ARTHUR KAY…It was 50 years ago arthur-kayYesterday on October 3rd 1966 that I became a member of the next collection that became a top south London band.Starting off playing the youth clubs in The Streatham Brixton and Clapham area we soon built a massive following.sadly Kieron o Connor THE BEST drummer I ever worked with and guitarist Bob gibbons are sadly no longer with us.

50 years on and after all the knock backs and the usual record company and publishing rip offs I am still out there juggling. I have just finished an exceptional reggae/ska album with top German band Ska Band TheClerks. Like it or not; I ain’t going away.coyl.

The Skinhead Reunion An ode to be in England, Sat beside the sea, With friends the world over, Enjoying everyone’s company. A Brighton blast, that went fast, This years reunion is in our past, Beer was drunk in excess, We scoffed our faces full, The bands & dj’s played their sounds, 3 days of living it up, ’twas never dull. Oh how we laughed & jumped about, Sharing stories as a SKINHEAD lout,

The sun was shining, the mood was great, We stared at the stars, Until it got very late, The friends we made, The ones we’ve not seen in years Laughing, living & chatting, Over quite a few beers We opened our eyes, To the greatest cult alive Comrades in arms, all under one roof, Skinheads together, the reunion is proof, Happy & jolly like kids with a new toy, The young & the old ones, All jumping for joy. Another reunion as passed We leave with our sad faces, On trains, buses, planes & cars, All going home to our places, But do not fear, this time next year, They have organised another Make your plans, shine your boots So we can stand side by side like sister & brother Amen Oi Oi

For those on a low budget, its worth checking Hostels and campsites, but my advice, is to get in the reserved hotels, for a nice stress free, clean and comfortable holiday in Brighton.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

Brighton is situated on the south coast of England, approximately one hour from London. London Gatwick is the nearest airport. There are regular direct trains and National Express buses. The next nearest is Heathrow,  There are also direct trains from Luton Airport . Its advised not to fly to Stansted, as this is a long way, and you risk losing valuable drinking time

The nearest ferry port serving mainland Europe is Newhaven -Dieppe . Newhaven is about 20 min drive to Brighton. Dover is about 2 hours to Brighton

PARKING ZONES – one of the worst aspects of Brighton, is a lack of affordable parking. my advice is to use street parking on the suburbs of Brighton, its a reasonably safe place. a good bus service will take you into brighton centre (churchill square) and a short walk from there to the sea front. worth allowing the extra hours work, to save yourself serious parking charges
