Sarah Harvey… November 2nd, 1968. No information regarding this group….anyone else?
Mick O’Dowd… New one on me perhaps St Johns Wood members might remember.
Ray Harper… Saw Modes Mode at The Continental more than once and Eastbourne Town Hall. They played blues and soul music in particular Curtis Mayfield. I thought they were from Brighton but they are not listed on Brightonbeat .com site. Great band though.
Amanda Hawkings… The drummer in Modes Mode was my cousin Clifford Grensted. The manager was my uncle Brian Grensted. They were based in the London area. The photo was taken in Stanmore, I believe.
Mike Mitchell… That’s a fabulous suit on the right there.
Lil Fuller… Brian Grenstead ( “Mr.G”) was our neighbour in Stanmore ..we lost touch when we left for Australia in 1970. He lived around the corner but our back garden in Tintagel Drive backed onto his… think He was Manager of Modes Mode then ..in the late 60’s ??? He was always wonderful to our late Mum Sheila and Us Kids and we have many Happy Memories. Fond Regards to His Family from Old Neighbours The Fuller’s … now in Adelaide …Down Under xx
Remember Miriam Karlin in The Rag Trade…
Pauline Richards… Yes. Blowing a whistle shouting…..everybody out!!
Andre Martin… This Chris Gentry bloke get about – when I think of all the events that we were involved in at some point, and now the organisations just have gone. The town is that much poorer and the young people missing out on so much. Just look at the admission price 2/- wow.
Mick O’Dowd… Hurst Court has gone as well Andre/Chris/Marshall etc.etc.etc

Andre Palfrey-martin collection
Peter Millington…..I make the date as being 7th February 1970
Rob Sargent… I remember the photo session, on the beach just below the Wish Tower. Hope you’re all still rocking and enjoying it as much as I am.
Lynne Norris… I found this site accidentally and it triggered many memories of my teenage years and some really good music. I remember The Spooks and 4-Bidden well when they played upstairs at Club Continental. As a 16-year old, I absolutely adored Dave Shaw and I was beside myself when we moved to Burrow Down and Dave Shaw and his family lived just over the road from us at Den Hill. Dave had this big old tank of a car and he would give me a lift sometimes. I am pleased that he kept on rocking and am I sad to hear that he has passed away.
