Who remembers ‘Swift Half’ band asks Clive Bendon-Hill

I was the bass player and harmony singer with Swift Half in 80’s and 90’s with Paul Burton on guitar and harmonies, Chris Sayer lead guitar, singer and leader of the band. We also had a brilliant electric banjo player whose name I think was Paul and he came from Bexhill but I cannot remember the drummer’s name. I have a video of Swift Half at the Tower Pub where we played one night but cannot remember the date! I believe there is an album of Swift Half which I found a track from on YouTube today. Any info you can give me on this please and on the Hastings Swift Half band in their day when all the afore-mentioned were together? If anyone else remembers the band in its day, can they get in touch? By the way, apart from the VHS video I have I also have copies of all the lyrics that Chris hand wrote for all the songs we did together! Please do come back with any info, photos or recordings – just to bring back memories and the fun we had! Thank you so much! Clive

Paul Dengate… Could have been Paul Bishop on banjo

Alex Knight… Paul, was about to say this!! I think he lives in France now!! Paul Bishop was this you?? Maybe Gary on drums??
