Sarah Harvey… Pop Scene from December 8th, 1973. Two more bands I am not sure have been mentioned yet…. Penny Black playing at The Yorkshire Grey and ‘King Rod’ playing at The Regent Hotel (Remember seeing a few bands play live there.

Dave Nattress… The Prisoners – Andy Leaney, (RIP), Robin Heggie, (RIP), Mick Bridgeland and myself had our first gig at the Yorkshire Grey, God knows when – about 1979 and the abiding memory is of Robin’s disgust when looking around the stage pre-gig/soundcheck to plug in some amps to find the landlord’s dog had left a really big curly-whirly cumberland sausgage there.  I can see Robin’s face now!!  Real rock n roll moment that one. Funny the things you remember!!

Dave Weeks… The first gig I attended at the pier I think.

Andy Qunta… Both great bands! Saw them many times, & I’m pretty sure Factory was on the same bill with them more than once!

Tony Court-holmes… forgot about king rod
