Oh My God Lopster - I saw The Enid at The Sweet in Brighton in about 1982. I thought I was the only one in the world who had heard of them.

I played a fairy in "La boutique...." in a Southover School production and woke all the toys up with my magic wand, about a million years ago, if not two.

Lopster, just niticed your post on the 11th (right down the bottom of this page) about Genesis. What do you think of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway? I still oove it.

used to love the Enid (still play their first album an awful lot hence "Lovers") must've seen them about 10 times - really peed off the 6th form common room playing their first(!!!) single "Golden Earrings" at every available opportunity (on a record player, remember them) - Lamb was the first Genesis CD I bought when re-building the vinyl collection - LA you are definitely the first person I know of that's heard of them - let alone SEEN them outside of about 6 people whom I haven't contacted since about 1885 - used The Enid to fill live music gaps left as Genesis, ELP and Yes became unattainable (stadium gigs at 5 a ticket!!!) or folded - hmmm

Sure you're not an ex-bat expat (hanging upside down, you are a way away aren't you - concerned to hear of you scaring children with your magic Wand, the world is not as innocent now as it was back then - :-) )

Have every Yes album on vinyl too!

Lot of of fans of prog and heavy rock on this forum. Posters seem to be of a similar age / taste. Scary!

I think it's more likely that only those with an interest in the thread are actually posting. This one is obviously attracting people with decent taste in music, and a lot of the good sounds were made pre early 1980's, hence a lot of us are a similar age! Don't think Rossini is similar taste to Peter Gabriel though. Creative, but different.

I think you're both righ. Lewes to me, is blessed with a strong history of people who listen to this great music, which echoes through this town. No matter how many chavs (sorry, Chav!) saturate this town with their 'Shake My Booty and Look at my Ass Wobble, with mi G-String Half Way up mi Back' stuff, they will never ever phase out the true sounds of Prog Rock.
I do like Eminem though as he writes very clever songs!!

Can.....Now that's a haunt from the past. I used to have an album by Can which had a track on it called Hunters and Collectors. Brilliant. Someone borrowed it and never gave it back. :-(
Currently listening to Celtarabia, Ancient Forces.

Hunters and Collectors is on Tago Mago - I remember it well.
Nick Drake - He was John Martyns best mate before he topped himself I've always thought I should have a listen to him but never have. Any reocomendations Zola?

1.Five Leaves left.
2.Bryter Later.
3.Pink Moon.
Shame he died so young,and John Martyn bears more than a passing resemblance..The 1st two I would recommend.
He turned up on an advert tonight,which jolted my memory.Look him up on You Tube,there is a 4 part documentary on him.Interesting.Gabriella Drake is his sister,remember her?Happy hunting.

South Downs Way 106:132
South Downs Way

Worst recorded Lewes river Ouse flooding January 1772 (235 cubic metres per second dishcarge). October 1852 2nd worst (230 cmps).... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
