Peter Fairless… I might have gone to that!

Alan Esdaile… This gig was one of Clive Richardson promotions.

Clive Richardson… Along with Kingdom Come, Wooden Lion had one of the first VCS3 Synthesizers.

Alan Essex… Interestingly (or not) despite living in the East London / Essex borders at the time I sold my VCS3 to a guy in Hastings. A nice chap he was and had seen us play several times at festivals and of course Hastings – unfortunately I’ve forgotten his name. I also sold him one of my Sound City 120 watt valve amps and a 4 x 12 speaker cab. I remember borrowing my dad’s new Mk 3 Cortina Estate to deliver it all to him.

Alan Esdaile… I think it was Clive Richardson.

Roy Weard… Love these pictures . There are so few of them from the original Wooden Lion – amazing stuff. That was such a fun band. Thank you for posting them.

Martin Richter… (Crazy Lizzard) – not *that* crazy – they should have turned it up to eleven !

Saskia Wesnigk-Wood… My little Ray Wood of sunshine..

That Legendary Wooden Lion… Tony’s name spelled wrongly and it was Johnny Lyons on bass guitar!

Steve Allen… I remember that.
