Cheryl White… What an amazing gig to have been at. I’m currently curating an exhibition about Poly Styrene. Does anyone have anything of X-Ray Spex on the pier?

Andy Gunton… I’ve no doubt you’re already aware of this, but just in case, Poly is mentioned in this: http://www.thestinger.org.uk/article/532c522180a367948bda9ac2#.WFrPZbGcbyI

Chris van Rock… I would love to see that exhibition about Poly. I have wrote my first novel ( the Zombies of St. Leonard’s ) with a character based on her and a copy of the book has been sent to her daughter by her friend. I can deliver or post and all monies are for St Michael’s Hospice in memory of Poly … the inspiration and memories of growing up with punk music

Chris van Rock… Interestingly the Slits played on 2 clash tours. Always a great band.

Paul Mingham… Took a charter coach there, it picked us up in Newhaven. Ride was fun, punk rock sing along all the way there! Great gig electric atmosphere. Oh to be 17 again!

Tim Brooder… How I wish I wasn’t 7 at the time!
