Phil Gill commented on this photo:
Ray took that picture in the top end of Alexandra Park. Tich commandeered my white jacket, so we went through Ray’s wardrobe and he found me that black leather one. It was really ’70s with a huge winged collar, which was tucked under out of sight. It also had “Marlon” written across the back of the shoulders in huge white letters. We referred to Ray as Marlon for weeks afterwards…
Ken Wilson… I remember going round Tich’s house and listening to the Stones first album…..who would have thought they would be playing Glastonbury tonight !!!!! Must have been 63/64 ish. Tich did the best Mick Jagger ever , great guy !!
Bobby Walker….Ray Fenwick now head of music at a college in Lincolnshire. Still plays regularly in local pubs
Allan Peterson… Hi,I remember Tich from the sixties at the Tuesday Night gigs at Langton Hall Battle. A Mick Jagger lookalike. Used to talk to him, a nice guy. Glad he has done well for himself. If only Diana was released later on?
Mick O’Dowd…. agree Tich was a Mick Jagger lookalike & that’s one reason we hired him to front Deep Purple.
Alan Wood… Interesting again,says Tich did well,how well
Andy Maby…. A superb song! Especially played live by the Escalators.. downstairs in the Chatsworth!!! :o))
Andy Qunta… I was just listening to this yesterday on my iPod! Fun times! What has Tich been up to? Haven’t seen or heard of him in a while!
Colin Fox… I remember Tich and his band supporting us at Langton Hall Battle in the early 60’s when he was a young lad just starting out and I could see they had potential. Very friendly and eager to learn.
Mick O’Dowd… I believe he is one of “The Blues Bros” in Soul Express show and also now in The Low-Fi Sneakers or something like that?
Alan Esdaile.. Not sure about The Soul Express Mick but he’s still got soul with the Hi Fi Sneakers.
Phil Gill… TTE, Lovely lads, but you wouldn’t want any of ’em marrying your sister.
Andy Qunta… Great to see Tich has still got it!
Yvonne Cleland… Brilliant!
Pete Prescott… I still have that record !
Virginia Davis… Remember seeing them often at the Chatsworth

Phil Gill…..Always wondered what happened to pictures people take at gigs and how they turn out. Good to see some memories. I am apparently Huge in Japan…
Tony Court-holmes…..I was back stage with the late great norman race remember him in old town week please.
Phil Gill… That was the 2000 Beach Concert. I remember it because I did JBB at around 5pm and then played with Stevie Z at 7pm. Just in time to come off stage and discover that Samabalanco had made their way backstage and drunk all the hospitality beer whilst we’d been been playing the Stevie Z set. We were unimpressed…
Jan Warren… sorting through my records I came across this album Tony Qunta played several instruments, can anyone enlighten me??
Ernest Ballard… That was Charlie Hutchinson. Guitarist songwriter. He was married to the sister of Tony Brooks wife Tony ran Dragon Studios in Hastings. Tragically Hutch was killed in a a car crash in Hastings shortly after the album was recorded. He was a lovely guy. Steve D and Min have sadly passed away too X
Jan Warren… I also remember “Min”, he was a musician who lived in Hastings Old Town in the early 70s, he was lovely, sweet hippy – our friend.
Ernest Ballard… He played sax. Yes a great character.
Phil Gill… Well, I’m on it. What sort of info would you like?
Tony May… This is a very emotive subject for me as ‘Feels Like Rain’ is probably the record I remember most from my days at Stylus Records in Castle St. We had quite a few copies in stock and I always remember Nelson De Souza ( the boss) telling me he had taken them on ‘sale or return’ but that the artist had subsequently died and he could not do anything about returning those we had not sold. Sadly, I have never heard the album. If any of you here can remember anything more about Hutch or the recording of this record I would love to hear it. Thanks Jan for posting this!
John Williams… Min played in our band PLC yes he was nice.
Pete Prescott… I had a copy of the album but lent it to someone years ago and never had it returned. Min was a lovely guy, his funeral was unforgettable. So many amazing stories. Hilarious in places. He took a photo of me staggering along the sea front on the half marathon. Then when he saw me out months later he ran home to get it. I still have it with his inscription on the back.
The album was worth some money abroad at one time I believe. There are some good local legends in it. Now ! Who did I lend it to?
Roland Clarke… Min was a great character, always stopped to have a chat if I saw him in the street. I knew Charlie back in the day. He used to hang around the studio from time to time. He wrote and did this album before he was 25. I remember him giving me a copy on lp, however, I unfortunately lost my copy in a flat move. Charlie was about 6 years older than me but was tragically killed as a passenger in a car accident returning from a pool match. He was sitting in the back but the car hit a tree driving down London road in St Leonard’s, he was only 25 I believe.

