The Haft'a Darkks, a band from Hartlepool, entertained local audiences during the mid 1960's. They were a strong influence on most of the local bands who carried the musical torch into the 70's and beyond. The photograph above, taken in 1965, shows bass player Tony Wood; lead guitarist Brian Wheatley; drummer Brian Weegram; rhythm guitarist, Alan Plaice and vocalist Peter Rutter.

This photograph of the Haft'a Darkks shows Alan Plaice, Brian Weegram, Bill Collier, Tony "Woodie" Wood and Pete Rutter.

Brian Weegram managed to salvage this rare photograph of the Haft'a Darkks showing Peter Maunder, Bill Collier, Brian Weegram, Tony Wood and Alan Plaice.
