Coventry Hitmakers

RAINBOWS

When Coventry Beat band The Peeps knew it was the time for change they reinvented themselves as a progressive band in the mould of Traffic called The Rainbows. With sculptured hair, bizarre eye make-up and multi-coloured flowing robes they moved their base to London. They just about scraped into the 70’s, before becoming Still life.

54Rainbows-003“We released a lot of stuff on CBS Records. We wore silly clothes and make-up for photo Sessions, and as I recall we spent a lot of time in Germany at the “Star Club ” in Hamburg in particular. We had lots of great nights with visiting English Bands, like the time Ozzy Osbourne (pre-Sabbath) joined us on stage for a wild finale!!