Phil Thornton ….England were great ! – lots of Mellotron and Moog, niceness !
Sarah Harvey….March 25th, 1978. England only produced one album in the 70s (Garden Shed – 1977) so I wonder what they filled out the set with. I have the Garden Shed album and played some tracks in my 70s show the other evening.
Andy Qunta…..Garden Shed is a fabulous album! They did have other songs too. I believe our SMART friends Jaffa Peckham & Phil Gill might know more about that?
Phil Gill….We didn’t do anything from Garden Shed that night or any other. It was all new stuff. The three original members had lived with the album for two years by then and wanted to move on. I’d have loved to have played songs off Garden Shed, but hey, I was the new boy.
Dave Nattress….Hi All you England fans!! I had bought Garden Shed from Boots in Bexhill. I’d noticed the album in the rack for what seemed like months and it just wasn’t selling – looked like the only copy , anyway eventually intrigue took over and I bought it and it just blew me away especially when I learned the nucleus of the band was from Crowborough. So, when they played the pier and was gobsmacked to see Phil Gill on bass. I of course was disappointed because like Phil says, they didn’t play one track off the Garden Shed album. Many years later I bought “Last of the Jubblies” on CD and more recently – well still years back, got Garden Shed on CD.
Somehow then Geoff Peckham and I met up again – went to school with Jaffa in Bexhill from 7 years old till 16 when we left, and as we talked he said he’d played/recorded Jubblies but hadn’t got it or heard it for years and years. I guess this was obviously after Phil Gill left – maybe Phil played on some tracks though, so I said all cool, well I had bought it as a punter so I was delighted to burn a copy and photocopy the sleeve etc. and I sent him the original for old school times sake. Jaffa will remember that he and I were founder members of the Goon Squad at school. To me, Jubblies doesn’t come close to Garden Shed though. Garden Shed – like just out of (seemingly) nowhere – astonishing!!!
Phil Gill….Jaffa played on all of Jubblies, it was recorded before he left and I replaced him. I played all of Jubblies live, with the exception of Jaffa’s song “Sausage Pie”, which for some reason they dropped
Steve Kinch….Phil, I remember that we played with England in Worthing, but have got absolutely no memory of the actual gig. Wasn’t Roger Carey offered the job at one time?
Phil Gill….I remember the gig well. England were not a particularly dynamic live act in my opinion, and I kind of missed the excitement of the Stallion shows I’d done for the previous two years, with John Wilde running around shaking everyone on stage by the throat, knocking us around and generally whipping up a frenzy. Yes, Roger was offered the job and I believe actually played and/or recorded with them at some point after I left. I’m a bit hazy on the story he told me, but he’d be able to confirm the detail.
Terry Pack….The Enid played twice with England while I was in the former and Phil with the latter. Lewisham(?) was one, but the other…? Do you remember, Phil? I didn’t know that Jaffa had played with them, too. I liked the drummer, who sounded a lot like Bill Bruford, I thought. The keyboard player had butchered any number of keyboards in an attempt to achieve a kind of midi. I thought they were very good.

Alan Esdaile… Phil Gill with his happy face on! Martin seems to have got the hang of levitation.
Phil Gill….I’m guessing my happy face is because someone had just yelled “Can you do Mustang Sally?!!” in my ear for the fourth time that week
Martin Blackman….Blimey’ forget about this line up, must be time for a reunion! “Mustang Sally Denied”
Robert Searle… Now, come on Phil, you know it’s your favourite number

Dont know much about the band but its amazing album
Phil Gill… they were a bunch of drunken ruffians who set up a tape machine at a gig and made a record out of the resulting noises. (And thanks for endorsing the album!)
