‘The Drunkards’ were a comedy group with a long and undistinguished history – see Gary Mitchell’s Previous Life. They featured Andy Batchelor, Harry Holland, Graham King and Gary Mitchell. The group currently has no plans to reform.
Check out The Mark Sainsbury Band. Mark was there with them at Henley High and says it all better than they can – the studio version of this track is to die for… and was re-worked by the group for the album ‘I’d Like To Deny That Last Rumour…’
Something ‘new’ for the 40th anniversary in November 2016 was ‘Henley High School Musical’. Gary and Andy both made new contributions, and the book remains available, as is the charity soundtrack CD (see below).
Prior to the expiry of the contract with Glastostoat Inc. in December 2022, all the group’s old recordings were remastered – and some re-envisioned – to create marketable versions of the ‘original’ cassette tapes the lads used to pass around, back in the day (see below); the final album being the aptly named ‘Terminus’.
In June 2023 the Estate Trustees appointed and approved the stewardship of Jack Peterson of Trigger Studios. For details of their work, using AI, please open this PDF: The Drunkards Estate. Gary has contributed, as has Mark Sainsbury, and Andy, Harry and Graham are fully consulted. ‘New’ recordings and remixes are posted on YouTube; and all the albums have been remastered via AI. Some ‘new’ releases and re-releases are already scheduled. Stay tooned…
