Ken Copsey… 40 years ago! Colour outake from our single cover shoot Hastings Pier. Many thanks to Ray Fenwick for sending these to me.

Colin Jefferys… Blimey blast from the past …. was this just before you buggered off to Canada ( can’t help myself) did quite well over there I recall. I could of come with you but I had to pay my own air fare and at 17 did not have that kind of cash. Loved hanging round with you guys though. Thanks for the memories though

Peter Fairless… That was great, if a little odd… The Photos were good!

Ken Copsey… Aggro with the skinhead contingent which wasn’t very Greenpeace. Looking at the list of promoters at the top of the poster I wonder if that is the Andy McConnell the glass specialist who lives in Rye now?

Tony Ham… The name I remember is Blast Furnace and the Heatwaves, think they only had two as the ice cream van got tipped over by skinheads.

Ken Copsey… Blast Furnace was Charles Shar Murray’s band. Lee Lewis was always great. We played with him again in Swansea.
