Wishful Thinking and The Brotherhood – The Cobweb St Leonards 3rd August 1968

Colin Norton… Hi Alan, I was the drummer with The Brotherhood. Other members were Keith Hurley on lead guitar and Kes Jenkinson on bass/vocals. It was a good gig as far as I recall. Here’s the actual poster… No photos of this band unfortunately.

Robert Searle… They were a pretty good pop harmony group.Two songs they recorded were Clear White Light and Hiroshima .

Andy Knight… So who were Shades of Innocence? Were they local?

Alan Esdaile… Can’t find anything on Shades Of Innocence. Anyone? All I could find was a band called Shades Of Black who came from Ashford, Kent.

Andy Qunta… I remember Wishful Thinking! Really good!

Colin Norton… I remember playing a support gig to Wishful Thinking at the Cobweb. They had their Decca Live album out at the time and a single called “Step By Step”. Nice bunch of guys!

Pete Houghton… Wishful thinking used to be called The Emerald’s in 2005 they reformed with Kevin Finn Brian Allen Terry Collier John Franklin also they had something to do with that’ll be the day soundtrack

Mick O’Dowd… Battle Memorial Hall hosted several interesting gigs.
