Soho Jets & Factory – 1975



all cuttings supplied by Sarah Harvey

Andy Qunta….Great finds, Sarah! Thanks! Don’t remember the Soho Jets! I remember lugging all our gear down the Caves though! Lugging it down the Pier to the ballroom was a breeze compared!

Bernard Jeffery…. I remember doing caves gigs, the damp atmosphere affected the drums tuning, couldn’t keep a good sound.

Boulder – 1960’s


supplied by Bertie Wiseman


featuring Paul Wiseman , Brian Sedgefield, Tony Barraclough & Mick Kemp.

Yvonne Cleland….Tony used to play with Will in Daisy.

Dave Nattress….The fourth member of Boulder is the drummer – Mick Kemp.  Mick Kemp and Tony Barraclough used to play with both Boulder and Damaris.  Brian Setchfield is still alive and kicking in Bexhill!!  SO, am I for that matter.  At the time, Damaris consisted of Mick Kemp on drums, (Pearl full dimension kit I think), Tony Barraclough on guitar, (Gibson SG), Iain Cobby on Bass, (Fender Precision then Rickenbacker 4001), Paul Durrant on various keys including an Elka Rhapsody and one or more Synthesisers and myself on AKG Mikes and HH PA,

John Martyn & ? – Beach Concert

Yvonne Cleland….That looks a bit like Monkey.

Chris Baker commenting on John Martyn…..Was never a big fan. He lived just up the road from me in Cobourg Place. However, Bev Martin was an angel. An amazing voice that never got the limelight it deserved. I played with her a couple of times and she was one of the sexiest jazz / blues singers I’ve ever known. I always swore he copied my Watkins Copycat techniques!.

John Wilde…..John was a brilliant guitarist with a unique technique. In life he was a violent angry man capable of a heartfelt sensitivity when he performed. I worked for him for two years touring europe. Rock on John. Beverley is super talented and still playing. She is a beautiful woman whose career was cut short by pregnancy and Johns refusal to allow her to work. She lives in Hove. She has a website which you can subscribe to. A wise lady.

Alan Esdaile….Always got on well with John Martyn but your right about Beverley being talented, should have been a lot bigger in her own right.

Here’s another brilliant performance from John in 1981

Jim Breeds…..Fabulous. Words fail me when I listen to his stuff.

John Wilde…..John at his best.

Yvonne Cleland…..Sacha, what are you like?! I’ve never known a drummer before that needed a blow up doll on stage…

Mick Mepham…..He does a very convincing impression of a first-class drummer/percussionist/vocalist. (£5 in a plain envelope please Sacha….). I think he was actually being attacked by this one …..

Yvonne Cleland….He doesn’t seem to mind..

The Mars Fenwick Band – Ash Ain’t Nothing But Trash! 1986



supplied by Pete Prescott

Featuring Johnny Mars, Ray Fenwick, Pete Shaw, Terry Pack & Chris Cozens.

Terry Pack…I don’t have a copy of this, but I remember shooting the video on a freezing cold day in an alleyway in Wapping. The place was covered in ash and treacle (to represent tar, yuk!) and one of the extras was Nick Mason, the drummer from Pink Floyd, who spent the day dressed in rags and covered in ash because the director was his friend. I met Nick recently and we talked about this shoot. He said he had a tape of it, and would make me a copy. I don’t have it yet, but I bet Pete Shaw has it (he has everything!)..I don’t remember the session either, but I’m guessing from the cover that we did it at Park Gates(?)

Alan Esdaile….It would be great to see a copy of the video. According to Pete Prescott this track was featured on the Esther Rantzen show for the anti smoking campaign. Interesting to know if any of the band were smoking at the time!

Terry Pack….John used to smoke cigars when I first met him in about 83, but he’d quit by the time we did this. Chris had been a smoker at college, but quit in his 20s. I’ve never smoked, and I suspect that neither Ray nor Pete ever have.

Pete Fairless…..I think this it is, guys!  Anette Lyton being, of course, Mrs Nick Mason…

Pete Shaw…..Quite an exciting time being involved in this….recorded at Park Gates, video recording in both a Thameside redundant warehouse and a studio….three dancers from our Harry R and Jumpjet girls…Including Kathy (later Fenwick)…fun with Warren Mitchell who played the office caretaker in the video, Annette who arrived all in black on a motorcycle following fiancé Nick Mason in his black 5 litre Porsche 928, lunch whilst all still in “costume” in a pub right on the Thames, and later TV showings and much publicity….and Terry was right, none of us actually smoked nor had a lighter to start the burning wreaths of fags on the Cadillac Hearse! And yes, I have a copy of all!! Plus, we still don’t smoke coz… “Ash ain’t nothing but trash……!!” Haha…

Terry Pack…..just watched the video. I don’t remember any of the studio stuff, or the girls. That must have been shot on a different day(?). All I remember is the stuff in the alley, and how cold it was! I have a very brief moment on camera, looking about 18! (Dave Cottrell please take note: you’re not the only one who looked 10 when aged nearly 30). I like the bass sound on this, and the playing. My Fender Jazz (back pick up only) straight into the board.


Stallion – Open Door 1976

Open door from the album ‘The Hard Life’ recorded at the ‘Pathway’ studio, islington, London in 1976
This track was one of the first Stallion songs written with keyboards/synth at the core of the sound ( similar to early Genesis but with lyrics in the psychedelic tradition )

Phil Thornton….this one is VERY 70’s !!!

Mick O’Dowd….. got this album off of Phil at SMART meeting. Really good feel all round and you can see why they were a top band
