Kevin Burchett… SPYKE PLAYED AT SCALLYS THE FIRST WEDNESDAY AFTER OPENING SOON AFTER THEY REFORMED TO BECOME JINKS
John Storer… Aah! …. those halcyon days of crimpolene flares! 🙂
Peter Millington… We didn’t reform, we just added Rod Trowell to our line-up and changed our name from SPYKE to JINKS. That change happened after 28th May 1975 and before our return to Scalliwags on 11th July that same year. Thanks for posting Kevin – my “style cred” has just hit the buffers!
Peter Gladwish… Just noticed my band, ‘Vogue’ were on this advert. We were regulars at Scallywags for quite a while.
Pete Prescott… I still have the Jinks album on cassette (light blue cover )
