John Laidlaw…..Yup, the Bulverhythe. Pete and I had to look serious because we were wearing dark shirts. The rest were allowed to smile.
Tim Moose Bruce…..The pub was the Bulverhythe. The band I was in at the time (The Blind Bats) supported them a couple of times there. One of the gigs if I recall, was a fundraiser for the victims of the Herald Of Free Enterprise ferry disaster. The other band that night was local band PLC
