Nicholas Randall… Jukes LP live at palace recorded Hastings sept 1987 at pig in paradise
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!)

Also appeared Titus and Friends,  Blowabella, Ralph McTell, The Kipper Family, Barry Dransfield, Cecil Sharp, Ashley Hutchings, Bonnie Shalijean and loads more. Gigs at various venues and events took place throughout the town.

Robert Searle… Saw Tom Paxton at the Congress Eastbourne .The place was nearly empty ,so embarrassing for him and the audience. A really nice folky who i liked in the early sixties.

Will Cornell… I’d do anything to be able to see Blowzabella. They’ve played S.America a lot, but nary a nod to the ol’ USA. On my top 5 list of faves. Oh well, I do correspond with one of the guys quite a lot on matters re: Hurdy Gurdy!

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?
