Chris Baker… Ha! Played there once in the early days of The Town Council! I remember learning My Generation especially for the gig.
Robert Searle… Wow what a great picture
Virginia Davis… Whereabouts in Old London Road was it and when did it close?
Alan Esdaile… It was virtually opposite the China Parade, not sure when it closed.
Colin Fox… This must have been taken a long time ago. Rev and Paul, (who Robert Searle and I lodged with in the early 70’s) look very young.
Mick O’Dowd… Deep Purple (Hastings) played there & I did discos there. The building is still there Virginia Davis. It is the long one-storey building with the parking space in front.
Virginia Davis… Thanks. The one that was a car or bike club for a while
Mick O’Dowd… GT Strokers were an excellent band
Chris Baker… As were the Town Council, allegedly! Not sure what year this was though. Thanks Alan for confirming 1967, in which case we probably weren’t that good then!
Alan Esdaile… I thought you were a Great band Chris and every gig was packed.
Andre Martin… What next – The Kit Kat Club and the world
Ken Copsey… Great picture.
Cliff Wootton… ‘m pretty sure that bass guitar is a Supersound bass made in Hastings. See Guy Mackenzie’s guitar collection site (https://www.theguitarcollection.org.uk/…/supersound…/) for more details. Company history here (https://www.supersound.org.uk) with details of their amps.
Guy Mackenzie… Thanks for your email Cliff… yes this is a Supersound bass and a rare picture of one too! Really interesting! Although I do have a picture of the one owned by Brian Davis of Dave Edmonds band, the Raiders in about 1963.
