SPENCER GIBB is another Gibb who's been very active in music the
past couple of years too: In 1994 he
recorded a number of demos for a possible album with his group.
54 Seconds Songs like: Days Like These, Amber, Competition, Falling, Crazy Old World, Talk To My Angel,
What Have You Done, Sad And Blue, Miami Blues, Water Into Wine, all written by Spencer himself.
In 1995 there came demos like: Seeing Blue, Hoping It Won't Be Long and Let Me Down Easy, again all
composed by Spencer who at that time was appearing under the name Lez Spencer [This is an error, he in fact appear under the name of Jez Spencer - not 'Lez' - J.] in Austin and
surroundings and sold a self- made CD-R: Four Track Mind, at shows.
In 1998 he had his own group called: 54 Seconds. The group members of this band are: Spencer Gibb
( vocal and guitar), J. J. Johnson (drums, vocals), Stewart Cochran ( piano, synthesiser, keyboard, vocal),
Glenn McGregor (bass).
54 Seconds They already have become a rather popular band in the Austin area and they play every week at the Speakeasy at 412 Congress Avenue, (Austin, Texas) so if you're in the neighbourhood just pay them a visit!!
The first CD of the group is called: E.P. with songs like: Strange Day, It Got You Thinking, Wanted,
Jaded, Early Warning, Photograph, Sell It To A Girl, Nashville, Foolish Me, Sometimes.
Spencer's vocals do not sound especially like his uncles and dad and the music isn't especially Bee Gees
either. They call their style: alternative/pop/rock/psychedelic and they were influenced by people like
Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd and Prince.
