Chris Kimber, Nastassja Kaschevsky, Jeanette Saxby, Doug DuggyFresh Smith, Geoff Saxby.

Tony Ham….They used to play Ma Beeton’s in Rye, the only song I remember them doing though is Jilted John.

Hastings Local Band Photos….Yeah, many a gig in there….think it’s the Ghandi restaurant now!

Geoff Saxby…..The Dekorators broke the world record for non stop playing in January 1985 at Becketts Bar in Bexhill, Devonshire Road. 147 hours…

Tony Ham…..Does it still stand and did they play Jilted John?

Nastassja Kaschevsky….Dave Blackman stood in for me on drums……can’t find anything on the internet about it anywhere!

John Bownas… In reply to Richard Peet, Richard – did you ever reach Geoff? I have his e-mail address in Australia if you want it still. drop me a line john@hastingsflyer.com … by the way… they were all right handed (even the drummer despite the kit looking like it is set up for a left-hooker) … the photos have been reversed 🙂 The record still may stand as Geoff tells me it was dropped out of the Guinness categories while they held it…

Pete Ellis… Andy Ellis and Steve Murphy played for the record breaking week. I believed the record was broken. I have the Guinness Book with the Dekorators mentioned. But sadly it’s a very small / basic entry
