Phil Gill….My first gig with The Jukes. Andy Knight and I had a splendid time wandering around the place with a pair of walkie-talkies we commandeered from someone official looking and winding people up. Ian Dobson introduced The Jukes by name and said “On bass, Phil Gill. It’s not true when people say he’s not fit to live with pigs, because he is.” Great line! Also remember being hugely impressed with Michael Mepham’s band Mars, especially a song called Lorelei – they had a real big time buzz about them, well rehearsed and confident, and it showed from the first song. I still have the Prom-in Aid T-shirt and a poster. Lovely day.

Alan Esdaile… Mick, was Mars the band I saw at your special launch night in Eastbourne?

Joe Knight… sounds like you all have had some great fun in the past , thanks you two are like a library of Hasting bands

Tim Moose Bruce… Went to this one. Mars were great.
