The Rhythm Method, Harry & The Boys and Dogs In The Garden – White Rock Lower Hall 1980’s

Anyone remember these?

Nadia Compagnone… Barry Ewing top right.

Tony May… Not sure but is the black guy, Pat Valentine? He was in loads of bands back then and was super talented. Was rather ‘driven’ though so often left groups because they weren’t taking it seriously enough. Haven’t seen, Pat for years – I wonder if he finally made it?

Xilo Pan… I still see Pat around. ..he’s ok. ..yes, very talented

Mike Mitchell… If that’s Barry top right, then that’s got to be Wally bottom left

Martin Richter… Jimmy Lewis ?

Xilo Pan… Yes it’s Jimmy …rip…Sue on sax ..Andy on drums ..I drummed for them for a while too ..still see Woley and Baz. ..

Martin Richter… they were a great band crikey – I didn’t recognise Wally !

Pete Fairless… In The Summer Time… Now, what was that lyric? “If her Daddy’s rich buy her a pier…”

Mike Guy… I’m still performing The Man Behind The Piano, Mighty Man, and Baby Jump! How many songs do you know where a bloke gets drunk, touches a woman, gets a thump from her husband, & gets peed on by a dog?

Joe Knight… See him early 80s Kings Country Club

Gerry Fortsch… Is this the gig that we the Hippo Band played support at? Mungo Jerry were a great bunch of guys.

Alan Esdaile… Not sure Gerry who the support band was. Anyone confirm?

Who remembers The Golden Hind Pub Havelock Road Hastings?

Tony Davis says… Was looking through SMART the other day and saw some photos of Steve D and it took my mind back to the days when I worked at the Golden Hind. Started me thinking if anyone has any photos of those days circa 1979-1983. If you’ve got any photos, stories or thoughts lets see if we can get a thread up and running on SMART.

Alan Esdaile… Any photos or memories, please feel free to post.

Graham Belchamber… Remember the pub and I’ll have a think through the old grey matter!

Peter Fairless… Yes, I remember it, very well!

Mike Mitchell… I met my wife in The Golden Hind. Sticky carpet and video juke box. That’s the pub not the wife.

Leigh Wieland-Boys… Went to the Golden Hind most weekends before going nightclubbing! Worked in Havelock Road & often popped in at lunchtimes too. Loved that place – lots of good memories!

Jane Dorsett… the good old days leigh……..x

Peter Fairless… Wow, those town centre pubs!
