Pink Floyd – Hastings Pier 20th Jan 1968

Supplied by Peter Fairless Bands On Hastings Pier Facebook page.

Terry Huggins…. Syd Barrett’s last ever gig with the band.

Lawrence Ralph… Does, anybody actually remember attending this, i know 50 years ago, and memories being foggy, was it good or bad from vaguest memories?

Dave Weeks… We still don’t know what happened to Beaufords Image! Anyone?

Clive Millard… Yes certainly do, I was a member of the support band, as you mentioned hazy days my thoughts take me be back sitting with the Pink Floyds technicians using an old fashioned projectors with two pieces of glass adding paint colours, then projecting it on to white sheets covering over there amplifiers, bloody magic

Kevin Burchett… Ive got that cutting on my keyring

Raymond Badgery… Yep, was there that day. We, girlfriend and I, Lived in South London at the time and used to go the Witch Doctor club in St Leonards most Saturdays for dancing? Well that Saturday the club was shut, surprise, as did not why? But note on door said, club shut and have gone to the pier to see Pink Floyd! So we thought why not! Was cheap, and a great evening from what I remember. Drove back in the early hours to friends in Surrey.

Lawrence Ralph… Thanks for the recollections, Clive and Raymond, also wondered if this was one of the rare 5 man Floyd gigs with David Gilmour, helping keeping it together for a disintegrating Syd. Sitting with the Floyds technicians doing the paint projections, wow!, would love to have been there.

Tony Court-holmes… too young
