Should this read The Kingsmen of Louie Louie fame, or a completely different band?
Mick O’Dowd… I think it is the Kinsmen. Don’t remember The Kingsmen actually touring the Uk as they were an American outfit and I think I would have gone to see them if they did.
Andre Martin… THE KINGSMEN were a group from Portland Oregon.Louis Louis was released in 1963 and held the no 2 slot on the Billboard chart for 6 weeks. Re-released again in 1966 it did chart, but much lower down.

Karen Sweatman….Not seventies, but thought you might be interested in these from early nineties – Jump The Gun. Think I took these downstairs at The James Burton. Happy days of light moshing!
Mick Mepham….Ernie Ballard behind the kit, I think.
Karen Sweatman….Guy on bass is somebody called Clive. Guitarist and singer – Dave Woods
Mick Mepham….Blimey, didn’t recognize Dave!! Good player.
Barty…..What ever happened to dave clive & ernie?
Ernest Ballard… We are all alive and kicking. If we can find Clive we will get the band back together

Pete Fairless… What a great film!
Derek Clemans… Bloody hell. … I went to see that at the Curzon.
Carol Ann Bolton… I’ve not heard of this before. Must try and see it?
Graham Burfield… Just watched it on DVD still a great film
Mick Knights… The Curzon was a delight at the matinee interval when tea and biscuits were available, which reflected the age of their usual cinema goer!!!

Sarah Harvey… A choice of music on this day in 1969. The Late on the Pier and Toast at the Cobweb.
Andre Martin… The Road, were a local Band but I have no knowledge or memories of the Go Go Dancers on the Thursday Night. I cannot think why anybody would try and run against such a strong show at that with Steve Maxted at the Cobweb, it does not make any business logic.
Nicola Dobson… These were my years at the Cobweb loved it there! Summer of 69 first summer out of school!
