Biography

RockBoar.com Picture

      Episode Six was a British vocal pop-rock group during the mid 1960s. The band was not well known, but foreshadowed the arrival of Deep Purple in late 1960s. Episode Six was formed in July 1964 by former members of The Lightings Sheila and Graham Carter - Dimmock and Andy Ross and former members Roger Glover, Tony Lander and Harvey Shield of The Madisons.

    In early 1965 Andy Ross left. The band had already checked out Ian Gillan in a group called Wainwright's Gentlemen and now asked him to join.

     New drummer John Kerrison had previously been in The Pirates (with Nick Simper). The band made a start on a debut album but it was never fnished. In June 1969 Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord came to see Episode Six play live in London, and then offered Ian Gillan a job in Deep Purple. Glover helped them out on a studio session and was also asked to join. The pair helped Episode Six fulfil existing bookings while rehearsing with Deep Purple.

     Episode Six carried on for a time with John Gustafson on bass and vocals. Sheila rehearsed with Pete Robinson, John Gustafson and Mick Underwood as a quartet, before they formed the trio Quatermass.
