Home History of the Band
Auricle

From the Greenock Telegraph ( 6th June 1974), Auricle was the band George, Alan and I formed with Ian Parker. We used to play 20 minute-long instrumentals at the Burns Howff pub in Glasgow.

Ian wrote some cool tunes and we stretched our chops to play some fancy chord charts and time signatures.

Ian is now with the Hollies and has had an impressive musical career to date. When Auricle split up, George, Alan and I stayed together in various guises, playing the social clubs as a trio called the "Blue Shoes" and pursuing original music with other musicians.
