Another successful afternoon and with the sun at last shining, it was good to see some new people. Thanks to everyone who turned up. Having taken along samples of a potential gig guide review pamphlet , talk was about what pubs and cafe’s to get on board and how to proceed to the next level. What happened to ‘Ultimate Alternative Mag’, ‘The Entertainer’ etc. Lots of chat about Stallion reforming for a one off gig at the Big Green Cardigan festival. Phil Gill showed some rare photos of Stallion at the Marquee Club and anyone remember when they played ‘Bonitas Club’ when Tich was singing, promoted by Trevor Bolton from Disco 45 magazine? Lots of memories about Steve Demetri. Kast Off Kinks at the White Rock but missing the Davies’s, Mini bus idea to gigs, vinyl selling again. Barry’s Blog, Barry Taylor has written a blog which I will post here seperately. Also talk about the clubs ‘Lazy Bones’, ‘Astral’, White Rocks Baths & The Fountain. Apparently ‘Pretty Things have played Falaisle Hall in the 60’s with Ted Crouch Band supporting! Glen Matlock, Stranglers, Gary Moore, Roger Daltrey memories of playing the pier, Jools Holland series back on tv, Sham 69 coming to Flairz, memories of Monkey Dave at the Hi Fi, Beatles Day 14 and more.
