Mick O’Dowd…Played The Regent as Dj quite a few times. Saw bands there such as Group Therapy (with Robin Farrant of Farrant & Reid wholesalers), Circuit Four, The Humperdinks and others. Didn’t Alan Jensen do regular nights here when you couldn’t get to the bar for bodies and your beer was passed over a human chain so that when it arrived it was only half a pint! That’s rock’n’ roll! T’was a great venue.
Pete Millington… I was a regular there and on many occasions struggled to get a beer. No chance of getting P****d in those days with 10:30 or 11:00 closing time. The Talismen, Spyke, Unabridged Telephone Directory come to mind as groups you can add to your memory banks.
Nigel Ford… Why “Don’t forget your Rolling Stones LP”?
Andre Martin… The reference to the Stones LP must have been because this is April 64 and the Stones had released their first Album about this time, so AJ not wishing to miss the chance for a plug, added to the advert.
