Bachdenkel a Birmingham band, though not in the program, blagged their way onto this Chatenay Malabray gig.
Bass player Peter Kimberley rolled one up in the dressing room and JPJ asked if he might have a toke... "It's only Clan rolling tobacco" said Pete and JP left in disgust.
Interestingly Bachdenkel had a gig at Birmingham's Elbow Room in 1968... the club's manager asked the band if they would let a bunch of musicians who were standing at the bar "have a play" "not on our gear" was Bachdenkel's reaction. The guys at the bar were Led Zep or more likely the barely hatched New Yardbirds.
Years later I met Robert in a café in Paris, we had a friend in common (Eddie Blower) and he bought me a beer.
Ordered it in near perfect french (used the conditionnel). A true gent.
JPJ now gets to play with my mate Robyn Hitchcock from time to time.
He plays a mean mandolin!

This show was an incredible one. The band was amazing and I'm glad I was there for one of their very few concerts in France. Thanks guys for making this gigantic performance and for your overall contribution to MUSIC.
I still have heavy images in memory.
The funniest thing is that there were 2 categories of people in the place. The first category was made of all the officials, and student parents all wearing tuxedo, suits, long dresses and fancy clothes, the other part was a bunch of young hippies/beatnick dressed people. It was a surprising combination. I'm not sure the organisation was expecting this gap but it worked fine even if we could feel some tension here and there.

Premier concert en France; des murs d'enceintes impressionnants; une énergie fabuleuse...
