Yvonne Cleland… Memories…… just left school, and met Will!
Jim Hobbs… Emperor Rosko and the Radio One Club, great stuff, joke was Radio One reception in Hastings was bloody awful in those days. Reception on all ‘platforms’ is now brilliant – shame the content is shit!
Alan Esdaile… I got this album in my collection. Some great Atlantic tracks on here.
Dave Garland… I do slightly remember that Gig, on the Pier, I loved the Pier back in those days, saw so many good bands. I went backstage when Status Quo were on and tried to swap my 6″ Clogs for a pair of platform boots that the rhythm guitarist was wearing, (can’t remember his name,) but Francis Rossi said he’d break his neck wiv em on! The Kinks gig stands out, Thunderclap Newman, Factory supported lots of bands on the Pier including Suzie Contro(Mickey Most was with her there & commented on how good our P.A. was, for only 500 watts. The secret was to get the Bins up as high as possible!! Bring back the Pier!! Lol, Dave Garland (now back in Hastings!)
