In 1983 the Neo Romantic BlitzKid music of synthesists John Mellor, Steve Millard and Frankie Abbot created new waves in the sedate seaside resort of Penzance Cornwall.
Dave Hastilow, a record producer, sound engineer and analogue synthesist himself who had worked for Pete Townshend of The Who became interested in their music and took them into a local recording studio installed in an old wartime bomb shelter, also playing drums on the track and crafting the sound using the natural acoustics of the concrete bunker. The result was ‘Let's Get Together’ and ‘Memories’ and he named the band Shazam.
