where are they now?

Via TYWKIWDBI, we are treated to a brief profile of the schoolboy band known as The Hectics, formed by five pupils of an English boarding school called St. Peter’s in Pamchgani, outside of Bombay (Mumbai) and active from 1958 through 1962.  One might recognise at least the centre lead vocalist, guitarist and pianist as Farrokh Bulsara, whom later adopted the name Freddie Mercury (*1946 – †1991, previously). Far left is Derrick Branche who had starring roles in My Beautiful Laundrette, Blake’s 7 and Father Ted Mysteries.
