Tim Whelan

Terrence Baker, a former resident of Sanford Housing Co-op in New Cross, has been in touch and confirmed that when he was living there in the late 1980s, so was Tim Whelan. So we can now add two more great bands to the South East London Hall of Fame.

Tim Whelan was the guitarist in Furniture, who had a hit with their single Brilliant Mind in 1986 and split up in 1990.

He then went on to form Transglobal Underground. Their first single Templehead was a big club hit in 1990, it really reminds me of going to the Whirl-y-Gig at Shoreditch Town Hall. I know the video below is just one of those home-made cut and paste fan jobs from Youtube but at least you get to hear it:
