IT’S the end of an era tomorrow when one of Blackpool’s most enduring bands finally hang up their guitars and amps.
Complex, who began their music career in 1968 and were big names on the Fylde coast, are playing their last ever gig at The Station pub in Lytham.
The band, whose original 1968 line up consisted of Tony Fisher, Brian Lee, Lance Fogg and Tony Shakespeare, supported visiting chart acts and made their own records during a successful decade in music, eventually securing a recording contract with Pye Records (their two LPs are now changing hands for a small fortune among hardcore record collectors).
The story would have ended in 1978 when the group split – but four-and-a- half years ago they decided to hit the road again.
Older and with slightly less hair, but no less enthusiastic, they have had a blast but have now decided the time is right to finally call it a day.
There is no entrance fee for tomorrow’s Lytham gig. Should be a blast.
