Mick Mepham…..Here’s a pic I look at most days and had completely forgotten about. This was Roadhouse circa 1984 – 5 (I think). L to r: Nigel Millichamp (drums/pyros), Chris Jones (bass/leather), me, Dave Bartlett (Vocals/brylcreem). Good fun band, 1 album – Outhouse Tales. Hurrah!

Karen Sweatman…..I loved Roadhouse and spent many a happy evening down The Crypt watching these guys! Although, I was watching them probably around 1988 and the line up had changed a bit by then- great memories of dancing around like a lunatic .

Mick Mepham….I’ve got a few more pix like this but no live ones – has anybody got any live photos of this lineup please?

John Mcewen….I,m sure I,ve still got the poster from Roadhouse’s last gig at the Carlisle in the loft.

Redstar Richter… I drew that poster – btw – I failed o-level art (inspired by the zap clubs posters of the same time). parallel – Jez Gillett? bewildered – paul Thomas (tom e flamingo) and dave blackman) , roadhouse – nigel millichamp, gambeau and dave Bartlett….? bookings by jozef rytlewski -this is when graham jones was manager.

Karen Sweatman Was Blackman… I Like Danny’s Hair were fantastic. I can remember their classic ‘Fatso Fatso, Let’s Break For Lunch’

Redstar Richter… were they the Eastbourne band Karen?

Kev Towner… Anyone remember Rockbitch?

Karen Sweatman Was Blackman… I had forgotten just how bonkers they were! Rick, the singer used to have a trick of smashing a beer glass on his forehead. It went horribly wrong one night and he did a whole set with blood pouring down his face. Also remember the audience playing a game of football during one of their gigs. Do you remember Rik Goodman?

Kev Towner… I used to work on Turn It Up Redstar. I’ve still got a newspaper cutting from one of the broadsheets when they did a big piece on the show. I think there’s me, Duncan and some others in it – including some pics of a studio interview with (I think) The Long Tall Texans.

Redstar Richter… I`m a long tall Texan – I drive a big white car ! Lovely geezers – their hastings experiences didn`t do them credit.

Paul Dengate… Re The Battle Of The Bands (8th March), that was probably the year that Better Days won it.
