Phil Gill guitar, Pete Prescott vocals, Terry Pack guitar, Pete Shaw drums, Jo Brooks keyboards.

Pete Shaw… I’ve still got those shorts, that top and the kit! I must have cleaned it as the gold snare hoops don’t have any lager stains or crisp leftovers……

Alan Esdaile… are these the famous shorts from ‘Harry R & The Jump Jets’?

Pete Shaw… An updated pair carefully tailored for the fuller man….!

Pete Prescott… hot day as i recall !

Pete Prescott (commenting on Jo Brooks) that is one serious shirt !(good coming from me ha ha !) lovely fella.

Jeff Davis,  Andy Leaney,  Martin Stringer,  John Laidlaw.

John Laidlaw (photo 6) Yup, that’s me. Playing with Rude Knot To, could be 99, 00 or 01 (although I suspect it really is 2001) – difficult to remember when you’re in a band with Jeff Davis and Martin Stringer.

Dawn Leaney….My late husband Andy Leaney (photo 2) with his beloved Ovation guitar playing at Hastings Beach concert.

Andy Walker…Is that the same John Laidlaw that was in The Tony Ashton Trio with Pete Shelton?

John Laidlaw… I don’t recall either the Tony Ashton Trio, or Pete Shelton – sorry!

Dawn Leaney… Anymore photos of Andy Leaney on that day? … I remember being in the audience! 🙂 xx

Alan Esdaile…. If anymore crop up I will send to you Dawn, anyone else got any?

Andy Qunta….Worth repeating myself I think – a unique character & great musician. Great photo!

Mick Knights….I remember one hot summer’s day, when he walked into the back bar of the Nellie wearing only a very small pair of swimming trunks and that tatty shoulder bag, the fishermen soon removed said trunks and thru them into the middle of the Bourne, where the shoulder bag proved useful in retrieving them!!!!

John Wilde…. was in a sauna with Min, he stunk of garlic and sweat and cider, he brought a potato with him to cook on the furnace, naturaly he upset a few patrons. Bless him.

Mick O’Dowd….Wot a great character he was!

Pete Fairless….Very nice guy, always had time to chat with (what must have been) a bunch of annoying teenagers. He made such beautiful sounds come out of that convoluted piece of tubing, too!

Alan Esdaile….I can remember a time on Hastings Pier, when someone came running up and said Min’s cut himself and bleeding badly. Myself and Paul Casson went searching for him by following the trail of blood! Eventually found him in a deck chair outside the ballroom laughing and oblivious to all the fuss. We got an ambulance down and he was taken into casualty. I saw him a few days later and he couldn’t remember anything about it.

Mick Knights….Another thing was the number of badges he wore around the late seventies, I remember one particulary small one which you had to get really close to to read said, you are cordially invited to go screw yourself, which gave him a lot of pleasure when ever he caught some one with it.

John Martyn – ‘Big Muff’ Hastings Beach 1991

With the Hastings Beach Festival approaching this weekend, good time to post this video by Glenn Veness, of the great John Martyn singing ‘Big Muff’

I have fond memories of John when I worked in Stylus Record Shop. He used to pop  and chat about music and records. One day we had a surprise visitor in the shop ‘Art Garfunkel’ . He was in town to record with John. Also remember a great gig by John at The Carlisle. I think Alan Jensen from the Disc Jockey promoted it and was a warm up to his tour.  Brilliant night.                                                          Johnny Mason

Martyn Baker comments…. The film also features cameos from Minn, Liam Genockey and Roger Hubbard.

Joe Knight comments…. spotted PAT THE HAT!!!! lol
