Alan Esdaile… Anyone remember this gig?

Martyn Baker… Well, I definitely played the gig with Tich, Martin, Roger, Piers, Wesley, Andy. I think Dupree were friends of Tich’s. Long time ago!

Neil Cartwright…  ‘Bands for Kelly’, event was to raise money for a young girl called Kelly who had a medical condition. The bands who played were: Hat Trick, The Havaiians , Electra Blitz, Sprayman and the Teenage Idols and The Edge. I have audio recordings of everybody.

Barry French… The event was organised to raise funds for a young girl called Kelly Smith who was very sick. Supported by family & my two great friends Dennis Wootton & Neil Cartwright we proceeded to get the wheels in motion to play a few tunes & raise some cash. As always in Hastings,other musicians kindly offered their services & Bands For Kelly was born. Roger Carey, Den & I also played a short impromptu Hat Trick set. It was a great evening for a lovely cause.

Jan Warren… The Cunning Stunts ………. hahahahahahaha, brilliant name!!

Pete Prescott… What a band ha ha !

Karen Sweatman…Brilliant line up! Oh happy days

Ernest Ballard… I’d forgotten this one

Alan Vale… I remember this gig just about, there was a video, I played bass for various bands at that gig

Pete Prescott… The Boring Farts were the pre Highway Band. Same songs etc. Nigel on drums, John Laidlaw on guitar Dave woods (guitar. Sadly didn’t show for the gig) Roger Carey bass and me. I loved the rehearsals.

Tim Moose Bruce… We(the Blind Bats) supported Cunning Stunts and Cracked Mirror at a biker party in Camber in the 80s. A wild night

Janet Rennie… Excellent, I love a pun

Pete Houghton… Vicious Mind’s were great that night

Willie Wicking… Think it may have been local band Footloose. Photo of The Carlisle after Mods had put all the windows in on bank holiday.

Iain Cobby… Definitely Footloose with a young but bearded Harry Randall. In front of a packed upstairs at the Carlisle is Brian Setchfield singing his heart out, Harry and me, with my long departed Ric 4001, behind the captain!

Mike Waghorne… And Brian now has silver hair or he did the last time I saw him

Harry Randall… not sure but that might be the back of Tony Bridger on the left?  Same shirt? Sound check!

Paul Dengate… I came across this rather nice large poster while having a sort out of boxes in the attic. March 25th 1977 at The Carlisle. Can’t particularly remember the gig, but I know I was there as I got paid!

Yvonne Cleland… Oh this was such a good gig! It was when Shipley had the Carlisle, wasn’t it? Alexis Korner was lovely x

Chris Baker… He also came down to play with Pete Sansom, his pianist from way back. I was playing bass with him at the time.

Tony Court-holmes… i was there

Paul Sleet… me too

Martyn Baker… I was at this gig with a few of my college friends. It wasn’t all that busy. He was already a legend, yet playing upstairs at The Carlisle! Anyone else remember? It was a somewhat chaotic gig as far as I remember, but Alexis was in great form.

 

Footloose at The Carlisle 1970’s

supplied by Harry Randall

Harry Randall… Once upon a time a long long long long time ago when I had Hair a Les Paul Custom and a Marshall! Those were the days! Not allowed anymore how times have changed! The Carlisle about 1979 from left to right Tony Bridger (Guitar) Will Powell (Drums) Brian Setchfield (vocals) Iain Cobby (Bass) and myself HARRY Randall (guitar) would love to see any other photos kicking around!

Phil Gill… nice pic, thanks for sharing. I always loved Tony’s playing when I was in Stallion, he had great tone, was always concise and consistent and played with intent. The two of you together must have been a joy. Remember my first Stallion studio outing aged 19 with Phil Cordell as producer and Tony on guitar. He was right on the money.

Harry Randall… yes one of the greats, I think I played about eight years in all I remember phoning the Star at Normans bay for a gig and they said never had bands before eventually we were picking the bar out 5 deep so asked for an increase for our meagre gig money only to be told there’s the door! Typical.

Tim Moose Bruce… Loved the set list you guys did. Foreigner, Boston, Styx Quo, Lizzy and loads more.

Harry Randall… Yeah a lot of people knocked us for doing covers but in those days they were pretty obscure bands in UK bigger in Belgium things like Cold as ice and Hot blooded! Played that LP to death!

Iain Cobby… What is that on my head? Playing my old Ric 4001 . Harry and I recently worked on Brian’s Video for ” Freedom Ride” . Missing Tony and have many such memories of him then and pre Stallion, many of which would be unprintable. Do remember carting gear up those stairs! good times.

Tim Moose Bruce… 1st time I saw you in this band(1978 at the Wheatsheaf), you had a doubleneck guitar.

Harry Randall… Tim, that was my Ibanez be worth a lot of money now same as my JTM 45 Marshall everything was hand written on it it was that old

Tim Moose Bruce… Saw a pair of Ibanez doubleneck guitars in the 80s in Cass Music in Eastbourne. About the same time I bought my Shergold doubleneck from Birds Music.

Wee Jock… Love the photo, stacks, wem columns, concert toms

Tim Moose Bruce… Wee, And Brian’s vocals going through a Copycat. Sounded great.

Harry Randall… Wee, used to pack out the Star at Normans Bay, landlord said the tiles were coming off the roof LOL! I remember phoning them and arranging the gig at a low fee as they never had bands after several months and the bar getting 5 deep to get served asked for a raise as we had by then established it well and truly only to be told “No”! So pulled out!

Mike Waghorne… Never missed any of your gigs at the Star even the Runt & Tun at Heathfield was a good gig

Harry Randall… Miss this double neck ! If anyone has any photos of those days please post them or pm me we only have about 5 and I know a few were taken at gigs!

Harry Randall… Tim, finally got a photo of it! Broke a string so had to change it during break

flyer supplied by Mick Mepham and cutting supplied by Iain Cobby

Mick O’Dowd…..Thanx Mick I hadn’t got a copy of this. Footloose were quite a good localband but don’t hear much about them now.

Chris Pook…..Really liked Footloose.

Mick O’Dowd….Yeah Chris. Remember the drummer played for Beez Neez when Mark was indisposed at The Carlisle.

Mark Chapman… We met Brian for the first time today at the west end of Bexhill on the beech front. What a polite, interesting and informative chat. Just checked out the discography and history of rock bands. Great stuff and still very fit and kicking. We look forwards to meeting up again in the near future and probably by pure chance again. All the best Rock’n’ Roll. Mark and Julie

Harry Randall… That very gig “Sound Check” would love to see any photo’s of us! Check out “Freedom Ride” by Brian on You Tube it’s all that’s left of “Footloose”!

Tim Moose Bruce… Before the Storm. Bunch of young lads who started out a bit off key but improved by leaps and bounds every time they gigged. Changed their name to Billy Wizz later on.
