Default The First Time - Part II

In the "Battle of the Bands", which group were the Beatles up against that night in Aldershot, and who won?

They were up against an unknown London combo called Ivor Jay and the Jaywalkers. The Beatles lost. In fact, they caused such a ruckus afterwards (thanks to brown ale provided by Sam Leach) that the police were called and they were literally thrown out of town!

I read that Ivor Jay and the Jaywalkers didn't turn up, leaving the Beatles to do a 3 1/2 hour set with only a 15 minute break. Does this mean the Beatles won by default?

The next night (because the Beatles were banned from the town) Sam took Rory Storm and the Hurricanes down to play against Ivor Jay. After that, Sam cancelled the last dates, possibly because that night had over 200 guests.

Containing EVERY clue ever found about this conspiracy, Paul is Dead - The Conclusive Evidence will change your mind about this bizarre coverup.

This week, 'Beatles 1' is at No. 23 in the UK Album charts.
This week, 'Wingspan' is at No. 55 in the UK Album charts.

Susan was the first to correctly answer. Sorry Harb. True, Ivor Jay and the Jaywalkers returned the following week. There was no surviving scorecard from this night but since Ivor Jay's group returned, it's probably a sfe bet that the Beatles lost.

Score:
HMVNipper - 3
darkhorse - 2
IreneBeatle - 2
Harbidge - 1
