Chris Baker… Ha! Played there once in the early days of The Town Council! I remember learning My Generation especially for the gig.

Robert Searle… Wow what a great picture

Virginia Davis… Whereabouts in Old London Road was it and when did it close?

Alan Esdaile… It was virtually opposite the China Parade, not sure when it closed.

Colin Fox… This must have been taken a long time ago. Rev and Paul, (who Robert Searle and I lodged with in the early 70’s) look very young.

Mick O’Dowd… Deep Purple (Hastings) played there & I did discos there. The building is still there Virginia Davis. It is the long one-storey building with the parking space in front.

Virginia Davis… Thanks. The one that was a car or bike club for a while

Mick O’Dowd… GT Strokers were an excellent band

Chris Baker… As were the Town Council, allegedly! Not sure what year this was though. Thanks Alan for confirming 1967, in which case we probably weren’t that good then!

Alan Esdaile… I thought you were a Great band Chris and every gig was packed.

Andre Martin… What next – The Kit Kat Club and the world

Ken Copsey… Great picture.
