Mick O’Dowd… My last promotion on the Pier in conjunction with Martin Prior of Priway Music in 1979. Great gig if not somewhat damp from flob! Piranhas good band, great blocks, enjoyed promoting them. Promoted them 3 times, twice at The Carlisle and then this on the Pier. They then went on to be hitmakers.
Peter Fairless… Always liked The Piranhas. Let’s hear it for Boring Bob, Johnny, Reg, Dick and Phil!
Alan Esdaile… I can remember making some badges for this gig.
Steve Foster… I saw them at the Carlisle,me and my mates Jon and Pete played pool with them. Also saw them support The Jam at the Brighton Centre
Mick O’Dowd… Though they’re listed on ticket & handbill, The Teenbeats did not appear.
