Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages on the 2 'I' coffee bar float at the Soho carnival, on July 14th 1960.
Left to right: Prince Monolulu, a racing tipster, Dave Lord Sutch, Vic Clark and Barrie Taylor aka "Whip", hanging the buffalo horns.

Barrie Taylor aka "Whip" played bass occasionally for Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages after they had supported The Johnnie Reb's at the Clay Pidgeon, about July 1960, and as they had no bass player at the time. He also used to freelance at the 2 I's Coffee bar where he often sat in with The Savages

Pete Newman:
"We have a bass player at one time called "Whip"... He was in fact Whip Taylor who played with a band called the Johnny Rebs at the same place we did gigs in, The Clay Pigeon Pub, near Harrow. The drummer of that band was none other than the now world famous Jim Marshall inventor of the Marshall amplifier!"

At the Soho's annual street parade they were on their own float. Vic Clark: "Sutch virtually 'stole the show' as he was jumping off the float and going crazy amongst the crowd lining the streets. This event received media publicity."
