JESSICA'S THEME

JESSICA'S THEME C 1971  Heavy Rock
Jessica's Theme were originally called Motorised Grapes

The Line up of Motorised Grapes and Jessica's Theme was the same except for the drummer (according to Dennis Cotter) -
Vocals - Gordon Tunnicliffe
Lead Guitar - John Mchugh
Rhythm Guitar - Paul Bodanowych
Bass Guitar - Mick Roberts
Drums - Steve Thompson (later after name change - Bernie West)



Cliff Wagstaff  of  Coventry  bands  Tobacco Ash Sunday, Tropical Boot Company and Quantum told us - 
"They were managed by Mick Cubbon from Binley Woods (Mick moved to the US and is married
to a singer called Gina Noelle (Google it for more info). He’s a very good producer and has a home PC-based studio.). They made a self-funded vinyl LP but I don’t have a copy – they were a very talented lot. I saw them often – notably at The Navigation on Stoney Stanton Rd. Numbers such as ‘Tally Man’ – Jeff Beck and ‘Gin House’ – Amen Corner spring to mind."

Trev Teasdel recalls - 
 "Jessica's Theme played the Coventry Arts Umbrella Club, 18, Queen Victoria Road on Friday January 8th  and Friday 19th February 1971 between 10pm and 2am on for the Friday night band nights. I booked them. Jan Gage and Jan Coombs made and photocopied some small leaflets to hand out around town and the gigs were advertised in the Umbrella Newsletters and in the small ads of the Coventry Evening Telegraph."
