Tony Davies….Great picture Mick, when was this photo taken,,,, and don’t say ten past eight,,,

Mick Mepham….I’m not even sure of where it was. I had more hair then so it must be at least 6 -8 years ago. That’s a Yamaha that I had before the Takamine

Tony Davies….I didn’t know John played in Titus, nice to know he was still out there performing. I must try and get some Plum Duff music uploaded and put his voice out “there”. I like Takamines, my favourite is my PSF 15C, I also have two John Jorgenson signature models, six and twelve string. I do have an “83” Yamaha twelve which I prefer more than the JJ twelve, but they are both gathering dust in the corner. Give me a six string any day

THE MIGHTY MICK MEPHAM ROCKS ON

One of the hardest working musicians around. When he’s not busy performing up and down the country with rock band ‘90% Proof’ or playing with the more traditional folk sounds of ‘Titus’, Mick takes to the stage for a solo outing. Mick and his guitar but don’t be fooled, nothing mellow about his performance.  The powers up, die hard fans are in place and the sweat is flowing. Rock classic after classic are played from  Bryan Adams ‘Summer of 69’, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Oh Well’, ‘Prince ‘Sign O The Times’ and the stand out version of ‘Canned Heat’ ‘On the Road Again’ with a bit of ZZ Top thrown in for good measure!  As well as some new original songs which went down well. Catch him soon at one of his many gigs listed on his website www.mickmepham.com

Barry Bumps Into…. Mick Mepham

Barry Bumps into……………………MICK MEPHAM

Barry Taylor  I first came to Hastings in the 70’s and spent a summer promoting gigs on the pier – that’s how we met?

Mick Mepham Yes indeed, cos I always attended those famous old gigs, if I wasn’t playing somewhere.

BT You lived in an eccentric flat in St Leonards, the door to which always seemed open….?

MM Well, I was a young man who was always going out!

BT You had joined Die Laughing….and I got involved. We raised some money to make some recordings, a cassette in Bexhill, then vinyl in London. For those Chiswick sessions we travelled up in my old Jag!

MM There were some good gigs with that Die Laughing line up, especially supporting Saxon and Girlschool.

BT Yes the Folkestone gig(Girlschool) was a cracker, a big crowd and a good P.A.!

MM After Die Laughing, I formed Savage Hearts, including an interesting Pier gig supported D/L! A few years later we worked together again in the 90’s.

BT Yes, Ocean Artistes, when we scoured the local area for musical talent. You came into your own as a producer, in your little home studio…You did really well with people like Glenn Richardson and Tasha Sims. However we had no luck at all with record companies, it was a bad time to get a deal. So what are you up to now?

MM Well 90% Proof is working out really well and I still play some solo electric gigs.. At the other end of the spectrum are Titus. Folk music which I enjoy immensely.

BT Future ambitions?

MM My songwriting is very important to me and I would love to have one of my songs recorded by another artist.
