Ha ha - that's great! God, that's my early childhood. Everyone looked like Paul Rogers out of Free - men and women!

Wow, amazing though frustratingly shot footage. Declan's dungarees, seen in photos only before, should surely make a comeback.

Thanks for posting John. When was this discovered?

Dungarees were quite a fashion in London around 1974. I remember lots of kids wearing purple ones held up with black and white straps. (me included)

If you look closely, several members of the forum appear to be in the crowd, - i can definitely see So LackLustre and Man Out Of Time in earlier incarnations and maybe a pre-pubescent JF as well :wink:
The only doubt is - did Neil have long hair in 1974 though ??!!!

Paul posts on Facebook-

I've shared this with the guitarist in Flip City, Steve Hazlehurst. He didn’t know there was film of it, so he’s made up!!
One of the tracks is apparently called “Hog For You Baby” (!)
After this they rushed off to play a gig at Newlands Tavern in Peckham Rye.

two songs can be heard here:
I´m a hog for you baby (The Coasters), later included on the first Dr Feelgood album Down by the Jetty
and
This old heart of mine (Isley brothers), that is well known for the version by Rod Stewart on his Atlantic Crossing LP

If only mate, sadly we didn't have a camera back then and there are next to no photos of me in the early 70's
