Pete Fairless… Hand coloured?
Conan Howard… I bet that was done by Bernard Jeffries the drummer?
Sarah Harvey… Roger normally did the hand-crafted posters for the bands. They were always neat and he always put a lot of time into them as you can imagine.
Dave Nattress… Sarah, I have some old Samisen artwork, some you did I think – posters for gigs, with “Samisen” in Japanese style lettering and a rising sun logo, and some I did which we put in our car windows – must meet up some time or I’ll bring them to a SMART gig. Temporarily mislaid but I do have them for sure.
Sarah Harvey… I remember those Dave. My first job was a design draftsperson and I created all the Ore Festival posters on a drawing board with set squares and other drawing instruments.
Dave Nattress… Sarah, when I find them I’ll post them on the SMART website.
Conan Howard… I think that was done by Bernard Jeffries,Samisens second drummer .. who is now is KING BATHMAT

Jo Turner… Oh I loved these competitions and have great memories of jumping in the back of someone’s van frequently in later years to follow local bands doing the competition rounds. Was it Michael Mepham who had the van?

Ken Copsey… I came across this earlier today – just over 40 years ago to the day. I can’t recall a great deal about this gig – can you?
Mick O’Dowd… This was one of mine. Can’t find in my archives but i’m sure I was bullied into this by one of their Dad’s who worked at The Hastings Observer. I’m glad he beat me down because they were an excellent young band and I expected them to go far. Maybe they were a bit too young at that time.
Pete Fairless… Well, they’re still going, you can’t beat that Mick!
