Big Time Charlie Potatoes

8 October, 2011 (23:34) | Propergander. | By: Blogkeep

Some 15 or so years ago I used to regularly watch bands at the Castle on Oldham street Manchester. Bands such as Pagans Chemistry Set, The Hot Bananas and Charlie Potatoes amongst others. All that I have from that time are wonderful memories and some tunes.

Here are some of Charlie Potatoes tunes.

“The recording and performance quality is generally pretty poor by professional standards, but I believe they are mostly all good or great songs. Maybe one day a real band will record some of Charlie’s stuff properly and make him a happy man.” – Naughty Nathan: Naughty Nathans Charlie page

Big Time Charlie are
Naughty Nathan – Bass guitar
Johnny Smokes – Drums and backing vocals
Charlie Potatoes – Rhythm/lead guitar and vocals

If anyone reading this has recordings of The Hot Bananas, Pagans Chemistry set or indeed any bands that played the Castle on Oldham street Manchester in the mid to late ’90’s please drop me a line.
