then I've planted more into their own little corner plots including
Johnny Kidd & The Pirates
- simply because no-one else had done it!
I also had the pleasure of looking after The Pirates (Johnny Spence,
Mick Green and Frank Farley) for a while, for their then manager
Bernard Futter. Once Ray "Big Bloke" Gomm took the reigns,
he completely expanded it, including Johnny Spense's dalliances
with "Doctor's Orders". Many thanks for all his hard work,
I am proud to host here.
somehow found the time to add Shane Fenton and the Fentones -
one of those forgotten bands who pre-dated the British Beat
Boom, paving the way for the tide of bands that covered the
country in the m id 1960''s.
My goodness - that venerable "Home on the Web" hosting service goes back a long, long way in terms of Web history, before Yahoo was big enough to take it over. When I started out they offered free website space totalling a grand 2Mb filespace - Wow! There were times when I got dangerously close to filling it too, only 1mb short. Crikey. Sometimes I nearly had enough time to browse through it all before the tiddly copper cable fell over, first at 33kbs, later 56kbs. We'd never had it so good. That the WWW was growing co-coincided with cheaper storage and servers, so when the website allowance magnified over time to 25Mb, I was so grateful to Yahoo! I saturated the West End Cricket Club site with more pages, photos and even a few small videos of the fun we had. A couple of seasons later I was gasping for more.
So what's next? I might add some of my boring photo collection, or add other ideas rambling through my disorganised brain (ooh Matron, it hurts) as a bit of fun, experimentation, or purely for the hell of it. It's my plot and if you don't like it I'll take the ball home with me. Anyway, in the meantime, click on one of the links to view one of the copious sites I rescued from oblivion which current versions now reside here. Drop me a line if you're really that bored, that is...!
