Founded in 1960, The University of Sussex-one of the then 'new universities'was set in parkland near the village of Falmer, halfway between Brighton & Lewes. In the autumn term of 1963 there were plenty of musicians amongst the new intake of students and within a couple of months they had grouped themselves into 2 main units:a piano trio and a pop band. Surprisingly there were not enough drummers to go around and as a consequence GRANT SERPELL played in The JAZZ TRIO and The BASKERVILLES. Affinity had its origins when 3 science students-pianist LYNTON NAIFF (studying mathematics), drummer GRANT SERPELL (studying chemistry) & double bass player JOHN MORTON 'NICK' NICHOLAS (studying physics and philosophy) formed the US Jazz Trio. One year later MO FOSTER (studying physics) who had originally played bass guitar in his school band-The TRADEWINDS, and who had briefly played double bass with the short lived US Jazz QUARTET- adapted to playing drums for the trio when Grant Serpell Graduated.
