Bio: "The Next Move" was formed in Christchurch by Ross Taylor, an ex member of "The Raves" and first appeared regularly at "Club Jamal" and later at the "Mecca". Subsequently approached by Prestige Promotions to take up a residency at the "Monaco" in Cathedral Square, the band went on to win Benny Levin's South Island Battle of the Bands and also to back "The Real Thing" at the Civic Theatre. During August 1968 the band travelled to Auckland to appear live on the popular TV show of the time "C'Mon" - the first South Island band to do so. In 1969 the band disbanded, with Les Inwood and Doug Baker going on to form "Chapta", while Dennis Grant went on to play in "The Inspiration"
