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.

Alan Esdaile… Perhaps someone will ask him if it was him backstage at the Jimi Hendrix gig on Hastings Pier.

Colin Norton… Would certainly clear up the mystery
