Phil Thornton….I remember this one ! the plastix had to play on the floor due to the stage being full of gear. They were excellent ! I had forgotten that DL were headlining !!! ( I think it may have been my last gig with them ?) Head On were great of course !!!

Alan Esdaile…..Bizarre to see Soul Fever 78 tour, as that was the tour I put together when I managed Delroy Williams. I can’t remember putting this on at the pier but think we change venue to Emmas(below Queens Hotel) as not enough tickets were sold.

Phil Thornton…..no no no ! not my last gig with Die Laughing ! but it was Mick Mephams first Hastings gig with them ! I must have been there to cheer him on !!!

Mick Mepham…..I think it might have been Phil as I think I joined in late ’77. That billing is a bit dicey though!! Head On were excellent and the Plastix weren’t too shaky either ….

Janine Anne Hemsley… ”Remember this night lol”

John Wilde…  I was there. It was a great night. Plastix won the night.

Phil Thornton… its official …. the Plastix stole the show !!

Peter Fairless… Plastix, a St Valentine’s attraction?

Mike Mitchell… That well known Welshman….Die Laughing

Phil Thornton… …. and no it was not the sex pistols in disguise !

Kev Carlyon… 80p to get in!
