Joe Knight… Wow!!! 16
Mick O’Dowd… The Riot Squad! What a group! Fantastic! There’s my other faves Candy Choir in there as well. Fab!
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.
