About this memory

1966 – The International Club or “Nash” as it was known was a very popular venue that we played regularly. Situated on Princes Street just above the Watches of Switzerland store it occupied 2 floors, the main one having a stage at both ends. The venue was managed by Jimmy Roccio who latterly became father in law to Smiggy (Robert Smith) lead guitarist for THE HIPPLE PEOPLE in 1968.

We always made an effort to present a strong vocal performance at all our gigs and this one at The International Club or “Nash” shows our 3 main vocalists in full flow. Far left is David our first and main singer, in the middle is Ian Nicol who’s main task was to support David, add to the harmonies and also take on lead vocals when required and on the night right Sandy Lax who carried out most of the main harmony duties.
