I was hoping to find some songs featuring two of the known existing Sola MkI's - Ant's "System MKI" and Stu's early three 0C75 Veroboard MKI

System is a difficult band name to search. I tried system band, system music, system London, system 60's.
Could "system" possibly be the guitarists nickname or perhaps the name of a studio, club, or backline company? Funny thinking an original MK1 being part of some Dub Reggae sound system in the 1970's / 1980's!

Does anyone know the history of Stu Castledine's early MKI?

Probable MKI action and lots of Dearmond vol/tone pedal stuff too.

This could be a MKI, but it could also be something later like a MKI.5...

The System was essentially just a school band. From small amount of info available about them there's nothing about any recording being done. We might see or hear it through former System guitarist Ricky Gardiner in Beggars Opera. Although, given he moved away and the winner, Chris Patefiled, still had the pedal till Ant got it, it would seem the pedal stayed with Chris.
