John B. Spencer

b. 5 June 1944, Hammersmith, London, Britain, d. 24 March 2002, Hammersmith, London, Britain. An extremely praised songwriter in the rock and roll tradition, Spencer didn’t achieve the industrial achievement his richly different materials deserved. He proved helpful in book submitting before playing single gigs at schools and folk night clubs through the early 70s. In 1974 he produced John Spencer’s Louts with multi-instrumentalist Johnny G (b. John Gotting), Dave Thorne and Chas Ambler. Spencer himself performed lead electric guitar.

Recording agreements were agreed upon and damaged by three brands before Beggars Banquet Information released the music group’s only record.
