Review from The Guardian The Observer by Molloy Woodcraft
live from Brixton 2004...
Leigh Wieland-Boys… Red Right Hand is by far my favourite Nick Cave track!
Andy Gunton… Review in The Stinger by Andy Gunton…
Darren Johnson… Fascinating – I’d assumed bands had stopped playing the pier long before that
Steve Amos… One of the great gigs!
Jan Warren… He does some really weird, dark and brilliant stuff, love him! xx
Pete Cunningham, William Powell and Alan Turner
Ian Quinnell… Alan Turner aka AlBear- now there’s a face I’ve not seen for over 40 years. Used to work with him at Rediffusion, on the Ponswood estate. What became of him?
Barry Newton… I was wondering the same when I saw his photo
Paul Huggett… Haven’t seen Will in ages, still around here somewhere. Alan lives in Cornwall now.
Mick O’Dowd… One of the original “good guys” is Will. Nice bloke and good drummer!
Barry French… Pete Cunningham worked in Mullet Smith music shop when it first opened in Normans Road. I believe he was also in a folk duo with Paul Dengate. I never got to hear Greasy Trucker but I remember Will Powell being very excited about the project.
Allan Osbourne (prev Turner)… Greasy Trucker was a short lived band but it was certainly a lot of fun as I remember. Peter Cunningham was a paramedic as I recall and last I am aware was living in Rye. Will Powell had always lived in Hastings and had played in several different bands in the area. As for myself, well it was the early seventies and just about everyone I knew at the time seemed to be in a state of flux moving from one band to another. My own history is no different having been in Sam Tripp, Arktuss, and Greasy Trucker. I think the most interesting gig we ever did in Trucker was probably Bonitas where Pete and myself finished up on our backs playing on the floor and breaking guitar strings like they were going out of style. Lets just say it was an interesting night. I haven’t seen Pete or Will since the demise of Trucker back in the early seventies but would be interested to hear of their whereabouts if at all possible. I now live in south Devon near a town called Seaton and have been here for the last twenty years.
