episode

The Episode were previous Episode Six which included Ian Gillan and Roger Glover. 7 1/2 pence to play bingo!

Andy Qunta… Simon Dupree & The Big Sound coming up too! Kippinston (!) Lodge!

Paul Huggett… Kippington Lodge had Nick Lowe in the lineup I think.

Alan Esdaile… Yes your right Paul and involved into Brinsley Schwarz.

Chris Jolly… Sat January 18 – KIPPINSTON LODGE!

Andre Martin… Simon Dupree and The Big Sounds, Kites, excellent record used to get a lot of air time on BBC Radio London with Robbie Vincent in th 70s. Worked with Episode Six and of course the House Band = well almost Kippington Lodge when John Schofield was promoting the Happy Ballroom in 1968. Again just how many future “Names” were learning their trade on Hastings Pier or Witch Doctor/Cobweb.

Ian Williams… I worked with Dave Cottam in the ’70’s – great bass player. The band was fronted by Will Young, I believe? Roger Siggery on drums.

The Nashville Teens – Aquarius 14th July 1973

Alan Oliver… I think I saw them at the White Rock about 1988

Ronald Burgoyne… They were the first group I saw they opened first night at the Witchdoctor

Mick Knight… Me to!

Mike Wright… Saw them back Carl Perkins and Chuck Berry at Hammersmith Odeon in about 1964….what a show

Paul Huggett… Portsmouth Guildhall, about 1965 with my late mate Pete Thurlow who lived down there.

Gerry Fortsch… I think we were called The House Shakers or The Frantics, it was a long time ago. The band was Paul Ritchie drums, Graham Bradley guitar, Rob Keely guitar, I think the guy singing was Wil Tate and me on bass. This would have been1964/5.
