Charlie Ball… Paul Dove playing there is my cousin.I used to go to The Regent, Spyke played a lot there.

Jan Warren… I used to go there in the early 70s, my husband was the regular Saturday night

Andy Qunta… Before Factory was formed, my brother, Tony, & I played in a band called Static Emotion, with Chris Sambrook & Dave Austin. We played downstairs at the Regent every Saturday, between March-May 1970, approx. Good times! Small audiences, as I recall, but a gig’s a gig!

Andy Knight… Can you remember the year – when did you join us?

Robert Searle… Both venues now gone.

Jane Hartley… Went to the Queens Head a lot!

Dave Nattress… Yes, the Granville, Bexhill, downstairs in what I think I recall was like a quite ornate ball-room with circular pillars – maybe the mind is wandering too far on the decor – always, a considerable amount of beer had been downed. There was a period in 1969 – 1970 odd when there were lots of bands. Suspect or Centrepage I’m pretty sure and I think Bexhill’s Cult. But, for me and the lads on the whole it was a very bleary-eyed time.

Peter Millington… JINKS played there several times in the 70/80s. I remember the columns well.
