Garry Spry; “In May 1967, after returning from six months in the U.K with the Twilights, who I was managing, I was approached by keyboardist extraordinaire Tweed Harris who had just left ‘The Clefs’. Tweed wanted me to start a new band for him. Having seen the rise of two super groups in the UK ‘Cream’ and ‘Traffic’, I set about doing the same in Australia. We recruited Rod Stone, lead guitarist with The ‘Librettos’ and ‘The Play- boys’, who was between jobs. We quickly recruited drummer Geoff Bridgford, from ‘Steve and the Board’ and then Jamie Byrne, the bassist with ‘Running Jumping Standing Still’. I heard that Peter Williams had just left ‘Max Merritt & His Meteors’ and I quickly snaffled him as the lead singer”, and so was born  ‘The Groove’ - Australia’s first Supergroup.
