Pink Floyd – Hastings Pier 20th Jan 1968

Supplied by Peter Fairless Bands On Hastings Pier Facebook page.

Terry Huggins…. Syd Barrett’s last ever gig with the band.

Lawrence Ralph… Does, anybody actually remember attending this, i know 50 years ago, and memories being foggy, was it good or bad from vaguest memories?

Dave Weeks… We still don’t know what happened to Beaufords Image! Anyone?

Clive Millard… Yes certainly do, I was a member of the support band, as you mentioned hazy days my thoughts take me be back sitting with the Pink Floyds technicians using an old fashioned projectors with two pieces of glass adding paint colours, then projecting it on to white sheets covering over there amplifiers, bloody magic

Kevin Burchett… Ive got that cutting on my keyring

Pete Fairless… Pink Floyd didn’t play, they were having a ‘holiday’. The date was rearranged for the following January, Syd’s last gig, famously

Zabriskie Point Film – December 1970 ABC Cinema

Interesting soundtrack of Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead etc. Anyone remember seeing this film?

Martin Richter… she was a lovely girl – but left crumbs in the bed 🙁

Lucy Pappas… I watched most of it but missed the end cos the last bus to Fairlight left at 10.30 and films usually finished at 10.40….

Eric Cawthraw… Yep, went with a bunch of mates to see this. I’ve never seen it again, so my memory of it has faded, but I have a visual recollection of seeing a kitchen blown up with all the food and utensils floating around in slow motion. It was definitely Pink Floyd playing in this sequence. I think it was either Astronomy Domine or Careful With that Axe Eugene.  Who’s this bloke Crumbs by the way?

Jim Breeds….Goodness me! The Floyd *did* play the pier.

Pete Fairless….it was Pink Floyd, Syd’s last gig!

Mick O’Dowd….Ads like this make us remember why we were all sad at its demise. Such memories and such great diverse music too! Sadly a time passed that will not be seen again(well not for 50p a shot)!

Fortunes autographs from Colin Bell and pity he didn’t get Pink Floyds autographs but only Pete Drummond who presented it.
