Pete Millington… The fourth line-up of SPYKE playing at the Queens Hotel 10th April 1971 – Looks like we’ve just been told “Trust me lads – the cheque’s in the post”

Chris Baker… I thought I was the only one with a daft haircut in those days! 😁

Pete Millington… We all had ’em along with everyone else!

Yvonne Cleland… Ah still miss Chris. x

Colin Fox… The Mike Stuart Span seem to have been popular in Hastings. Does anyone know anything about them? and does anyone know the support bands?

Mysterons – Hastings 1968

supplied by Bernard Goffredo

Bernard Goffredo… Thanks to Tony Killick for the photo, probably the first proper gig. I think it was the church hall at the top of Clifton Road. Stephen Moran singing and he also played piano, me (Bernard Jeffrey) on drums and Tony Killick on guitar on the right. The other guitarist is I think called Paul Snook but I might have got that wrong

Supplied by Stephen Moran

Stephen Moran… This is one of Bernard Jeffrey and I playing one of our church hall gigs I’m fairly sure this was about 1968. Tony moved to Manchester and the short-lived Mysterons were no more! We did have a couple of auditions for TV shows! Bernie and I played together as a duo just for fun really. We played a few times at the RAF club in Wellington Square or anywhere that had a piano! It was clear then that Bernie was a very talented drummer.

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.

Little John and The Shadrocks – The Cobweb 2nd November 1968

Mick O’Dowd… Not heard of them even though I was a Jay Boy lable fan.

Tony Court-holmes… I  was only 16 then

Andrea Rashford-Hewitt… Little John & The Shadrocks were a popular group in London within the black community in the 60’s and 70″s. They sang Motown Otis Reading etc and wrote songs too. Little John was the lead singer. They played across Europe.
