Patto: Dingwalls, London

Dave Laing, Sounds, 31 May 1975

BEFORE THEY split up in 1972, Patto had the reputation of being a "Musicians' band". Which made them feel good but didn't pay for life's little luxuries like rent and food. So off they went, Mike Patto to tour with Spooky Tooth, the others (Ollie Halsall, Clive Griffiths, and John Halsey) to join the pool of London musicians who tend to be involved in the more interesting recording and performing projects.
