Andy Qunta…..Awesome, Terry!

Terry Pack….Everything I wore between 1970 and 1979 was flared: loons, jeans, sleeves, collars, hair…

Andy Qunta….That was exactly how it should be, you fashion icon you!

Peter James Shaw…..Where’s that great Rickenbacker now…you must have exchanged it for another outfit!!

Terry Pack….I sold it in 1979, Pete. It was a beauty, but a medium scale length. I needed to move on to a grown-up instrument.

A Minute Passed

Ric Hool has asked if anyone remembers the band ‘A Minute Passed, as they were one of his favourite Hastings bands  featuring Tony Qunta, Roger Carey , Mark Thirsk. Anymore info or photos?

Andy  Qunta….Yes indeed! What an incredible band! More musicianship in that band than anyone has a right to! I have the cassette, and it still blows my mind! Those 3 guys! Phew!

Pete Fisher….guess I missed them…would love to hear some tracks!

Ric Hool….I’m very excited at the prospect of this group’s profile being raised. I have two cherished and much-listened cassettes by ‘A Minute Passed’. Musicianship aside, and I absolutely concur with Andy’s appraisal, this group stood their ground and THAT COUNTS.

Terry Pack….I heard them once at The Chatsworth. Mark was a fine drummer. He and Tone shared a house in Tulse Hill when I lived just up the road in Brixton, and Tone and I were playing together a lot. He damaged the tendons(?) in his wrists by practising too long and then playing. I think he had to stop playing. The last time I saw him, he was working in a shop which specialised in super hi-fi recordings of classical music.

Bernard Jeffery….I don’t remember doing this at all

Pete Fisher….according to my Pueblo diary (yes I still have a notebook from back then”) this gig was cancelled…

Bernard Jeffery….that’s why I don’t remember doing it then lol

Terry Pack.…Mosaic included Joe Rytlewsky (spelling?), and the bass player was John Stiles (Styles?), whose family owned a garage in Battle, I think.
