Tony Kingsbury on.....


..A small guy who could have been a giant....

I first heard of Hratch from some sixth formers at the nearby girl's school. Education being better then, they had already learned to visit Bunjies Coffee House and Folk Cellar in Soho on Wednesday nights where Hratch was resident.

 In December 1967 there was news of a "folk evening" (a popular term of the day) at another school nearby. Hratch was the guest and from then on we too became Bunjies regulars...(was it Hratch or the sixth form girls).....Anyway, Hratch was "discovered" by the actor David Hemmings and nearly became a pop star!.

Joel Garabedian: Keyboard
Tom Collison: Guitar, Backing Vocal

 A band called "Kate" was put together with Hratch as the vocalist. They made three singles for CBS one of which..."Strange Girl" was Tony Blackburn's record of the week (kiss of death!) As time went on Hratch wrote more of his own material. Good commercial stuff I always thought. Whenever we booked him audiences always went away very happy but alas major success always eluded him. Hratch now lives on the south coast with his equally talented family. I am delighted to still be in touch after 33 years...Not too late for an album??

(Ian A Anderson)

For an article on Al.

Just after he moved down to Padstow I spent several memorable days with Al, his wife and daughter Post. I especially recal tranquility at Tregudda Gorge and walks along deserted beaches. tm
