  1. Schoolgirl was the first single. LeSoliel had my brother George playing Drums. We were 17 years old, George was 14. It was a fantastic time to be alive. JohnB

  3. Yes, that’s it! I remember they had some union jacks up and some Carnaby Street signage. Very hip place to shop! I remember John Brownrigg served me at the time! I was 18 so it must have been 1968.

    1. Great guys great music that is why they won battle of bands (65/66 not quite sure). My girlfriend & I used to go go dance with them. Went to school with both Paul’s. Was very close to Scotty for many years. Would love to catch up with them now living back on Gold Coast.

  7. Sorry I didn’t get back to you, just found this again. Yes I swam at Dunlop park with Paul & Bonnie Hallas, the Paul’s, Myra Young. My dad was the first life member of the swimming club. What is your real name, we probably know each other. Bonnie & I both worked at Main Roads after school so used to go down to Steve’s shop all the time. Lots of international artists used to shop in there as well. Myra still does aerobics classes at the pool and the people that own it now are happy for us to have a reunion there. Would you be interested? We would love to plan it we had such fun at the club and the pool. Do you remember Ian & Bruce Berry? They swam as well. Myra has given me the list of all the people who swam in the club it is very interesting. Remember Bobby & JoAnn Barnes and Marilyn Hoskin & her cousin Pauline Roberts? I can contact some of them as Myra can but we would need some help and limit the time to when we all swam or else we could end up with a thousand there. Please get back to me on this.

  8. Would love to see the photo with Ralph in the band if you can send it. Ralph still sees Paul Hunt and riddett when he is around. I saw Scotty last year at Paul Morgans band reunion that was great. I played squash sometimes with Ralph & 2 Paul’s boy they ran me ragged no being nice because I was a girl, but great fun and so many great memories from those times. Corinda high was such a good school and some good musos came out of there. We had so much fun don’t know how I actually passed my Junior not with straight A’s as some but enough to get me a good job and the cops who came into main RDS would often let us into the shows at festival & town halls, so we saw a lot of shows. Jim Hansen worked at main roads with us too. I also saw him at the reunion last year.
