Tony May… A personal appeal here for some help from you all. I am looking for pictures of the band Medicine Head which appeared in the local newspapers from their Hastings pier gigs during the 1970’s. One particular picture is said to include my friend, Simon Griffiths (otherwise known to a lot of you as Karl) who was a bouncer on the pier for a short time in the background. I do not have many pictures of Simon (only those from the Bexhill Observer of 1977) so would really appreciate any of him from any time period. If anyone here can help I would be very grateful.
Andy Qunta… Wow! 40 years to the day! I don’t really remember this gig, but I’m sure I wasn’t thinking that 40 years from now, Factory will be about to release their first album!
Steve Kinch… I don’t recall ever playing with Medicine Head… then again, I don’t remember what I had for breakfast.
Peter Fairless…. As well as the 12th March 1977 they played in September ’74, too. What a great band!
Jim Munday… Yes, but not very good at sums…
Chris Meachen… Nice blokes, one of the very few acts that bought us a drink for dragging their gear on…
Gerry Fortsch… That was a bloody long haul to get your gear on the pier, I remember it well.
Chris Giles… Medicine Head great group …enjoyed watching them and their music brilliant …had forgotten I’d gone and seen them
