Pete Fisher… I remember people in the year above me at school going to Bickershaw in 1972 and returning with muddy tales…

Mick Bolton… Bickershaw! I couldn’t believe that this amazing line-up was appearing about 6 miles from my home near Wigan – Captain Beefheart, Grateful Dead, Doctor John, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Family, Kinks, Donovan and more. I’d happily sit for three days in a cold muddy field all over again to watch that lot.

Pete Prescott… My brother Chris was there. It was like the Somme! Rain and mud! I wish I had been able to go to it. One of the organisers was Jeremy Beadle !

Bizarre cover version singles supplied by Barry French

bizarre cover version singles on the Top Six label, The Typhoons, History of The Stones vol 1 and Pinky & Perky doing Bridget The Midget! also football related records from Willie Morgan and Don Fardon. Supplied by Barry French.

Yvonne Cleland… Pinky and Perky! Used to love them so much. Didn’t they end up having a musical spot on the original Sooty and Sweep Show? x

Alan King… don’t play Pinky & Perky 45’s at 78 – you will go stark raving mad

John Scaife…I’ve still got a few of those Top Six & Embassy 45’s

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

Pat Dargan… I was there too. Last Syd Barrett performance. Tony Court Holmes remember Fortes.

Sarah Harvey…..After The Fire – March 3rd 1979 – I loved this band and bought the album ‘Laser Love’ after hearing ‘One Rule For You’ .

Tony May……I actually joined their fan club! Loved the first album and 80F but they started to decline a bit after that. Did you know that I A J Twiddle also released an album? Don’t know what it was like but I remember seeing it once. I’m a bit of a ‘Wild West Hero’ now myself!

Dave Nattress…..”One Rule For You”, truly fabulous. I bought the albums 80F and Laser Love – 1979/1980 and also a 3 CD set, “The CBS Recordings”. “One Rule” is definitely a wonderful track, much of the rest a bit dissappointing.
