and from 1981 – Moment Of Passion

Yvonne Cleland… My mum could have made two pairs of trahsers out of those strides 🙂 🙂

John Wilde… Great memory, thanks Alan. Oh if only I had saved that gear. Loved those pants! Great times.

David Miller… Loved that day, that event and that performance.

Phil Thornton…  was going for the ‘space priest’ look which has fallen out of favour in recent years … cant get hats like that anymore ! Just noticed I’m playing an acoustic 12 string !! I must have been going through a phase !

Phil Gill… Eko Ranger 12? I used to have one of those…. I’ll say no more.

Andy Qunta… Those are surely award-winning trousers that John is flaunting!

Joe Knight….well just look at DAVE!!!must send this to him 🙂 love it!!!

Terry Pack….That’s the phallus of shame I was referring to several weeks ago. I knew there was a photo. The person responsible for the most errors was awarded it at the end of the gig, but it got passed around during the gig, too. 

Pete Prescott….the last i saw of it was at the six bells at chiddingly, pete shaw won it but it was never seen again thats a very bearded Terry in the background it was at brian storkies place in bexhill.i think it was around 1981.
