Rikki’s ‘Do’


S. Pier gig 001

Remember that one? Ten bob as with yesterday’s one, seems to have been the going price. Again many thanks to Graham Laker.

(I missed it because in our first month together gigging, my beloved Rosemary were playing at Chords Club in Lymington)

  1. This was one (the first?) of a number times McKenna Mendelson Mainline played in Portsmouth. Fronted by Mendelson Joe they were a great blues band of their time with an interesting line in lyrics. Mendelson Joe, based in Toronto, has released some solo material and also spends time as a painter. http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/mendelson-joe-emc/

  2. Yeah, remember that. Great band Mckenna Mendelson – unusually still got their album

    • According to my records the headline act was the Gun. Did that change TO the Pretty Things or did it change FROM the Pretty Things to the Gun or are my records just wrong? Anyone know? I did incidentally play support to the Gun at Kimbells a few months earlier in the last incarnation of (no longer Harlem) Speakeasy
