Dave Windmill recalls:~ Carl's Fables was formed during 1966 when myself,on lead guitar, joined up with Pete Bell (bass) and Johny Oates (rhythm guitar). Doug Powdrill joined us not long after on drums. Later we poached Carl Abrams (vocals) from a band called Chips, and Carl's Fables was born. Like many other bands we toured locally, mainly the Nottingham area, for several years. I left the band in 1969 but the band continued as a foursome, although I'm not sure for how long. Carl sadly passed away last year(2015). I lost touch with Pete and Johny but I still see Doug occasionally.
