Pete Fisher… In the early 80s, while I was living in North Norfolk, Alan Haven (who lived there on the coast) showed up at a village hall gig my band was doing, and afterwards said he’d like to record us. We ended up doing a couple of tracks at his home studio, and he played a Moog solo on one of them. Have to dig out the cassette…
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:
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 .
Alan Esdaile… Have you got any photos of The New Breed, Mark?
Mark Mackenzie… Alas no,i had loads but all lost in a move overseas,still trying to track down the other guys ,John Couchman ,Joe Black ,Colin Wilson ,and Roger Fox….
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.
