Andrew Clifton… Who remembers this bog roll?

Glenn Piper… Unfortunately, yes, I do remember these

Jacqueline Marsh… Ouch yes I do!!

Aileen Mathieson… Tracing paper! Vey rough all it is good for lol!

Peter Brazier… Still got the Blooming scratches after 40 odd years! Devils Work That Stuff! Burn It! Burn It I Say!😂😂😂

Chris Jolly… IZAL The POINTLESS, USELESS, last resort paper..

Mark Gilham…  Invented by a major in the Boer War if I remember rightly..

Eric Harmer… Not Major Bumsore ?

Michael Wilson… A piece of Izal and a comb made a great homemade Kazoo when you were seven

Chris Meachen… Arse polish: totally evil stuff & completely useless..

Ernest Ballard… Ha ha

Terry Har… Tracing paper

Barry Newton… I prefered the Daily Mirror, lol

Judie Struys… We had that at school AND at home. But I did live in Essex.

Mark Randall… You had toilets?!!

Jeanette Jones… Some things are really just best forgotten!

Dave Nattress… Great fun reading this one – Major Bumsore, a real smiler that!! Just what is it about bottoms/nether regions/toilet related things/foul and fruit-some flappy woof woofs, (courtesy Blackadder) poo poo’s and all those things that to us immature guys, (I’m only 64, mental age still 8), so funny. Toilet humour. Even the toilet graffiti artists of old used to put up some funny stuff. Good reading and all that. And the kazoo – dead right. Not much hair now, not needed a comb for years.

Pete Prescott…  Holy smear Batman. Who the he’ll thought this was the best paper to use ??? When we had the first roll of soft paper it was heaven ! Tracing paper. Yes ! Used it for that !

Pete Millington… It polishes rather than removes – yuk

 

SMART Coffee meet No. 37 report

    

 

Our 37th meet. Among the newbies were Sue Jones, Mark Harris and David Miller.  Sue was  talking about her memories of seeing Jimi Hendrix at the Isle Of Wight Festival. Mark & David both from The Likely Lads were reminiscing about their bands Beez Neez, Split Image and others. Mick O’Dowd had with him Phil Spector’s Back To Mono cd box set and the local mod compilation album Uppers On The South Down. Geoff Peckham had a very interesting  Beatles book ‘Revolution in The Head’ and was talking about a skiffle band he recently played with called Lonnigans and featured none other than Rod Davis, an original Quarrymen. Pete Prescott arrived with a bundle of albums and some interesting photos of Cliff Richard from the Time musical. He mentioned that Deep Purple’s Ian Paice lived in Hastings at one stage. Andre Martin and Sarah Harvey were looking forward to their shows on Carnival Radio  and Neil Roberts was talking about future gigs for his band Freak Flag.. Phil Gill had his guitar with him and working out some tunes with Roger Carey. I had with me albums of John Miles, Back Street Crawlers, Breaking Glass and Sharks. This is a small bit of what I can remember, anyone who wishes to add anything you were talking about, then please feel free to do so.

Lucy Pappas… One day I’ll get there! Not that I have any memorabilia, it was all thrown out years ago. Hope you had fun x

Mick O’Dowd… Another goodie Alan. Nice to see more newbies being baptised!

Mark Harris… Thanks chaps, enjoyed some good old reminiscing!!

Tony Davis… Sorry to miss it. There next time

Dave Nattress… I will take a Friday afternoon off work one day and get there!! Great to see the cover of the first Sharks album. Excellent album, not a bad track. Saw them do OGWT when they did World Park Junkies and Snakes and Swallowtails. Got it on vinyl and CD along with the second Sharks album, Jab it in Yore Eye, slightly changed line-up, but another really good album. I didn’t know anyone who knew of the Sharks!

Jan Warren… Hi to Neil Roberts and his band “Freak Flag”, great name, and I was just wondering if you got the name from (the great) Jimi’s lyrics in “If 6 was 9”? – as he mentions a “freak flag”!! – sorry, just wondering

Alan Esdaile… Well spotted Jan. I have not seen them live yet but they do play Hendrix and Cream, so I think you are right.

Jeanette Jones… Sad not to be there Glad it happened, & lots of folk got to enjoy themselves xxx

Iain Cobby… Hi Dave, must meet up with you at the next meeting. I too will take the afternoon off and we can catch up on old Damaris times. Been an interesting year for me.
