The De La Warr Pavilion 5th October 1983 supplied by Pete Prescott

Pete Prescott ….it was one of those short lived (and everyone new it ) fun bands.ray was good at getting everyone on board and organising rehearsals.i learned 48 rock and roll songs in a week.the best 24 were picked and the rest dumped.i could still sing most me then now.we all learned a lot.especially how good rock and roll is.and how influential it is.

Robert Searle… Good pictures of Pete and great picture of some great musos.

Jane Hartley… Nice legs!

Phil Gill… You wouldn’t want to take any of ’em home to meet your parents, would you?

Harry Randall… I’m wondering what’s happened to them all?

Janet Rennie… Lovely boys

Mark Gilham… What is it with Ray and promo pics?

Pete Prescott… Great band ! Andy and Ray played so well. Fantastic players. We had our moments.

Terry Pack…  did a number of recordings with him, including a country blues album(!). I liked him and he was a very good player: much more than a rocker.

Andy Caine… Bags of fun!!!

Martyn Baker… Great band photo!

Pete Shaw… What fun we all had..before Harry R, during the mad days of Harry R and after where we all did a bomb burst back into more mad music in varying bands!! Great lessons learnt…22 minute guitar solos..easy!!!

Pete Prescott… Yeah ray solo Andy solo Andy Qunta solo Tony Qunta West solo ray solo in a blues jam. 28 sodding minutes ha ha !

Phil Gill… I believe Rev Stockdale’s mum met several of them one morning when she walked into her living room and found them asleep on the floor.

Pete Shaw… What fun we all had..before Harry R, during the mad days of Harry R and after where we all did a bomb burst back into more mad music in varying bands!! Great lessons learnt…22 minute guitar solos..easy!!! And I’m allegedly a drummer…!

Andy Caine… Making as much noise as possible!

Martyn Baker… I’ll have you know, my parents met at least 3 of them.

Andy Qunta….I see a full glass of wine in his hand, and an empty one on the floor! Way to go, Pete!

Pete Prescott….we played there to a very quiet crowd.i remember ray saying something about them being miserable only to be told they had all been informed that morning they were losing their jobs ! good gig.almost got the dance routine right.

Terry Pack……Brings back some happy memories . Wasn’t Cathy beautiful!

Dave Easton……Wonderful times.

Colin Fox…..Didn´t Cathy dance with Legs & Co on top of the pops? and isn´t that her sister top right?

Terry Pack……She was in The Young Generation, which was ITV’s version and danced on shows like Lift Off. Yes, that’s Linda, top right.

Pete Prescott…..she was also in the “feet” a three piece that danced on magpie.i have seen a couple of the girls over the years.lovely times.

Mick O’Dowd….The original bionic man himself, Dave Easton with the Bradley Wiggins sideburns!

Joe Knight….well just look at DAVE!!!must send this to him 🙂 love it!!!

Terry Pack….That’s the phallus of shame I was referring to several weeks ago. I knew there was a photo. The person responsible for the most errors was awarded it at the end of the gig, but it got passed around during the gig, too. 

Pete Prescott….the last i saw of it was at the six bells at chiddingly, pete shaw won it but it was never seen again thats a very bearded Terry in the background it was at brian storkies place in bexhill.i think it was around 1981.
