Phil Gill….Wasn’t Will T in Daisy?
Yvonne Cleland….Yep, he was, along with Mr. Terence Corder, Tony Barraclough, and young Kevin Hoad. I was Will’s gf and did the sound. Wes Magoogan had joined them, by this time, and Marion did the lights.

Paul Dove….Great band Factory played with them on a few dates with, ( muller & 3 on ice,) great days.

Phil Thornton, Kevin Hoad, Tony Bird and Martin Stringer.
Phil Thornton… Well thanks for digging this out Martin ! (I don’t remember ever seeing this before) didn’t we have a bass player ?
Alan Esdaile… It would be interesting to know the story behind the props.
Tony May… A definite touch of The Bonzo’s by the look of this pic! (lol)
Martin Stringer… Hi Phil, hope all well with you and yours. Can’t remember a bass player.
Tony Bird… the fifth member of the band was Mick Ingram and the photo was taken at my studio called Wing at Ninfield circa 1980 and the props what part of the studio decoration. Now that’s recycling.
Julian Richards… cannot forget the Abysmal Sisters , great music , lots of humour ! I went back to Bexhill in September 2014 for 3 weeks , live in Perth , Australia , my best mate Richard Crawley took me in to see Tony Bird , he even gave me a copy of the A/sisters on CD , what a great surprise , still sounds bloody good even after such a long time . Great to see Tony is still in business , you bloody Legend !!
regards , Julian Richards ( Formerly of Bexhill )

Alan Esdaile… Phil Gill with his happy face on! Martin seems to have got the hang of levitation.
Phil Gill….I’m guessing my happy face is because someone had just yelled “Can you do Mustang Sally?!!” in my ear for the fourth time that week
Martin Blackman….Blimey’ forget about this line up, must be time for a reunion! “Mustang Sally Denied”
Robert Searle… Now, come on Phil, you know it’s your favourite number
supplied by Paul Dengate
Paul Dengate…. I’ve checked through my diaries and I reckon this was taken at the Steppin’ Out “party night” at the Archery, Eastbourne, 24th December 1977. Used to do the sound for the band, but this was probably a special party-piece. L-R: Wesley Magoogan, Ray Fenwick, Paul Dengate, Martyn Baker, Roger Hubbard. Drummer is possibly Andy Knight.or Kevin Hoad.
Andy Qunta… Great band!
Nigel Ford… Was Tich Turner in Steppin’ Out at some point,…soon after he left Stallion, I seem to remember?
Alan Esdaile.. Yes your right Nigel. Here’s a press photo from 1977…
John Wilde… One word. Hair.
Wesley Magoogan… Serious flairs!
Martyn Baker… Yeah, nice pair of lionels Wesley but I think if there was a biscuit around then Paul would have taken it.
Paul Dengate… Yes.
Dave Nattress… Samisen played the Archery Tavern once when I was with them – mid-week I think and If I remember correctly it was one of those gigs where the unappreciative audience had just about made double figures.

Paul Dengate… I have this picture to hand, taken after the time I ran the Box. It’s a Catsfield Steamers rehearsal: Kevin Hoad on drums, John Burgess (later vocalist with Better Days), Brian Chainey just visible behind John, Jane Downes and myself (playing the Gibson SG mentioned in a post on this page a few days ago). Umpteen other Steamers would also have been there.
Yvonne Cleland… I used to work with JB. He’s now the rector at Fairlight church. Catsfield Steamers were a cracking band.
Paul Dengate… The Steamers are still playing, though not so often since Will, Jane, Jo and myself left at the start of this year
Tim Moose Bruce… I like the Plastix on the graffiti o the wall. Remember them as a Bexhill punk band.
Andy Caine… Hi Paul, is that the SG I bought from you?
Paul Dengate… Yes
