Redstar Richter….kate davies – bless her
Dave Kent….”These days, The Observer prints pics like these to persuade vulnerable people to fit extra locks. I hope no children look at this, they’ll have to sleep with the light on for at least a month. “Gallery” was released in 1986. Other musicians were: Mick Burt, Mick Hutchinson (he of Clark-Hutchinson), Ernie Bloch-Sage, Billy surname-forgotten, Carl Turner, Gary Blakeley. Engineered by Clive Drew-Clifton who was driven to the edge of insanity by having to record countless versions of “Multi storey car park”. I think we may have been the reason that Clive decided to restrict his studio to voice-overs.”
Mick O’Dowd…..Worked with Dave at John Humphries. Hi Dave! Knew Keith from Unnormality. Still got the Cast tape with the legendary “Multi Storey Carpark”. They don’t write them like that anymore!
Mick Mepham…..ndeed Redstar, Kate was a good friend. She came to the Marz gig in Rye which is where I met my old mate Iain Ward, whose funeral I’ll be attending on Monday. That was our 3rd and final gig! There just weren’t enough venues for a band like that. That was also the gig after which my back went bang! Ahhhh, memories ……
Redstar Richter…..certainly a lovely lady – despite her quirk for leather jackets and (what I believe the youngsters call) *rock* music!
From 68 – Tich Turner, Tony Bird , Len Benton, Peter Horton and Ian McGilvray.

Paul Sleet – saw them at a gig at a girls school in Hastings. Think it was woodlands in tower road if memory serves. I was a mere schoolboy at the time.
