Pete Fairless…..I’m in shock! These belong in the museum, anyway. What a great bit of social history. Not one over eighteen, I’ll bet!

Joe Knight…..looking good Alan!!!!

Eve Neuke….How many nights did I spend there as a foreign 16-year-old student!

Jim Breeds….Whatever happened to Go-Go girls? 🙁 Gosh, Tramps. I didn’t go there very often but that’s another memory bank nudged.

Mick O’Dowd….They went! Always remember you playing Van McCoy’s The Hustle and I have never heard it sound better than at Tramps!

Jeanette Jones……Great memories:)

Peter Pursglove…..That was my last Venue with Paul Casson RIP , we used to pack them in there

Mick O’Dowd….I remember both of these well. Not very large attendences but Chicory Tip did hand out some cheap bubbly at midnight!

Titus Luxor… Just been listening to Chicory Tip. Some good stuff. Some songs sound really dated (of course) but a very interesting band especially with the Giorgio Moroder element.

Gill Harrod… Shirley, did we go to these? I know I did, I think it was with you and Eileen!

Jan Warren… ………. and, again, Rubber Band are supporting act!! – we got to know them really well as my hubby was resident DJ in the hotel before it became “Scalliwags”, and he was like a “roadie” to MUD when they played at “Dreamland” in Margate – I remember “Rubber Band” well, they released a single called “Moonwalker”, the singer (Dave?!) was very “Bowie-type” and I think they lived in Forest Row (near East Grinstead) in Kent, I remember us driving them home after a gig??!! – has anyone got any pics or news of Rubber Band?? – I’d love to know??!! 🙂 xx

Andre Martin… When we first signed the group they were known as Black Raven and from Forest Row – I will see what cuttings I have in the archive and forward to you.

John Coleman… I was there! That was a long time ago! Utterly brilliant bands on the Pier! Will never forget !

Tony Pettifer… We were from Forest Row we were Black Raven before Andre & Paul had us change names.

Matt Thomas….you still going to the gym? LOL

Yvonne Cleland….Bring back the hair!

Mick O’Dowd….Thank goodness you’ve ditched the haircut(like most of us from that period)!

Tony May…..Great pics and I expect great memories for you. The Brian Jenner mentioned above – was he the one who went on to record with ‘Talisman’? If so I often see him on the bus – we have spoken loads of times about their ‘Sounds In Our Minds’ single and LP. Both of those would be rarities now…
