Martyn Baker… Tich Turner sent this photo of our band from 1976 to me a couple of days ago. In his own words….. “It was poster size and had been rolled up all these years. The Steppin’ Out logo had been stuck over Miniature Railway, but it had come away, and was the devil’s own job to stick back. It would have been easier to change our name to Miniature Railway! Then I had trouble getting it flat again, so I dismantled an old picture frame & print and put it inside. It’s the best we could do I’m afraid. It looks a bit battered and worn, but then hey, ain’t we all?” The band (original lineup) was: Tich Turner – Vocal, Martin Stringer- Vocal, Martyn Baker – Bass guitar, Wesley Magoogan – Saxes, Andy Knight – Drums, Roger Hubbard – Guitars & vocal, Piers Clark – Guitar
Ken Copsey… I remember watching you through the side window of the Cutter probably in 76. A real live band! I would have been 14.
Martyn Baker… Hi Ken. Hastings was pretty special in those days wasn’t it? So many of us did well eventually in the arts etc from that era…. All the best mate.
Mike Waghorne… That photo of Tich was how I remember him from college around 68/71
