Mike Mitchell… I don’t remember The Vogue but I do recall rehearsing on Saturday mornings in the basement of the New Broom.

Peter Gladwish… Vogue was my band, started in 1975 after King-Rod split up. Greg Pearce (Lead Guitar), Dave Gladwish (Bass Guitar) & Peter Gladwish (12 string Rhythm Guitar and Drums). Eric Burgess later replaced my brother, Dave, on bass guitar, when I also changed the name to Trinity. The band split in 1979 when I moved away from the area. Greg went on to play in Centre Page and when I moved back South in the early 90’s, I also joined Centre Page on drums full-time.

Alan Esdaile… Love the satin shirts (or maybe silk?) and the flairs.

Peter Gladwish… They were satin. We bought all our stage gear from ‘Underground’, at the end of the Arcade in Hastings.

Harry Randall… Chris bless him! Not only played with him as a kid but also in my band way back when we both had hair! RIP! Miss him and Tony/Vic Bridger!

Tony May… Brian Baker still lives in Hollington. He teaches guitar sometimes. He went on to be in the band, ‘Talisman’ who had an LP and single out called ‘Sounds In Our Minds’.
