I, Brian, am in this photograph somewhere! This was when I was at Chatteris, and the band that I was in, called "Skid", appeared in a competition at the Wirrena. We won this! The band formed in 1969, and we were together for ten years.We played all over the Peterborough area as well as Wisbech, March and Cambridge. We also played at the American Airforce bases at Mildenhall and Lakenheath. We played for several years, before spiltting amicably. Some 25 years later, the guys met up to plan a charity gig together, but due to unforseen circumstances we were unable to carry it through. The two photographs at the foot of the page were both taken during their reunion.
