I attended a gig in April 1978 at the Montefiore Institute Hall in Three Bridges in Crawley.
After talking to my close friend Rob, he produced a ticket for the gig on 22 April 1978.
Rob sang with a local band called Flight and a mutual friend, Malcolm, wanted to arrange something for his 21st birthday party.
I understand Paul Clarke, who fancied himself as a local promoter, arranged for Easy Cure to top the bill with Flight supporting.
Let Rob continue....
"Paul Clark organized it. I don't know why. You would have to ask Malc I can't remember. Roys amp blew up halfway and Nobby went home and got his from 118 North Road. They put Fish Rising on as fill music and I stayed on the stage and sang along with the first few lines,and we all laughed,including you! Mel(RIP) and others sold hot dogs at the door to the side room. Smithy finished the set with "subway"wearing an old mac lying on his back playing an Harmonica."
Rob and I had crossed paths with Rob Smith and I in the past when we had played for the same Sunday League football team, Three Bridges Wasps (Smithy played on the wing) - my only memory of the Easy Cure gig was that the guitarist (Porl Thompson) was a star but the others weren't so hot. (looking at the other dates on your site it seems this was Porl's last gig with the band, so what do I know!)
I also remember being rather stoned and getting told off by a policemen for peeing against the wall outside (rock'n'roll!)
Flight was made up of:
Rob Stockdale - vocals
Roy Sudan - Guitar
Nick Keates - Drums
Dave Turner - Bass
Kevin Cohen - Keyboards
They played a few gigs around Crawley before heading off on a jaunt round Ireland with Jim Duggan during which they (in some cases quite literally) disintegrated...
I notice that Kevin's old band, Amulet, headlined the St Wilfred's Malice gig in 1976.
