Sarah Harvey…..Here is a really good video about the group some of which was filmed in 1973. It tells the story of the band and a reunion in 2007 which was produced as a documentary for the BBC

Alan Esdaile….I used to see Pete Kirtley from Global Village play with Liane Carroll at the Filo. Flying Gnome disco was Chris Cornford. Anyone in contact with him?

Mick Mepham…..Another load of bands I missed, doooooohhhh!!!!

Clive Richardson…Global Village were excellent. I always believed that the above photo was taken in Hastings old town. Anyone confirm or deny?

Mick O’Dowd…..Found these pics of Global Village….

Kev Towner…  Well apparently Seagull Coaches were based in Blackpool, although that scene in the background is rather reminiscent of that farm on The Ridge just before the Harrow Junction.

Alan Esdaile… Thanks Kev, I know where you mean. Could be in the coach broke down on the way to the pier?

Ric Hool… In 1996 Peter Kirtley ex of Global Village was working with a poet pal of mine, Tom Pickard. Peter stayed at my house one time when he was in Wales with Tom. Peter was, I believe, living in Southwold at that time and had just released his excellent Bush Telegraph CD Liane Carroll (keyboards), Steve Lamb (bass), Gregg Leppard (drums)
