The Changelings - the sound of 1976

A nice slice of South London sound from 1976 - Elevator by The Changelings. I don't know anything about this band, but this was posted on youtube by 'Harry' who used to run a venue in Greenwich in the 1970's called "Harry's Bar" at the Bricklayers Arms. He says:

'The Changelings were a young South London based band who played a few gigs in Greenwich and Deptford in the 1970s including one at the Albany Empire in Creek Road where they appeared as Spread (after the Giraffe who did the splits and then died, don't ask me why, these were strange days indeed). I once promoted them as a support act to John Cooper Clark at a strike benefit gig at Goldsmiths College in New Cross London. The soundtrack is a rare demo penned by Neil Bonel. The photography is copyright to me and was carried out at the Queen's House, Greenwich'

Anyone know anymore about this band?
