SMART meet 12 report. Excellent get together today. I was expecting it to be on the quiet side as a number of regulars are on holiday or involved in the beer festival. However it was packed and great to see some new faces including Phil Little, Mike Curtis, Graham Belchamber, Archie Lauchian and Lol Cooksey who came down from Ramsgate to join us. Talk was about Factory to gig, photos of The Pullbacks, Daisy, Hastings Beach Concert line up, Andre Palfrey-martin Happy Ballroom hub talks, Archie Lauchian making a new document on the history of the pier, Bonitas, Spyke, Pebbles Club, Ray McVay, Scalliwags, Carnival FM, Mott Crew Talk, Nice Enough to Eat Island sampler from Pete Prescott and loads and loads more. Thanks to everyone for the support.

Three quarters of the original Factory line-up reunited after ……… years!!!
Yvonne Cleland….Marvellous! What a great SMART meeting yesterday! Buzzing! And news of FACTORY reforming! Superb.
Andy Qunta…..Hope to be standing there with my fellow band-mates again one of these days – and hopefully on a stage! Bit of a commute from California to England, but worth it! Signed, the 4th quarter!
Mick O’Dowd…..Another top drawer meet. The amount of talented folk there is expanding fast. Nice to see the new faces such as Lol Cooksey and Archie (The film maker). If you haven’t tried these meets make sure you make an extra effort next time as it will be worth it. If you’re apprehensive about coming along I can assure you you will not be ignored and you will be treated as an equal at all times. Here Alan makes sure of this! No seriously this was probably my favourite meet so far!
