Terry New in his own words about THE CORONETS/ THE LIVELY SET:
"...the Coronets ... was formed to back a TV actor called Chris Sandford who was then appearing regularly in a popular Soap Opera on UK TV - "Coronation Street". In the programme he was a singing window cleaner who wanted to become a recording artist.
He made a record called "Not Too Little Not Too Much" which was quite sucessful at the time and got quite high in the UK Charts.
He needed a group to back him for live gigs and so the Coronets were formed.
The group was David Glasspool (bass), Norman Hale (keyboards/vocals), Tony Cartwright (guitar/vocals), Terry New (guitar/vocals) and Mitch Mitchell (drums).
Mitch was a friend of Chris Sandford, they met at an acting college.
The Coronets never recorded under that name and when the Chris Sandford & The Coronets gigs ended we recorded as The Lively Set with Chris Sandford as our recording manager.

Mitch left the group and joined Georgie Fames Blue Flames and we continued with a new drummer Eric Dillon.
After The Lively Set split Eric joined Noel Reddings Fat Mattress band.
I would like to track down Eric I'm sure he is still playing he also played with Savoy Brown."
