Andre Martin…..Jerome Tait in action with Whisky Mac around 1967/68 – thanks to Graham Bradley who has been sending me some great pictures, that bring memories flooding back for all sorts of reasons.
Alan Esdaile…..This is Tich Turner.
Andre Martin…..I do not know why – but that was the name that Tich wanted to use on the publicity we put out in late 68 – part of the image no doubt – all of this is great stuff.
Phil Gill…..Jerome! I’d forgotten about that!

Martyn Baker… A very young Tich Turner

This is a promotion photo for Martin Casson Agency, taken at Rock A Nore Road. I think the car belonged to the photographer?

Nick Shute… wow!! a sound city pa and the hofner bass….looks like a lot of my old gear up there!!!
Len Smith… Colin Pierce, Jim Beadle, Andy Knight, Bob Shipway, Dave Shaw
Ross Holter… Great band
Mark Gilham… Is that a Marcos?
Ralph Town… Yes Mark.
Robin Hughes… (To Mark Gilham) – that certainly is a Marcos and that presumably means that the photographer in question was John Sweet who was based at the top of London Road in Silverhill
Mark Gilham… Great British car, as was the TVR.
Robert Searle… Dave Shaw on the right
Robin Hughes… A photo very similar to this, taken at same time but different expressions and head positions, appeared in the Hastings and St.Leonards Observer in the Spring of 1972 above an article about the Carnival Queen’s contest. The subject line of the photo said ” Shaft, the up-and-coming pop group who will be at Bonita’s on Monday when the Carnival Queen contest will be decided”.
