Forthcoming Album on Shelflife Records Features Terry Bickers on Guitar Produced by Ian Catt (St Etienne/Field Mice etc)...The Proctors were formed by Gavin Priest in 1993 following the demise of The Cudgels in which Gavin had been lead guitarist. The Proctors also feature ex-Cudgels Adrian 'Josef' Jones and Stephen Davies on drums and bass guitar respectively. The Line-up was completed by Gavin's sister Christina who shared vocal duties with Gavin. The group recorded a well received demo tape which led to Albert of Sunday Records (USA) offering to release a 7" single by the band. 'The Baby Blue EP' was released in 1993. The single sold well and impressed by Gavin's songwriting skills, Albert asked The Proctors to commence work on an album. Around this time Stephen took some time out, and the band settled down as a three piece. In 1994 the Moon Song 7" was released and various appearances were made on Sunday Records compilations over the next three years until in 1996 the album 'Pinstripes and Englishmen' was released. Again the record sold well and the band had begun to attract a small but loyal following, even though they have never played a live show. In 1997, Gavin's involvement with other musical projects left little time to concentrate on The Proctors and the group decided to take a break. Following the release on Cloudberry Records in 2009 of an EP of unreleased songs, The Proctors started work on some new recordings. The new songs will be posted once they are ready. The original line-up of Gavin, Adrian and Stephen are working on the new material, but unfortunately due to now living in Scotland, Christina is unable to join them.
