Peter Horton… The pics show a group that we named ” The Flipsides “. This group was formed to perform at The Sidley Fete on Saturday 29th May, 1965. We were formed on Wednesday 7th April, 1965 and we broke up following the gig. The line up was fairly flexible and several people actually came up on stage to play on the day. If anyone can remember who the vocalist was please let me know. During the afternoon we had multiple equipment failure and we never completed the set. Pictures of the audience indicate that they seem to be enjoying themselves.

photo 3… Phillip Earle Drums Unfortunately 2 snaps were taken on top of each other but this is the only other picture of Phil that I have from that day.

Geoff Peckham… Great pictures. Being a Sidley lad at that time, I was probably one of the lads there in thrall.

Phil Earle… Gosh, I’d forgotten this. No idea who the vocalist is. This was the first of many kits I had over the years and was a red sparkle mixture of a Gigster bass drum, Olympic toms, and Gigster snare. Cymbals and hi hats were Zyn and super Zyn. I can even remember I used Premier L sticks bought from Bird Music when they were at the top of Sackville Road. Shame the photo of me was double exposed but hey ho still good to see. Following this group I went on to join The Shrew People which has been mentioned here before. I must look out the photos for the site.

Ian McGilvray… I must have been trying to get some tips from the Band. Believe it I’m in the bottom left hand corner of the second photo. (posing as normal)!

Robert Searle… Can’t miss you mate

Colin Fox… Not THE Tony Bird of Birds Music fame? lol

Gaynor Duke… I was just going to comment that I spotted Mac in the crowd

Ian McGilvray… That’s me Gaynor with My imitation Beatles haircut

Philip Holloway… Can you remember any more about the fete, when the group wasn’t playing? I could ask Tony Bird, but can’t get in the shop. I’m making a Facebook album on Sidley past present.

Nikki Terry… I remember Rev Stockdale, Tony Bird, Dave Easton, Mick Ingram, Stuart Moir, Graham Putland oh loads of names…….

Mark Randall… We recorded our first ever demo at Tony’s 4 track studio

Laura Stockdale… Hey! Revs daughter here, does anyone have any more pictures of my dad?

Peter Millington… Looks like Tony Bird is playing Bass if that’s him on the left hand side?

L-R Back Row = Roy Sanderson, Tony Kenward, Rev Stockdale, L-R Front Row = Colin Fox, Pete Shaw, Ray Harper.

Robert Searle….A really good group.great vocals, Good material. Had the pleasure of playing with Colin Fox,Rev Stockdale and Pete Shaw. Tony Kenward has announced his retirement from group activities.

Terry Pack….I had the pleasure of playing with four of these guys: Tony, Rev, Colin Fox and Pete Shaw,during the 80s (and 90s in Pete’s case).

Pete Prescott….Pete looks like john bonham.petes a very good player.very powerful.got that steve gadd thing down so well.i only played with rev in the jims a couple of times.and colin in the harry r’s.

Phil Thornton….agreed Pete looks like John Bonham and plays like Steve Gadd – haha ! great player and top bloke !

Dave Nattress… Roy Sanderson worked with a bunch of my old mates and we used to go and see him in The Road back then. I ended up buying my second car from Roy and his Wife back in about 1971 – a light Green Ford Anglia – 997 cc – £140.00. It was the old Anglia that I put my first cassette player in – sounded pretty poor I guess but with Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple Made in Japan blasting away – no prob. Did me well for a year or more till I could afford my Ford Cortina Mk 2, 1600E. Absolute dogs wotsits that was!!

Leigh Wieland-Boys… Hey Gringo… Pete!  The hair?? The moustache?? What a great photo!

Andy Qunta… Great hair, Pete.

Jan Warren… We all had great hair in the 60s and 70s, thankfully I still have mine, I just can’t bear to cut it, its part of me and my history, and I will always love guys with long hair, hard to find these days ……… think hippy/bikers!!! – yeahhhh man!! 

Pete Shaw… Hi fans! Haha, that photo was actually taken on the steps outside EMI after we had recorded “Funny Little Things” and b sided it with “Rejoice” all for Polydor with Tony Rivers producing it…! Great guys, great hair, great fun…and for the record (!) we were named “Performance” ! Harmony Hairspray anyone???

Robert Searle… Love the photo love the group and still got my copy of the single.

Peter James Shaw…. Rev Stockdale first left!, Mr Drew Clifton next…!

Robert Searle….Paul Freeman drums,on the right. Fab picture.

Chris Baker….Wow! Tony Bridger!

Gaynor Duke… Dear old Rev Stockdale in that photo

Jane Hartley… Rev was in Index much later wasn’t he?

Andy Webster… Rev Stockdale far left and Paul Freeman far right. Who’s the guy in the middle?

Alan Esdaile… Still don’t know who the guy in the middle is? Is it possible the band were only a 4 piece and he was the manager or promoter?

Peter Horton… The guy in the middle is called Barry Jenkins as far as I can remember. He was the drummer when I joined them for a while in May/June 1968. The base guitarist was Clive somebody and at the time he was a hairdresser in a Hollington hairdressers just by the Blackman Avenue traffic lights. He used to cut and style the hair of the members of the band. I was recruited to replace Tony Bridger who was going off to the US. In the end he decided to stay and so I left after only 4 weeks.

Lynn Graham… Memories!

Peter Millington… That’s Clive Drew-Clifton

Colin Fox… Revvi on the left?

Alan Mitchell… The one in the middle is John Woolven he was the singer for the Springbeats before this group renamed themselves Morning Dew. The Springbeats line up Was John Woolven, Clive Drew-Clifton, Tony Bridger, and Barry Jenkins. The bass player was Tim Duke I believe.

Robert Searle… Freeman on the right

Nicola Dobson… Oh I have been asking about Barry Jenkins for some time and now I see him mentioned…which one is he as it was a long time ago?  I think Barry is second on the left..used to know him in 1968-9

Alan Mitchell… Nicola Dobson, I’m afraid Barry isn’t in this picture.

Gerry Forsch… This brings back some great memories, I never felt that there was any competition between this band and my band but good friendship. I was lucky enough to play with Tony and Tim years later in different bands.

Harry Randall… Remember Jonny and Tony (Vic) very well RIP Tony such a sad loss a brilliant guitarist and his black and white drawings were as good as a photo! i played with Tony for about 8 years a great mate!

Chris Jolly… What a GREAT NAME!

Andy Knight… I loved that band, so cool, or maybe hip then
