Hi Mart...........see Andy once a year, every year at Prestatyn in March..........never forget the first time about 5/6 years ago?........I was DJ'ing in the Vic on the Friday and in he walked......hadn't seen him for nearly 20 years and we instantly recognised each other. It was great to get to meet him again.........had some great trips up to Parr Hall in his old Austin A60 van,either from his then home, in Oadby, or picking us up along the way. He was married to Tracy at that time. Still got one of his tapes "All Night Floorshakers Vol #?"......Vince Apollo, Scotty Willimas......loads of goodies!

Now lives on Isle of White and I'm sure he said he ran a B&B or similar???

O.M.G. That is Chad (not seen him for years), Dave Wheeler ( last time I saw him has Bretby in about 98 and at that time he was living in the very top part of Scotland in a croft), Sarah Ward, Sharron Harris aka "panda"( she ended up marrying Briam Mickelwright aka "pickle", "spin", they had a house together in Barwell, but it all ended with Pickle selling everything in the house to get his next fix. The last I saw of her she was very happily settled with her new Guy, Me, and Gaz Keen in front.

Great pic, will have to have a rummage and see what I can find

It certainly was. I bought his Lambretta off him, really bad silver overblack metal flake side panels and I think it had a rat on it somewhere! I forgot about Jane!

Yeah, I remember that scoot, and it did have a rat on it. Last time I saw Colin, he had just bought a new vespa, had it for about a week and thought what the f**k and choped it in for a big bike. He was living in Derby at the time, this must have been round about 1995.

The Durkopp scoot that I had is now in Beaulie motor museum and I've still got my LI 2 that I use most days for getting around the Island.

Hi Mark,

As promised a pic of the old A60 van we used to go up and down the country in, long before the seat belt law, and health and safety n all that.

It might have been grey primer when you knew it, If you look on the Blackburn t.v. documentary you can see it at the end parked outside.

Happy days
