Spyke – Peter Millington, Twiggie (Vocals), Terry Chedzoy, Ian Williams.

Martin Richter… Ian Williams – lol

Peter Millington… Spyke converted to Jinks in 1974 shortly after Twiggie left. 40 years on. We did a few Gigs at the Regent – The seafront was alive with good music then – I miss those days at the Regent/Scalliwags, Alexandra, Witchdoctor/Cobweb, Pier, Mr Cherrys etc. etc.

Madeline Joyce Morton… Miss, Chris Sayer those were the days at the Alex x

Robert Searle… Great photo. Played at The Regent with Easy Street and remembering seeing Shaft play there with the late Dave Shaw on vocals.

Jon McCallion… Nice picture Pete.

Joe Knight… great!!!

Andy Qunta… I remember all those bands! I remember playing at the Regent with Factory too!

Pete Millington… The above picture was taken at the Regent Hotel in 1973 – The advert is for SPYKE in 1968 which was this line-up, although taken at the White Rock Theatre on 12 January 1968. The KB Annual Dance with Bob Miller and the Millermen – Great memories!

Janie Lowe… What happened to Twiggie

Pete Millington… She still lives locally. She can be seen in black top hat and black uniform in the old town drum procession eg Carnival march

Charlie Ball… Always finished with Alright Now, in the Alex

Pete Millington… You’ve a better memory than me and I was playing it!

Pete Millington… The fourth line-up of SPYKE playing at the Queens Hotel 10th April 1971 – Looks like we’ve just been told “Trust me lads – the cheque’s in the post”

Chris Baker… I thought I was the only one with a daft haircut in those days! 😁

Pete Millington… We all had ’em along with everyone else!
