Sarah Harvey….A bit of a typo in the advert corrected beneath advert. A single Groundhog! I wonder which one appeared?
Leigh Wieland-Boys… I saw the Groundhogs, supported by Juicy Lucy, at a music festival in Keswick whilst on hols in the Lake District, when I was 14 – it was an overnighter but my Dad picked me up about 7pm! Five years before they were on the pier!
Jan Warren… Love Groundhogs!!

Martyn Baker… My parents banned me from going to this one…. but I went anyway, which made it all the more exciting. Maybe they’d heard about Stacia dancing semi-naked onstage?
Phil Gill talking about Ace ‘How Long’….Brilliant single “How Long”, great guitar solo, fab Paul Carrick vocal. A great song is ageless.
Phil Gill… Stacia! I met her once, she was lovely. Every band needs a shaman.
Phil Thornton… did many gigs supporting Hawkwind !! a jolly bunch and no mistake ! – prepare for the sonic attack …..
John Storer… In 1973, this was a fairly expensive gig to go to … 99p! Remember going to the gig but was only really interested in hearing Silver Machine because I found the rest of their stuff a little … overblown. Would echo Phil Gill’s comments about Paul Carrack … may be no coincidence that he appears (and sings) on my two favourite Squeeze albums … East Side Story (the brilliant “Tempted”) and Some Fantastic Place (the excellent “Loving You Tonight”)
Gary Kinch… I was there but don’t remember much of it…..I have vague hormone driven memories of Stacia though. Ace’s How Long was always a juke box favourite for me. …..and agree I with John, Tempted is very good.
Andrew Freeman… I used to work with a guy who played bass guitar with Hawkwind, but not sure which years as they had many changes over the years.
Pete Fisher… I was there (I think!)…vaguely remember the light show (mostly strobes) and the wall of sound…and Stacia of course…probably another of those gigs where everyone sat cross-legged on the floor, apart from a couple of stand-up dancers up front, who people occasionally threw beer cans etc at!!
Gary Kinch… Following Andrew Freeman ‘s comment I had a google of former members, nearly 40 line up changes including Ginger Baker and Arthur Brown……..well I never knew that. Having said that, I might have known at one stage but since forgotten it. I’ll forget where my arse is one day.
Catherine Ireland… Was Ace The Paul Carrack Ace ?
Chris Giles… Yes I was there ….
Peter Fairless… How long?
Alan Esdaile… That’s an ace comment, Pete.
