A sort of modern remanifestation of Roaring Jelly, with new material as well as a few revamped Jelly favourites. Line-up:

  • Derek Pearce – vocal, guitar, ukulele, mandolin, fiddle, accordion
  • Clive Harvey – vocal, guitar, ukulele, banjulele
  • Graeme Taylor – vocal, bass guitar, guitar, banjo

The original bass player Da'aboth (right, on photo below) had health problems and after a few months was replaced by the Morden Maestro, Graeme Taylor (Gryphon / Home Service / Rolf Harris / Denise Black's Loose Screw) who had been a session player on Roaring Jelly recordings. GT had been a big Jelly fan and when invited to join the Essential Batty Acids tour with Clive and Derek in 2007 said, "Sod off. Only joking – I'd love to." The rest is wisteria.

PLEASE NOTE: The band is currently dormant and not gigging but is technically still open to enquiries. Due to the pressures of other work and the need for many hours of rehearsal the answer would probably be no, but you never know your luck . . . To enquire about The Omega 3 contact :
