An Introduction To


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' was recorded in 1971 at Tin Pan Alley Studios London. Produced by A. L. Lloyd, four more albums followed. 'BEST O' T' BUNCH' 1974, 'FOR OLD TIME'S SAKE' 1975, 'SIT THEE DOWN' 1977 and 'THAT LANCASHIRE BAND' 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.
