Sergeant featuring Pete Prescott – 1980’s poster and rare video

supplied by Pete Prescott. video supplied by Kevin Burchett

Pete Prescott… I remember four days in the mountains filming with two helicopters. we had an amazing time. Sadly the result (a 40 minute documentary on us making a video) was absolute crap !
We were filmed in hockey stadiums and night clubs and the local police chief was our driver in the car chase. Great stuff ! We were taken to the top of a mountain and filmed sledding down it. My arse was frozen after an hour of that ! I remember the buzz when the helicopter took off really fast. it was brilliant.
What was less brilliant was not realising they were going to do acrobatics.I was in it screaming my head off.
Terrible 40 minutes but fun to film. this was the video. Good memories.

A Great Voice – Pete Prescott & Ray Fenwick chat.

Photo of Sergeant and in the studio with Ray Fenwick for Forcefield recording.

Colin Fox…..I always thought Pete would have made it big in America, he´s got the sort of voice they like.

Ralph Town…..I don,t want to appear to be hi-jacking but talking of voices,does anyone know or remember a lady called Michelle Jackson.Her Dad was an actor and her Mum ran a store on the West Hill.She went to the US and had a great voice.Would love to know what became of her.We were childhood chums 🙂

Pete Shaw…..That’s Ike Nossel of Park Gates Studio under the cap!! Captivating chap!

Pete Prescott….yes thats Ike..amazing studio, remember the shine it on me session ? that was Jan ! time flies !

Andy Qunta…..Great voice indeed! Park Gates Studio – fun times! I remember the Shine It On Me session too’

John Storer…..You’ll be pleased to know that Ray Fenwick no longer wears white socks but is still one ace guitarist:-)

Pete Prescott…..He is a fantastic player, wish i had some photos of the stuff he used to wear when I first met him.  He looked like an explosion in a paint factory. Don’t get me wrong, he looked amazing, not sure if Hastings was ready for it ha ha !  he played some amazing stuff live.wish some of that could have been recorded. The photo was taken at b.b.c. radio in reading.trying to remember the d.j.’s name (brian pithers ?)

Colin Fox…..I agree, he is a great player, but he once said, “if I judged a guitar player as a ladder, I would only be on the first rung”. He was talking to Les Harding at the time.

Mark Gilham…..Ray has done so much amazing stuff to help Hasting’s musicians get started in the industry. We were talking about him just the other day, singing his praises.

Terry Pack…..He was being falsely modest. Ray was and is near the top of the ladder in terms of rock, pop and blues. The best rhythm guitar player I’ve ever played with, which is saying something, and a very fine soloist.

Pete Prescott…..Ray is certainly the most melodic player.he could occasionally go into that 5th gear some players do.if was amazing then (i saw liane carrol do that once.never seen anything like it !) ray rarely played in a studio (that i saw or heard anything near what if played live ) would love to hear him again one day.
