Memories from Gary Swain
"I spent many evenings in the early 80's watching the Pink Umbrellas. I know they recorded an album for
Ready Steady Go that was never released but a while ago I heard from Steve Edgson's formaer wife that he has a copy of it. I'd love to get hold of a copy. It would be a shame never to hear Lucy's Room again."

From Pete Chambers - Pop into the Past
"1981 Paul and Steve moved formed The Pink Umbrellas.The band began as a duo, eventually blossoming in to a fully-fledged band, with Paul taking on the lead vocals. Paul's love of the psychedelic was much in evidence with tracks like Raspberry Rainbows and Mind of a Child. It was around this time Paul became the house producer at Coventry’s Cabin Studios.
In 1984 the Pink Umbrellas (or The Attic Dressers as they were then known) split and Paul concentrated on production and engineering at Cabin studios."
