Just three bands from the late 60-s/early 70-s from my hometown. In those days somehow The Hague delivered numerous bands.
I used to deliver the daily paper at the house where the Earrings’ singer lived. Great guy. Still is.
I shouted “more tits!!” at the local festival when Mud (ffs) was performing after Earth and Fire (or was it her) just gave a great show.
I had a huge poster in my bedroom of Mariska Veres. Unfortunately died in 2006, age 59. The lead singer I witnessed performing at a small gymnastic hall, the well known Vliegermolen that hosted numerous great band worldwide (Who, Eagles, Police, Roxy Music, Slade, Rod Stewart to name a few).
In 1976 I turned into a City fan and started to take an interest in the Manc scene. Still do. Not too bad either …
Lived in Swinton near some members of Happy Mondays. Used to see Shaun and a few mates walking to Town down the East Lancs.
James (Jimmy Glennie and Paul Gilbertson) formed from my high school in Northern Moor, Wythenshawe. And I was born up Moston Lane, where David Bowie once had an offie.
