Lynn Graham… I spent so much time here
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:
Trevor Webb… Interesting coincidence .just reading biography of David Bowie by Simon Goddard Ziggyology a brief History of Ziggy Stardust. I was never into David Bowie at School but a number of my friends were. Apparently David Bowie met the Lower Third a beat group from Margate in La Gioconda in Denmark Street, London. No mention of Hastings gigs.
The New Breed. Supplied by Mark Mackenzie – John Couchman, Peter Anderson, Joseph Black, Mark Mackenzie, Chris Wilson and Roger Fox.
Eddie Larnerd Lane… Heinz great song Just like Eddie
Mark Mackenzie… I was the drummer with The New Breed on that gig and seem to remember that we also did the Witch Doctor in Catford, we worked for Radio Caroline .
Nigel Ford… My Aunt took my Bruv & I to see either Ferry Cross the Mersey with Gerry & the Pacemakers or a Beatles film at the Gaiety, Queens Road around ’63 (?) and the supporting film starred Heinz, but I can’t remember the title, but vividly remember my Aunt saying afterwards “thank you for introducing me to Heinz”
Alan Esdaile… I think it must be ‘Live It Up’ Nigel. Great clip below, a rather young looking Steve Marriott.
Nigel Ford… Could that be Jet Harris on guitar ? I seem to recognise him? Looking on allmusic.com it seems it was likely Ritchie Blackmore, ‘ knew the face was familiar from somewhere…
Mick O’Dowd… Saw “The Blonde One” in The Tornadoes as Billy Fury’s backing band at The ABC( now ESK) in Cambridge Road.
