Hi I know we’re now in 2017 and these comments are from 3 yrs ago but does anyone know the name of the other band that appeared with Red Sun at the Locarno in Birmingham back in the late 70’s plz ?
I’m Edwina, singer from a Red Sun. These were the best times.
I’d love to still do it now.
I used to go to the Locarno when I was 16…. told them I was 18. Remember Red Sun. So many good memories but can’t remember another band. Just the disco in the other room, Bali Hi??? Would love to see some pics of Red Sun. Thank you for the memories and the fab nights, you were all great!
Hi, I used to come and see John & the band in Butlins in Minehead many moons ago. I actually fell upon a cassette of theirs today!! After playing it it brought back great memories of that time.
My Dad was in this band at some point (Gil Monks). He still plays in Spain, where he lives. I’ve sent him a link to this x
