Thanks to Mark Randall for finding this.

Mark Randall… This month’s ‘Record Collector’. Two local bands’ ‘hidden treasures’ from 1969 JASON CREST & THE KULT.

Alan Esdaile… Don’t remember Jason Crest but The Kult were excellent.

Stuart Huggett… I’ve got Jason Crest’s version of ‘Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree’ on a Bam Caruso compilation LP, top stuff.

Dave Nattress… Kult were indeed really excellent and ahead of their time. They’ve had a fair bit of coverage on this site for over a year or so and really brought back some memories. Saw them a good few times in and around Bexhill around 1969 – 1971. The difference was they were doing their own stuff and very rocky and I’m inclined to say on the heavy path and progressive.

Colin Bell… Jason Crest came from Tonbridge and I supported them at 2/3 gigs, they had a great single called Turquoise Tandem Cycle, as well as the mentioned ‘Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree’ another great single! Happy Trippy Days!….


Nigel Ford… The KULT made several appearances at Battle Dances and were one of the most popular bands to do so, I thought they were great, probably my second favourite of those that appeared after KRISHNA KUDU from Maidstone.
