Sarah Harvey… Pop Scene from December 8th, 1973. Two more bands I am not sure have been mentioned yet…. Penny Black playing at The Yorkshire Grey and ‘King Rod’ playing at The Regent Hotel (Remember seeing a few bands play live there.

Dave Nattress… The Prisoners – Andy Leaney, (RIP), Robin Heggie, (RIP), Mick Bridgeland and myself had our first gig at the Yorkshire Grey, God knows when – about 1979 and the abiding memory is of Robin’s disgust when looking around the stage pre-gig/soundcheck to plug in some amps to find the landlord’s dog had left a really big curly-whirly cumberland sausgage there.  I can see Robin’s face now!!  Real rock n roll moment that one. Funny the things you remember!!

Dave Weeks… The first gig I attended at the pier I think.

Andy Qunta… Both great bands! Saw them many times, & I’m pretty sure Factory was on the same bill with them more than once!

Tony Court-holmes… forgot about king rod

Shaft – Yorkshire Grey 1974

Andy Knight (drums), Jim Beadle (bass), Bob Shipway (guitar), Colin Pierce (guitar), Dave Shaw (vocal), Ross Holter (mixing).

Harry Randall… Jim use to play bass in met band in 67-68 “The Lloyd Milligan Sound” an 8 piece soul band who basically went pro to Keel but got fiddled (didn’t wait for contract)

Judith Monk… Loved the ‘Grey’ used to play bar billiards there.

Tony Court-holmes… used to be good for a fight I remember but still some good bands played there
