Ken Copsey… 40 years ago! Colour outake from our single cover shoot Hastings Pier. Many thanks to Ray Fenwick for sending these to me.

Colin Jefferys… Blimey blast from the past …. was this just before you buggered off to Canada ( can’t help myself) did quite well over there I recall. I could of come with you but I had to pay my own air fare and at 17 did not have that kind of cash. Loved hanging round with you guys though. Thanks for the memories though

Tony Court-holmes… rock on Huggy

Huggy Leaver, Paul Thomas, Eddie Mays, Dave Blackman, Ken Copsey. 

Pauline Sims….Nice photo – all looking very serious!

Pete Fairless….All looking very young!

Ken Copsey… I think you’ll find it is not the real Eddie Mays in this picture but a ventriloquists dummy being operated by Dave! This was taken at the offices of The Hastings Observer.

Teenbeats – more classic photos
