The Kult – No Home Today 1969

The Kult’s only single, on CBS Records, 1969. Recorded in Pye #2 Studios in Marble Arch, London in 1969, the A side was written by producer Vic Maile. B side ‘Mister Number One’ was written by Richard Melhuish and Pete O’Driscoll. The Kult were based in the Bexhill-on-Sea area of Sussex, and included Richard Melhuish (guitar), brothers Pete & Mike O’Driscoll (vocals & bass, respectively), and John Hales (drums). Bassist Robert Searle replaced Mick O’Driscoll when he took over management.

Alan Esdaile… Hi Robert, I remember seeing this band a number of times and they were very good. This singles still sounds strong. Did the band or the brothers live in a house near Ninfield and the only way to get to the house was over a field? I think we brought an amp from them once?

Pete Fairless….Yeah, I like it. Did they ever play on the Pier?

Robert Searle….I lived at the O’Driscoll home at Moor Hall Ninfield. The Kult played the pier a number of times.

Andy Knight….Diversion supported Kult, AK Drums, Digger Rosewell Voc, Jeff Peckam Bass and Dai Harding Gtr

Tony Court-holmes….hartnells on hastings seafront next to courts on thursday nights

Alan Esdaile Johnny Mason…I saw them at Hartnells and other places, I was probably only about 15 or 16. The group ‘The Town Council’ manager Harry (father of the drummer Brian ‘Bear’) used to organise coach trips to follow ‘Town Council’ and see other bands in the area. Saw a few bands play in Ninfield.

Andy Knight….I remember TC, Bob Shipway Bass (joined Shaft later), Chris ? Gtr, Pete Robertson (married Gloria) Voc, Bear (Williams?) Drums)

Phil Gill…. really like this Kult song, it has that real trippy 60s thing going on. Nice find.

Rickie….Saw the original guitarist posted on a band from the States that covered the song. Worth checking out! The Underclassmen – No Home Today. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkAaibqvKxA

supplied by Colin Fox & Eastbourne Bands from 1960 on

Colin Fox… The Jazz Caverners formed in Eastbourne in the early 1960’s: L to R Chris Watford Clarinet, Roy Martin Banjo, Ted Bishop Piano, Pete Kitcher Trumpet, Geoff Coates Banjo and 12 String Guitar, Reg Lower Percussion, Brian Towers Tombone/Leader, Ian Scriven Bass.

Jacqueline Marsh… I can’t believe how young Roy looks, he was a lovely man and I have many found memories of him

Chris Watford… Hi ! Sorry to have to correct you, but the Jazz Caverners was a Hastings band, formed out of the remains of the Dolphin Jazzband, also from Hastings, after that band broke up. They were joined by Pete ; Roy ; Ian & Reg from the Eastbourne based Mojo Rhythm Kings. The Dolphin Jazzband had in fact played for over a year at the Dickens Hall in Eastbourne in the late 1950s, and later at other venues in the town.

Jeanette Jones… & Min? Or am I getting my bands muddled too!

Robert Searle… Used to know Ian Scriven

Tim Moose Bruce… Used to see Min with them on sax.

Tony Ball… I remember some great evenings in the Dewdrop.

Kim Tutty… My Dad was Ian Scriven, he passed away in 1983. I remember him Being in the Jazz Caveners, when they were in a parade they were the Expedient Marching band. I do remember Reg Lower, Roy Martin & a gentleman called Min ( he didn’t wear shoes when in a parade) . I would love to see any pictures anyone has of them.

Jeanette Jones… ‘MIn’, rarely wore shoes, over at least 20 years. I remember my 18 year old Son commenting on the condition of Mins bare feet, saying they must have hurt! A character.

Jacqueline Marsh…  I knew Roy Martin well he was a lovely man and worked tirelessly for Polegate and he was a great musician

Tony Court-holmes… my late mum loved them

John Kitcher… Hi Kim, I remember your Dad coming round ours in the 60’s. My Dad is Pete Kitcher

Andy Qunta… Great band! Lotsa fun! I knew Min quite well back in the day. He was quite a character! Talked to Roy Martin a couple of times too. Lovely man!

Kim Tutty… Hi John,  do you have any pictures of The Jazz Caveners or the Mojos as they were previously known, I don’t have many pictures of my Dad in the band & would love to see a copy. Many thanks in advance.

Sarah Harvey… A choice of music on this day in 1969. The Late on the Pier and Toast at the Cobweb.

Andre Martin… The Road, were a local Band but I have no knowledge or memories of the Go Go Dancers on the Thursday Night. I cannot think why anybody would try and run against such a strong show at that with Steve Maxted at the Cobweb, it does not make any business logic.

Nicola Dobson… These were my years at the Cobweb loved it there! Summer of 69 first summer out of school!
