Limited edition for Record Store Day 2016!Greasy Bear formed in Manchester in 1969 as a folk/rock outfit and was described as "Manchester's answer to The Grateful Dead." The band soon gained a reputation as a tight and eccentric live act, due to the on stage antics of C.P. Lee (vocals) and Bruce Mitchell (drums). Other band members were Ian Wilson (vocals/guitar), Steve Whalley (guitar) and John Gibson (bass). In 1970, with a collection of songs penned by Lee and Wilson, Greasy Bear recorded nine tracks, hoping to secure a deal with the now highly collectable Philips/Vertigo label. The deal with Philips fell through and the band soon went their separate ways. C.P. Lee and Bruce Mitchell formed Manchester anarchic-satirical rock band Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias. Bruce was also the other half of Factory records duo The Durutti Column. Ian Wilson went on to form Sad Cafe with the late Paul Young and Steve Whalley also played in Sad Cafe and joined Slade for 14 years in 1992 whilst Noddy was in Toyland.
