Anyone remember a great local band called Tiah Teek? asks Andy Ives

Andy Ives… Anyone remember a great local band called Tiah Teek and what happened to them? I saw them a few times back in the 80s/

Martin Richter… they were from bexhill – played down The Crypt a few times. i’m desperately trying to remember who was in them – bexhill bands all seemed to overlap! crocodiles/salvation sunday, jez gillett’s bands, etc – but i *think* Matt from Vicious Minds was involved ….? but could be very wrong – one of them had curly dark hair and glasses! They did a charity pop quiz against the Rythm Method!

Steve Mann… Gary King was the drummer. Rags lead singer I think. At least one of their songs – Changing is on YouTube. Saw them at Crypt, Diplocks in Eastbourne and Dingwalls Camden (they ran a coach)

Martin Richter… lol – had it my head that Gary was the drummer (wore a click-track) – i was on that coach to dingwalls (sunday – audition night) – had a very brief chat with Lemmy at the bar !

Garry King… Well that’s me on the right, yep Martin ha ha thanks for that comment mate although i just found this site. Actually I hooked up with Colin on the left again last year and we are revamping some of the old demos from tape which has been great fun. This was my first pro band, a great start that should have really taken off I think as should have many of the bands in East Sussex, great times, hit me up if you like and you can see what I have been up to since then

Martin Richter… hi Gary – i’ve been on your website many times – are you still in the States ?

Andy Ives… Were always my favourite local band back then. Should have made it big imo

Mick O’Dowd… Here’s some blasts from your past Dave Arnold. You are listed as “Treatments” Should you be called DR Dave? What are “Treatments”?

Dave Arnold… A little bit of magic in the mix mick:)

Alan Esdaile… Good find with the cassette Mick. I know Dave Kent has talked about multi storey car park before.

Mick O’Dowd… I used to work with Dave Kent at Music Master where I obtained these two cassettes. I also frequented Keith Rodways’ Unnormality Record shop in High Street . I couldn’t ever understand why. It sold RECORDS! DOH! Aah the legendary Multi Storey Car Park. I think this is one of the best names for a tune ever!

Keith Rodway… The track list seems to come from another tape. It has Monster Mash on it! Does anyone have this?

Dave Kent… is that Dave Arnold’s typing? A couple of those titles remind me of my beloved Vox Jaguar

Mick O’Dowd… That’s how my copy came/is. All importantly is both lists name the ultra famous MSCP

Keith Rodway… That’s curious Mick, as the typed sheet has tracks not on the tape. Quite a few tracks by Dave Kent and Ges Waite too. Intriguing. Wish my memory was better!
