poster supplied by Ken Copsey

Ken Copsey… Aggro with the skinhead contingent which wasn’t very Greenpeace. Looking at the list of promoters at the top of the poster I wonder if that is the Andy McConnell the glass specialist who lives in Rye now?

Tony Ham… The name I remember is Blast Furnace and the Heatwaves, think they only had two as the ice cream van got tipped over by skinheads.

Ken Copsey… Blast Furnace was Charles Shar Murray’s band. Lee Lewis was always great. We played with him again in Swansea.
