Lance Collins… Saw them in Minehead January Really good live

Will Cornell… I imagine many people with my name caught flak for the song in the ’70s like I did. I did not like being called “Little Willie” by the hot girls on the college tennis team. Nosireebob.

Pete Fisher… here seem to be two Sweet bands around, this one with Andy Scott, and another with Steve Priest, who has to play sitting down. I think I’d rather remember them like this…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ndnidos5HRU

Ian Mcgilvray… I’ve seen this Band in Australia and They were brilliant. Wish I could be back in My hometown to see them in December.

Stuart Moir… Christ we played with them years ago, looking very aged now but I’m sure the music is better than ever

Colin Gibson… Lord help us

Robert Searle… Saw the original Sweet at the Aquarius and they were fantastic. Saw Andy Scott’s Sweet at the Congress a few years ago,they looked good and sound good, even though Andy was having trouble with his voice, he still got those high notes, a real trouper.

Paul Huggett… New singer, Paul Manzi from Cats in Space – great voice. Bit of a loss for the Cats though….

Lance Collins… saw cats in space at same venue. They were mega !!!!

Paul Huggett… Only fairly recently (last year or so) picked up them Lance, thanks to Radio Caroline playing Clown In My Nightmare a lot

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.
