Great to hear, nice story of nearly "making it" too, that's a lot further than 99% of bands get!

Just thought, I wonder if Black Sabbath played twice in Folkestone around that time? As the first gig I added here for 1970 was supposedly at the Art College. Not sure where I got that info from, possibly Marmalade Skies1... lots of folkestone there2...

This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and things, + I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
