John Alexander Wilde… I was at the Be Bop gig and Bill Nelson turned my head around. Be Bop gig was excellent.

from 1975 – Be Bop Deluxe on the Old Grey Whistle Test Show

Dave Nattress….Saw Be Bop Deluxe at Eastbourne Congress (of all places) about 1976, “Sunburst Finish” was out – third albumbut I think it was before “Modern Music” was released.  Their support was Krazy Kat – did 2 albums, got of which I’ve got on vinyl, pretty good support band indeed.  I do recall Be Bop were VERY loud and had a very trebly piercing sound.  Be Bop Deluxe – a truly wonderful band.

Andy Qunta… I saw them at the Pier, could have been this gig, or did they play more than once there?

Peter Fairless… Only this once, I think, Andy.

Janine Anne Scott… Omg , worked with Mick, Keith’s Brother, on the Mecca Circuit in the 70s

Andy Maby… I had no idea they were ever on the pier John! (I was 13)

Mike Cramp… Would have gone to that, had I not been 13 at the time.

Phillip Shallcrass…John’s right, it was an excellent gig. Be Bop Deluxe were a damn fine band

Lloyd Johnson… Who were Martin-Casson Entertainments?…were they Local?

John Wilde… Yes local entrepeneurs.
