Phil Gill… I still have that T shirt in my drawer. The mullet is long gone, thankfully…

Mick Mepham… I still have mine too Phil but it doesn’t fit any more!!! I’m just a victim of inflation

Joe Knight… Wow Andy Knight (top photo)

RITZ, with John Laidlaw, Neil Cartwright, Martin Stringer,  Andy Knight(Drums) &  Paul Dengate.

John Laidlaw….Eeek!

Paul Dengate… Just thinking, Neil and Andy and I played with two bands that weekend – Chaser and Ritz. Then realised that Garry Blakeley probably played with nearly everyone on the Saturday!

John Beeching… I don’t think he left the stage all day, should have been sponsored for the marathon.

Gilly Johnson… What a great festival it was!

Witch Doctor Club inspired shirt

supplied by Lloyd Johnson

Lloyd Johnson… This is a shirt I designed back in the 80s.The inspiration was The Witchdoctor Clubs Logo used on the Promo Poster for the gigs….

Pauline Hillier… That’s gorgeous Lloyd !!

Tony Powell…

Colin Bell… That’s very cool Lloyd

John Kingdon… As ever, another one of Lloyds wonderful creations.

Mick O’Dowd… That emblem brings back some sad memories. When I lived at home I thought it would be a good idea to recreate this on my bedroom wall! Armed with gloss paint and brush I created what I thought was the best picture that I had ever done, being no artist! Chuffed with myself at such a brilliant portrait . My Dad discovered it a few days later, probably tipped off by my Mum, and he went beserk. I threatened to leave home etc. The sort of things you do when you are a spotty teenager that knows it all. He told me to get rid of it. A few days later he had a heart attack was was taken to hospital! Talk about a guilt trip! I covered the offending pic and wall with polystyrene ceiling tiles to hide it. When I went to see my Dad in hospital and I told him what i’d done he seemed to calm down from his previous reactions. Whether this was due to the medication he was on or what I don’t know. When he came home and saw it first hand he was ok. That image was bad news for me so beware of images that may have a hidden meaning. I was a regular at The Witch Doctor even before I was the required age for membership and still have my membership card with false age on it!

John Wilde… That’s classic Lloyd.
