I know of 3 dates from 1977 when Easy Cure supposedly played in Queens Square, Crawley. These are June 3 (Friday), July 3 (Sunday) and October 9 (Sunday).
In my opinion this concert was held on July 3, 1977 (out of the three possible dates). Why? I explain it below.
Books "Ten Imaginary Years" and "A Visual Documentary" say Easy Cure played a Peace Concert in Queens Square on June 3 and the local press published an article about it. But the article says their gig was on Sunday, not Friday.
Both Michael Dempsey (http://www.mdmmedia.com/mdm/cure3.htm) and the book "Never Enough" say that the footage of the October 9 gig appears on "Staring At The Sea". In that video we see Peter O'Toole singing. However, "Ten Imaginary Years" says that Peter O'Toole quit on September 12 and Robert took over singing duties.
The video seems to be recorded on a hot, sunny day. A lady in a summer dress waving a fan, men in t-shirts or even topless. July 3 was one of the hotest days of 1977, the highest temperature was 27-28°C at Heathrow Airport, 30 miles from Crawley (goo.gl/rALhrP). On June 3 it was between 19-24°C and on October 9 it was 16-17°C.
According to the books "Ten Imaginary Years" and "Never Enough", 300 people turned up for the Peace concert. But on the video on "Staring At The Sea" we never see a crowd, just a few dozen people watching them.
We know the advertising poster for "Peace Party" (http://www.mdmmedia.com/mdm/pictures/...) and it has the date October 9. So we can be sure that "Ten Imaginary Years" and "A Visual Documentary" is wrong about the date of the gig.
And also, based on all the things mentioned above, we can be quite sure that the video on "Staring At The Sea" wasn't recorded at the "Peace Party" but at another time.
The book "Clinical Prescriptions" says the "Staring At The Sea" footage was recorded on July 3 and it seems the correct date to me.
And as for June 3, that gig never happened, it's just a typo.
