Folk Evening – Hastings Carnival – Alexandra Park 19th July 1975

Peter Thomson… Yes, I was there. I recall Graham Barrett and Dave Kent were there also, amongst many others. Great evening.

Pete Prescott… wish I had seen this man live. wonderful artist ! Check out “the Bantom Cock ” brilliant !

Peter Thomson… I know comedic standards have shifted with time but he has to be responsible for some of the least PC lyrics. “I love a good bum on a woman, it makes me smile”. How sad that I’m not allowed to find this funny any more.

Yvonne Cleland… My mum could have made two pairs of trahsers out of those strides 🙂 🙂

John Wilde… Great memory, thanks Alan. Oh if only I had saved that gear. Loved those pants! Great times.

David Miller… Loved that day, that event and that performance.

Phil Thornton…  was going for the ‘space priest’ look which has fallen out of favour in recent years … cant get hats like that anymore ! Just noticed I’m playing an acoustic 12 string !! I must have been going through a phase !

Phil Gill… Eko Ranger 12? I used to have one of those…. I’ll say no more.

Andy Qunta… Those are surely award-winning trousers that John is flaunting!
