Gerry Fortsch… I remember playing at the PIG in the eighties with the Hippo band, we always started off with medium tempo songs and eased into more upbeat numbers later in the evening after people had indulged in a few beers and got a little rocking. On this one evening the PIG was fairly full of French students that wanted to bop from the beginning, we were all knackered by eleven o’clock.

Jon Nurse… Where’s Jimmy now?

Nick Foster… I’ve got 2 original vinyls of Positive Routes single African Connection / Tomorrow. Published on the Pig in Paradise label. I remember their gigs at the Pig – always amazing.
