Post 479 - Owen Yateman's Mob - Ice Cream - Red Eye

Owen Yateman, a Torquay (Victoria) legend who for decades, it seemed, had his jazz band at the Torquay dance every Saturday night through summer. Yateman played a dominating trombone. In May 1970 Yateman released this single for Fable Records here for you to download “Ice Cream” b/w “Red Rye” (FB-006). Other musicians on this recording are John Hughes trumpet, Owen Yateman trombone, Mike Longhurst  clarinet, Russ Sheridan panio, Don Standing banjo, Geoff Thompson , Paul Ludowyk bass  and Ian Coots on drums. In 1974 Owen formed “Yateman's Big Fat Brarse”, other than that there’s not much info out there but like I have said before maybe someone out there from the band or recording session may enlighten us.
