On the 04.06.69 in Woodford Green at the Ivy Lodge Club,
Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord turned up to listen to a a group called Episode Six.
Ritchie Blackmore even got up on stage to jam.
"After the show he offered the singer and bassist, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover, a job in Deep Purple. The rest is history.

The Web began as a jazz/blues band, with a style simultaneously related to America’s West Coast groove and UK’s proto-prog movement. Hailing from the British psychedelic scene, their style is often described as atmospheric, moody, melancholy, and dark. The powerful presence of African-American singer John L.

They were regulars at the Ivy lodge Club so much so they were made honorary members.
