Pete Fisher… I was living in London “studying” English Literature (but actually spending most of my time playing in a band)…got a holiday job at Walthamstow council and was promoted from roadsweeper to dustman – old school metal bins with handles, carrying one in one hand with another one on your shoulder, having to run after the truck…the heat was almost unbearable by midday, but we were usually done by then…

Dave Nattress… First prize goes to Phil Gill and Stallion – magnificent performance – no contest for best use of the long hot summer of 76!

Phil Gill… Aww, thanks. We tried our best that year and it was memorable. There was an amount of time spent partying on those long hot evenings too.

Chris Baker… That’s a nice piece. Can’t work out who else was in the band apart from Steve. Stallion in one incarnation or another?

Phil Gill… Chris, two incarnations shown there. Starts off with the later band, me, John Wilde, Phil Thornton and John Petri at Reading in 1976, but there are also shots of the Tony Bridger, Tich Turner and Steve KInch 1974 lineup at Windsor Free Festival in 1974. The music is all from 1976.

Ewan Smith… 15 at the time , spent the whole time sailing off Bexhill beach !

Ralph Town… Started my first job on my birthday 1976. Within days it was in the 30s. I wasted that summer. Wish I’d done that one on the dole LOL. Oh I had to stand up all day,in one of those rotten breeze block units on Castleham,fans on,doors open and it was still too hot.Soon got the shorts on tho,then I discovered beer and then the summer just raced by lol.

Peter Fairless… I was in Demarco’s – it was cooler in the kitchens than it was outside!
