Tich Turner… I’ve only just seen this poster. Pretty sure it wasn’t 1985. I was still in The Ya Yas then. I believe the MM Band started in 1989 and we played last night. Another year!

Alan Esdaile… Thanks for correction Tich. Have updated from 1985 as that was a Tuesday. 22nd Oct 1989 would have been a Sunday.

Ernest Ballard… Still good whatever year Tich ha ha. Perhapes getting confused in his later years ah ha ha ha

Liane Carroll… Yep. 1989 I think. Rog and I weren’t together till 1987. I will ask him asap. Happy new year!! Xxxx

Pete Prescott… I was in Switzerland in 84/85 and 86.this was 89 or 90.I’ll check it out when I get home. Can’t remember much about this gig. It would have been fun with that line up I imagine.

Pete Prescott… Remember this one well ! Beki sang with the Lost Boys. Mr Langton was on another planet and  had to be forced off stage. The Lost Boys had a good night !

Karen Sweatman… Beki and the Bombshells were absolutely brilliant. I spent many a happy evening boogieing with those guys. Fabulous memories 🙂

Pete Prescott… They were a great band. Wonderful days.

Martin Richter… before the Lost Boys lost their hair !

Tony Court-holmes… still got mine and its getting longer

Pete Prescott….that was a fun night, jump the gun were very good, dave woods was amazing and the place was packed. Probably the best time for the lost boys.we were twenty four years younger and at least that many stones lighter ! The place was always packed. I have a few of those nights on video.
I tried to appreciate The Lost Boys and those gigs. I knew it was never gonna be as good again. It was like a great big social club. So many people going mad. Brilliant times.
At the time there were 5 bands in the u.k.called The Lost Boys, we found that out when we registered the songs on the first tape we put out (remember cassettes!?)

Alan McCleave… Hastings rock night. Dave wood, ernie Ballard, joe rytlewski, Peter Prescott, Jez Gillette, mick burt + a host of others.

Redstar Richter… eek – played on stage with most of that lot!

Ernest Ballard… Hey hey. What a memory. My old rock band JUMP THE GUN. On a fab night gigging with the other rockers in Hastings. It was a bloody great night as I remember. Happy days. And when we all had hair!! X

Pete Prescott… Who fancies identifying them left to right !

Martyn Baker… I think you’re there Pete.

Andy Knight… I remember that night!

Nigel Polley… i was there

Steve Simpson… How weird. The singer from another band I played in now has a band called Jump The Gun.

Roland Groves… Saw Jump The Gun at Berties Bar in the early nineties.

Ernest Ballard… Cassettes yes they worked well. Just used to chew up. Then they were totally trashed. The gig was awesome. Didn’t we have some great times Pete. Happy memories

Martin Richter… nice line up 🙂 some faces there 🙂

Joe Knight… Great!!!

Jim Breeds… The Hamsters were very good. Shame they packed it in – I went to one of their last gigs. Think it may have been their very last gig.

Pete Prescott… I remember that gig well. They were not happy with us. We went on first, it was our crowd. A few hundred walked out after a few songs. Shame as they were a great band.

Alan Esdaile… Not sure if you went to see The Bombshells at this one Karen?

Karen Sweatman… To be honest I can’t remember. Saw them so often around that time both locally and used to travel to some venues in Kent too. Most times I was a wee bit tipsy! 

Beatles Day 2 – Marina Pavilion 8th April 2001

Who remembers appearing or going to see this one?

Don’t forget Beatles Day 17 date has been announced as Sunday 3rd April 2016.

Pete Prescott… Susie Prescott typed this up in the Friday night. We then photo copied hundreds of them to be given out in the Sunday. It was probably as accurate as we would ever get as it was so close to the event. It was also the first “programme” she typed the programmes up until Beatles day 9.

John Wilde… And Expandis would like to offer their services.

Pete Prescott… Just give me a call and your in !

David Miller… I seem to remember Expandis playing “Should have known better” from “A Half-Dazed Newt” at one time….
