Matt Thomas… My DJ’ing debut up at Hastings Town FC The Firs 1989 Tonight is the first time I’ve seen this photo, one of my sister’s that she shared to me. The memories are flooding back to this stage in my life. This would be about August 89 and I was working at both VG Electrovac on Ponswood and in the evenings behind the bar at White Rock Theatre.
Stuart Moir… Played there many times with Centre Page
Peter Fairless… Used to see The Zodiacs at The Cricketers, the Oval
Geoff Peckham… f this is the only time The Zodiacs played at the Palace Bars, then I was at this gig on a rare trip to Hastings in the 80s. I remember it being a brilliant night.
Colin Gibson… The Zodiacs were regulars at the Pig in Paradise Thursdays, always great nights.
Nick Foster… This ad leads to some happy memories. I think nearly all members of the Zodiacs played in various other bands and line ups over the period 83 – 89 when I owned the Pig. I still have a picture from Joe King hanging on my wall. The art gallery was organised and managed by Julia Robinson. We encouraged people to exhibit for the first time and some of the exhibitors went on to become established artists. If I remember correctly Kevin Brown was sadly disappointed with his gig as we didn’t have a dressing room for him and we only charged 50p admittance!!!
