Alan Esdaile… Excellent band, loved The Kult.

Robert Searle… Proud to have been a member of The Kult.

Dave Nattress… Kult have been referred to on and off on SMART for a while now and rightly so. Kult were indeed really excellent. I was 16 in 1969, left school that Summer, you did too Jaffa! Saw Kult many times around Bexhill area around that time. Mallet Hall, (London Road traffic lights), The Granville, and best one of all for me, supporting T2 at the De La Warr. Thinking back so long ago, there were of course so very few bands around, especially those playing heavy/progressive rock. This set them apart and it’s a shame they didn’t make it big. When I discovered SMART, one of the bands I hope would come out of the memories was Kult and I’m delighted that we have not only a good few photo’s but also some sound recordings.

Peter Linnett… Used to be part time roadie spent many happy times with them in Brentwood  and Bexhill last saw Peter back earlier 70s at his place in Battle  Sussex
