Third Southend Punk Reunion Gathering took place on - appropriately enough
for a day of resurrection - Easter Sunday April 08th 2007 and was a great
evening. Giacomino Parkinson of Southend
Sites and The Dim Locator took some cool shots of the evening - see
the above galleries for the photographs.
Punks both past and present and from all eras attended - including known
representatives from such bands as The Machines, The Kronstadt Uprising,
The Bleeding Pyles, The Sinyx, and Steve Hooker.
On the night The Get, The Prey, The Spurts, The Convicted, RetroSpex and
Hotwired all performed to an enthusiastic crowd, with The Spurts especially
going that extra mile - literally - as singer Steve flew in from his base
in Spain especially for the gig! Given it was the first time the band
had played together since 1979, it really was a special event.
Apologies to anyone whom we didn't manage to make contact with, or photograph
at the event.
Enjoy the Galleries - More events will be planned.
Thanks to Andi Schurer, Red and crew for pulling this particular event
together, and as always I'd like to extend my gratitude and thanks to
all of you whom told me how much they have enjoyed the website - Southendpunk.com
- it's made all the late nights and long hours I've spent creating, maintaining
and updating it worthwhile!
