Margaret Fletcher… Not Saturday
Rilka Brignall… Looks like saturdays to me
Peter Millington… Could that be Chris Glazier spinning plastic – Scalliwags perhaps?
Kevin Burchett… its definitly not scalliwags its saturdays
Alan Esdaile… Thinking now this could be Aquarius which was what Saturday’s was called previously in the 70’s.
Kevin Burchett… Its Saturdays because of the lights no one had lights like that in Hastings then or now
Phil Gill… Could be the one at the back of Wellington Square that’s now a curry house. It was always too loud for meaningful conversation, so I just used to listen to the music. If you listen carefully, you can spot the little disco funk references Steve and I worked into some of the Stallion songs. It’s very subtle, but it’s there. We were very cheeky. Well, two that spring to mind…listen to the bass and drums on Arsony in the UK, which is basically sped up disco funk followed by a 50s doo wop chorus. And on the live version of Cobra, we referenced Oops Upside Your Head.
Alan Esdaile… Was the club in Wellington Square called Courtneys?
