In 1965 he returned to South Africa and formed the 004’s. Brian Gibson and Jack Russell had been members of the Victors, who backed French artist Teddy Raye on tour. When the band broke up Gibson joined the Laurie Jay Combo and Russell got a job as production manager with Vox. Soon they joined the 004’s.
