Ace Kefford Stand

From: Birmingham, England

This Birmingham group was originally named the Sorcerers and then Youngblood. They changed their name to the Ace Kefford Stand when, you guessed it, Ace Kefford, former Move bassist, joined their line-up in April, 1968. Members of the band were brothers Dave Ball (guitar) and Dennis Ball (bass), Colin “Cozy” Powell (drums) and the one and only Ace Kefford (vocals).

In 1969 they recorded their only 45, which includes ‘Gravy Booby Jamm’ on the B-side. This is a hard driving tune that can’t help but remind one of the classic 1967 Jimi Hendrix Experience hit ‘Foxey Lady’. Nonetheless, it’s a great song in its own right.
