Al and all,

They did not make their first public appearance, neither did they change their name from Farm to Oils or anything like that.

The story goes something like this: on Dec 10, 1977 the band decided to give up their part-time jobs and concentrate on their music. This might also have been the date when they decided to take up Gary Morris as a 6th member? As a coincidence it happens to be Gary's birthday as well.

Damien please confirm/correct
