Flintlock (musical group)

Flintlock were a 1970s pop group from Essex, England. Its members were Derek Pascoe (vocals), Mike Holoway (drums/percussion), Jamie Stone (bass), John Summerton (guitar) and Bill Rice (keyboards).

The group began under the name The Young Revivals but after two years changed their name to Flintlock. They came to national attention in the mid-Seventies through regular appearances on the British children's TV programmes You Must Be Joking and Pauline's Quirkes (hosted by actress Pauline Quirke). Flintlock also appeared on programmes such as Blue Peter, Magpie and Top of the Pops. They also hosted their own programme, 'Fanfare'. Mike Holoway also became known as an actor in the children's TV drama programme The Tomorrow People, in which Flintlock made a single appearance in the Series 5 episode The Heart of Sogguth. They had one British Top 30 single, Dawn, in the summer of 1976.

A one-off reunion concert took place in 2007.
