Joe Knight….what happened to steve maxted ? use to go to catford DESMOND DEKOR!!! lots of great bands

Andre Martin….Joe – Steve Maxted still going strong well into the late 1970s. – Above is an advert from 1974. I have some later images waiting to be uploaded and indexed.

John Storer… Apropos of not much, my late Mum absolutely loved Edgar Broughton’s “Apache Dropout”. Remember seeing Barclay James Harvest and thought Hudson/Ford were actually much better than I was expecting

Mick Mepham….Hurrrraahhhhh! I hadn’t got this flier – have now yippeeeee!

Jim Breeds….Lindisfarne, BJH, Hudson/Ford. Wow, I missed some stuff I should have seen

Jenny Tyler… I loved Steve Maxted.

Phil Gill…  I was there for the New Year gig. The bouncers stopped the Stallion set at 11:45 and threw everyone out. They were really shitty about it too. Presumably they wanted to go drinking…

Mick Mepham… I remember introducing Hudson/Ford and making a total twat of myself doing so ….. blusho ……

Yvonne Cleland…. You were nowt but a lad, MM 🙂

Mick Knights… Edgar Broughton.. The question has always been, should he have allowed the demons in in the first place!!

Alan Esdaile… Not much hope for the Apaches as well, Mick. Steve Broughton now a Hastings resident.

Glenn Piper… Oh the memories

Tony Court-holmes… god i remember edgar broughton gig out demons out

Alan Pepper… Fond memories dancing to the latest sounds in the early seventies on a Thursday night and DJ Steve madman Maxted at the decks . Was a big influence !

Jan Warren… Oh yes, Fusion Orchestra!! – I LOVED that band – I saw them many times, first at the Aquarius in Hastings, then I moved to London and saw them many times at The Marquee Club, Wardor Street, London – I still have my original copy of their (one and only) album “Skeleton in Armour”, plus I still have several posters and newspaper cuttings!! – brilliant band, still play their album!! 🙂

Alan Esdaile… Great band Fusion Orchestra. Saw them loads of times and the album does still sound good.

The Riot Squad – Witch Doctor 16th September 1967

Alan Essex… One of Joe Meek’s bands.

Lawrence Ralph… Is this the same Riot Squad, that David Bowie recorded 4 – 1967 demos with, released on a 2013 Acid Jazz label E.P ?.

Alan Essex… Yes a young David Bowie joined in 1967, after the death of Joe Meek. Some info and a picture here:

Mick O’Dowd… Went to the Vanity Fare gig but walked out half way through along with alot of others. The between numbers banter was absolutely pornographic. Not what you’d expect from a band like this.

Gerry Fortsch… Suspect did great Spencer Davis covers
