Beat Rave – The Coloured Raisins and Unabridge Telephone Directory – De La Warr Pavilion Bexhill 13th September 1967

Geoff Peckham… Should have been “Unabridged Telephone Directory”, shouldn’t it? I saw them a couple of times at the Sailing Club; great band. I wasn’t allowed to go to the DLWP Beat Raves as my folks heard that purple hearts were being flogged there. As if!

Jim Breeds… Perhaps they were pre-empting the Red Hot Chili Peppers?

Yvonne Cleland… Wot. In the De La Warr?

Colin Fox… I never saw them, but heard they were very good. I later played in a band with the bass player Roy Sanderson.

Mick O’Dowd… The Coloured Raisins were a very good band and had an LP out on Major Minor Records. I think it was their only one.
