrument.

The judge, seeing the humorous side of the case, threatened to have Dave Brooks charged with "bearing arms on Hampstead Heath and asked the bailiff of the court if he was "ready to take Dave Brooks, Highland bagpiper, to the cells below the court never more for his bagpipes to be heard.

In summing up, the Judge maintained that the original hanging of Jimmy Reid had been 'a gross miscarriage of justice' and that the bagpipes are a musical instrument in peace time.

Dave Brooks was found guilty on "three counts of playing a musical instrument" i.e. the bagpipes and fined £15 on each count a total of £45 plus £50 costs, despite a 1500 signatures petition by Hampstead people.

The Corporation of London as a token gesture gave consent for Mr. Brooks to play his bagpipes for one hour, three mornings a week on the bandstand at Parliament Hilt fields, which to this day he still does.

"Qu'est ce que 'fag' en Français?Patto

45 years ago today the Patto's (a novelty music act) set off for a one-off gig in Belgium, it paid decent money so we were sent. We thought Belgium was about the size of Rutland but it wasn't on this day. After getting to Dover, the boat ride, customs and the carnet (probably spelt wrong), Patto getting arrested for saying 'what's fag in French' that they thought was 'fuckin' French' when he was begging them for a ciggy, we started driving.

We eventually found the large town that we knew was near the place we were looking for and we never found it. We asked people on the street, we flagged down other vehicles, went to a police station and time was going on. Time passed until we knew it was too late, hours had gone by and we had blown it.

We pooled our cash and found a chippy caravan and bought chips with mayonnaise a filthy habit I think invented by the Belgys themselves. Two blokes turned up for chips and double mayonnaise (obviously Belgian) and they were talking about the non-appearance of Patto at the town carnival they had just left.

This was translated by the roadies who could speak French, German, Servo Croat and Icelandic while we all stood around like numpties with no linguistic skills at all. ( The roadies had degrees and we had one GCE between us).

We followed them to where the gig was, but too late. The stage in the town square was being packed away and when they learned who we were made piss off you tossers arm movements. We had no money for somewhere to stay, no petrol and no money for grub and we were in Belgium.

The mayor of this place loaned us some lolly, he must have been very trusting because I'm buggered if I would. The next day we made it back to blighty and travelled to a college gig in south London where we supported Steely Span, and we went down like a lead balloon.

I am now getting close to the reason I'm writing all this clap-trap so be patient. When I left home my wife Elaine still had two weeks before the predicted date of the birth of our second child. Clive (the bass) phoned his missus and she told him the baby had been born, so after all that little Matthew had arrived in my absence"

As far as can be established, although they made one appearance on BBC2 TV's 'Disco 2', in March 1971, Patto never made The Old Grey Whistle Test. Apparently, Patto were effectively banned from the BBC for the whole of 1972 - the pinnacle of their career - for missing a scheduled recording session for the "Sounds of the Seventies" program in October of 1971.

According to an article in a December issue of Timeout, Ollie took over for Bob Fripp in Centipede just days before their gig at The

Royal Albert Hall. Patto couldn't do the BBC session, because it was the only possible date for Ollie to rehearse with Centipede before playing the Royal Albert Hall.

The BBC ban on Patto was lifted early in 1973. One can only imagine how differently things might have panned out had they have been showcased by that most prestigious of shows.

Stockholm

Ten Years After tour poster 1972

Alvin Lee and Ten Years After did a tour of Scandinavia with us supporting. On the first night we played an absolute stormer and not one person applauded. Not one! Then Ten Years After came on, they hadn't played for six months. Ric the drummer was so rusty it was unbelievable. It was like Sweep playing the drums with Sooty on the Magic Organ

And the audience went crazy. It made me wonder what it was all about.. certainly not about going on and playing well. Anyway, Alvin couldn't believe Ollie. He'd never heard him before, and he absolutely flipped. So he got a Revox and recorded every single Patto gig on the tour. Alvin even used to travel from gig to gig in our van., He just wanted to be with Ollie

Dreadful sound quality. Virtually unlistenable

Perhaps the best illustration of the excitement they generated in concert occurred some two years after they had split up. On a Friday [Actually, Sunday 6 July- Ed.] night in July 1975. at the Torrington in Finchley (one of Patto's regular gigs and the scene of their farewell show two years earlier), the four original members played a one-off benefit for the family of one of their old roadies, who'd been killed on a trip to India. The queue stretched round the block, literally hundreds were locked out, and inside Patto were playing like they'd never been away."

Appalling quality recording. You had to have been there - and Roger Fitton was!

"I went to an all-night gig at the Kings Cross Cinema where Patto were supposed to be supporting Roxy Music. The latter superstars never turned up; no refunds were offered and the management compensated by repeatedly playing the Mothers of Invention with the Turtles at a million decibels.

So, when Patto finally took to the stage, they got a very bad reception from lots of morons in the crowd who clearly blamed them for being ripped-off. It was ugly, ugly, ugly - just a few badly-chosen words away from a full-scale riot.

But the band simply turned the situation on its head: John Halsey doing the Mummy stuff and then playing the washboard as the band sang [skiffle standards] and the four of them delivering one of the best live performances I have ever personally seen. Ollie Halsall's guitar playing was phenomenal and keyboard stuff he did made Patto sound so much more than a four-piece.

Tracks like Government Man and Singing the Blues on Reds - which I personally think is what they were all about with the light and shade and time changes in the middle - stand-up even today. They should have been famous - but they were probably ahead of their time."

Excellent quality recording made at the gig by Colin Johnson. Probably the best example of live Patto there is.

Particularly revealing on this session are Clive's bass and The Admiral's drumming - with which I'm sure he even surprised himself.

But, if you listen to nothing else, check out Ollie's solo on 'Hold Me Back' - possibly the finest example we have of what he was all about in those day. Prepare to be jaw-droppe.

'Im Baroque' is what I think the song is called. Colin names it 'Playing in Oz' Anyone?

The title 'And That's Jazz' derives from the inexplicable singing of the phrase at the end of 'My Days Are Numbered'

"I recorded this one afternoon during rehearsals for Patto's first album. Tracks 1, 2 and 3 are as recorded straight off the original 1/4 " tape, which is in remarkable condition considering it has sat on its machine for 10 years. Track 4 was in poor condition and has been engineered to make it listenable to. Many thanks to Crispin for this."
