Sarah Harvey…..After The Fire – March 3rd 1979 – I loved this band and bought the album ‘Laser Love’ after hearing ‘One Rule For You’ .

Tony May……I actually joined their fan club! Loved the first album and 80F but they started to decline a bit after that. Did you know that I A J Twiddle also released an album? Don’t know what it was like but I remember seeing it once. I’m a bit of a ‘Wild West Hero’ now myself!

Dave Nattress…..”One Rule For You”, truly fabulous. I bought the albums 80F and Laser Love – 1979/1980 and also a 3 CD set, “The CBS Recordings”. “One Rule” is definitely a wonderful track, much of the rest a bit dissappointing.

 

Time Machine – memories of the soul band by Stuart Moir

Stuart Moir… I spent 6 years of my life singing lead vocals with a fabulous 12 piece line up called “Time Machine” , our speciality was soul music with a 4 piece brass section, male and female lead vocals, 2 backing vocals, keyboard, lead guitar bass and drums, we packed out Falaise Hall before it became a gym, it was a sad time when the lead guitarist suddenly passed away and the life and of course soul disappeared for ever.

Andy Qunta… Impressive line-up! Wish I could have seen you guys!

Stuart Moir… It was a really powerful brass section driven by bass and drums, I loved every minute singing with the guys .

Robert Searle… I played with you in Suspects at Falaise Hall Stuart.What was the name of the guitarist you mentioned?

Terry Pack… I depped with the band a few times, at Hellingly(?) and Something Cross.

Len Smith… Stuart am I correct in thinking during this period you reduced from 12 and renamed Big Bang before Trevor Pitson passed away?

Jenny Tyler… I saw Time Machine at Falaise Hall, they were brilliant. I think I saw yhem at The Star Inn at Normans Bay. X

Mick O’Dowd… Saw you at Falaise Hall Stuart. Was going to see Bob Geldof at The White Rock but he cancelled at last minute. You totally blew me away. Especially liked the brass appearing from behind with the Soul Finger intro. Fantabidosi!

Mick O’Dowd….Labrath Roadshow I used quite alot on my gigs. Anybody know what happened to Steve who was always very helpful on gigs. Remember Smokestack Lightning they were quite a good band.

Chris Meachen….This gig was put on by Chris Rudge. I was on the door, I seem to remember I was technically the bouncer, though the only bouncing done was on the dancefloor…
