Alan Esdaile…. Mick O’Dowd promotion
Mick O’Dowd… Headlights were a brilliant band and I had already promoted them at The Caves( Those were the days!) and was so impressed that I put them on my first Pier Gig. Does anybody have any info or pics of them? I thought they could have gone on to greater things as did another of my promotions, Smeggy & The Cheesey Bits who morphed into King Kurt!
James Sadia… One pound!! blinkin extortion!
Chris Boorman… Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated!
Mick O’Dowd… I know how to rip-’em-off James!
Gavin Martin… Executives- not the Roy Carr (untaggable) band?
Lynn Gale… Hubby dug the above flyer out
Mick O’Dowd… The Executives were a Brighton based band. I believe they were signed to the Attrix label.
John Gale… 42 years ago today, along with an extract taken from my 1978 diary. It’s been edited for bad language. In the afternoon I went down to Tiffer’s House and helped load SSL’s equipment onto the pier for the gig tonight. Arrived with Executives but Headlights didn’t arrive until later. Executives went down really well. Smokestack were brilliant though. Steaming through their set of covers. Tiffer drumming like Keith Moon (who died recently), I lost my voice from singing along, didn’t see Headlights play, was a great night “
Ken Copsey… I guess we still owe you your roadie fee and highly partisan review!
