Ray tells us: "In 1968 we played all over Coventry but had a virtual residency at the Navigation, Stoney Stanton Road, in the summer of '68. We believe we were the first band in Coventry to use heavy makeup on stage, and the first band in Cov to use a custom built ‘Strobe’ (made by Don O'Brian - manager) comprising a record deck, a 150 watt bulb and a cardboard disk. It worked like a dream and was superior to later 'electronic' commercially available models!"


Memories from Ray Borkowski from Rex Brough site

"I'm Ray Borkowski, former rhythm guitarist of 'Journey of a Lifetime' which you call Jolt!
The group played many venues around coventry 1968 - 1969. It was at the Navi that we virtually held a residency. It was there that we tried out the first ever strobe used in Coventry. Our manager Don cobled one together using a huge bulb a carboard disk and a record player! It worked to great effect and was much better than later electronic models.
We used to hang out with Peppermint Kreem and other bands."

Ray was later in Sasp'rilla - a 70's duo with Mark Rider (now of  Skawaddy)

Terry was later bass player with The Chris Jones Aggression
