Alan Esdaile… Great find Phil. Stringer Jones, was a duo with Martin Stringer and Malcolm Jones.
Martyn Baker… Malcolm Jones was the other half of Stringer-Jones with Martin Stringer in Hastings (1975-6). I kind of re-met Malcolm again when we both worked for Capital Radio in the 80’s. Martin now lives in the west of Ireland. Both top geezers.
Harry Randall… RIP Vic/Tony and Steve gone to young! Sadly missed I’m sure by all who new them!
Leigh Wieland-Boys… My that takes me back. Fond memories of Steve D, rest in peace dear friend.
Martin Stringer… Crikey.

Here’s a great recording of ‘Circus’ venue unknown.
Wesley Magoogan…. Those Observer adverts were the center of some of our lives then.Whomever was on the advert for the pier were that week’s big deal !
Phil Gill… I was there, it was a brilliant gig.
Ticket supplied by Nick Webb, Photo of Marc Bolan (T Rex) from a 1973 ABC Television In Concert performance.
Chris Meachen…..Ah, T.Rex… The only time I ever saw the bouncers scared, as a tide of pubescent girls flooded through the gates, sweeping them aside in the crush to get to the front of the stage. One of them even got his arm pushed through the glass of the main doors, & any attempt to check tickets was futile
Glenn Caroline Piper….I first saw T-Rex in 1971 at Brighton Dome. Mickey Finn was there and Bolan did some acoustic numbers from Tyrannosaurus Rex days. My first live gig
Pete Zinc-alloy… by the time marc played hastings mickey finn and bill legend had left the band.my mates in the support group played a set equal to marc’s band
Phil Thornton… I remember this well, John Wilde (our frontman) was interviewed for ‘Sounds’ by Julie Birchell who thought he was Marc !!! – we got to meet him and Gloria backstage, lovely people. rip Marc.
Alan Esdaile… Still looking for a poster for this gig and photos, anyone?
Karen Sweatman… I love T Rex, but was only five years old
John Wilde… This was a great gig for us (Stallion) and a good evening for everyone. I was deeply offended when Marc told me to “fuck off out of my dressing room”.
Terry Pack…. I was at this one. Stallion were excellent. T Rex were disappointing: the drummer in particular was very loud and seemed to have no technique at all. Marc Bolan looked unwell, I thought.
Phil Thornton… didn’t remember that part of the evening John Alexander Wilde all things considered I think you came out on top !!
Kevin Burchett… I was there but don’t remember a thing probaly very drunk lol
Peter Houghton… Great band one of my fave song’s was little people

Jo Turner… Oh I loved these competitions and have great memories of jumping in the back of someone’s van frequently in later years to follow local bands doing the competition rounds. Was it Michael Mepham who had the van?
Wesley Magoogan… I remember that well, there were lots of shenanigans between us and Stallion lol.
