Charlie Ball… Paul Dove playing there is my cousin.I used to go to The Regent, Spyke played a lot there.

Jan Warren… I used to go there in the early 70s, my husband was the regular Saturday night

Andy Qunta… Before Factory was formed, my brother, Tony, & I played in a band called Static Emotion, with Chris Sambrook & Dave Austin. We played downstairs at the Regent every Saturday, between March-May 1970, approx. Good times! Small audiences, as I recall, but a gig’s a gig!
