This website contains original, self-researched information as well as content simply copied from other peoples' websites. Every effort has been made to credit and acknowledge those responsible for helping me out... whether it be first-hand or third-party.
This whole project has been a great excuse to get in touch with bands and band members, as I have produced something to point people to, in order to back-up my interest and requirement for information.
I would like to thank the following people for their time, kindness and support... both over the years and just recently... in helping me on my 'umbral quest' for knowledge...
