Blimey!!! This brought back a few happy (hazy) memories!! I used to go and see DRN down The Richmond in Brighton, back in the early/mid 80s and always had a rockin' time!! Any chance of the band coming back to Brighton? Concorde 2 have got Space Ritual soon, so why not DRN?? Glad to see you're still going strong... Carmen xxx

Dumps me old mate... I've seen you a few times over the years, but the best 2 gigs were at Reading in '86 when you had you own set, and then joined Lemmy & Hawkiwind during Hawkwinds encore... what a weekend!!! The other time was at the "Fleece and Firkin" here in Bristol. It's pub that usually holds 60 lunch time drinkers, but get a gig going in the evening and the rafters are heaving.... and that's nothing to do with the 200 fans chanting the usual greating! Keep it up (ooer)

Wotcha Dumpy - Greetings from Northampton ! Havent heard of you since I saw you the last time you played Milton Keynes (still a shit hole , by the way)...I remember great times with my mates seeing you at the TT several times - I even remember meeting you in a Petrol station near Ballagh Bridge on Mad Sunday on that old British Iron of yours ; I think that was the year when you supported Motorhead (82?)

Last saw you play late 1985 at the Marquee and you were in the audience at Venom's Hammersmith Odeon gig I used to be a regular at Stairways in Birkenhead. When you went to the bar during Wee Wee Baby, I was one of the pissheads who got on stage and shouted the chorus (every time!). Caught you live there every time between 83 and 85. Now I'm determined to catch a show again.

Hi Guys, Many years ago I did your lighting at Glasgow's Rooftops nightclub (what a night!). I guess it was the late eighties 87 - 88 the roof leaked rainwater onto the stage and Dumpy split his jeans and did a temp repair job with Gaffa tape. A few months later we breifly met on the road at some laybye in some picturesque part of scotland I was on tour with "THE CLANN" and you guys were on yer way south to a gig in central scotland somewhere. We were all dressed up in kilts with swords and stuff.

I’m jolly glad to see that you chaps are still going. I’m also a Marquee veteran. The first time that I saw you was at Stone Hedge Festival in 1984. I remember having a chat with Dumpy in the `Ship` on Wardour Street, when the Marquee was next door. I live in Budapest now, but I’m going to try to catch a gig on one of my trips home. Keep up the good work chaps. Are you still making jokes about Japanese bikes? Regards, Sebastian.

1984, Rockhouse, Derby (oh and supporting Venom at Hammy Odeon!). Wish I'd had some film in my camera, but I couldn't work the bloody thing anyway! Still, although you were pretty cool about it all and really didn't believe I worked for Kerrang, I still had one of the best nights of my life! Wish I'd found this place sooner...

I got the CD! but was really impressed with a number you did, I think it was "SOS" very Hawkwindy, will you be releasing it, maybe sometime? All the best and Keep on rocking Renbo and Dia

Holy shit, Man, was I knocked off my ass when I found that you're still goin'. Damn happy about that too! I got "Somewhere in England" when it first came out and played the shit out of it. Still one of my ALL time favorite albums. I still got my DRN and Dumpy's bum flasher t-shirts. Still get a great kick out of people asking me who the hell is DRN when I wear it to concerts. See,I'm from the states-arizona that is,and most here don't know fuck all about anything which has got heart and soul. I sure hope that you will be putting out some new albums,or getting some suit to reissue the old albums.Anyway,next time I go to the UK it's nice to know that I can check the website for any shows. Maybe I'll be able to catch one of your gigs.
Very best wishes to ya-cheers! Scott
ps-I still got that NUT club card in my wallet!

On Saturday my eldest boy was in the carnival at Dorking on passing a sign for Box Hill my wife and I spontaniously broke into a rendition of BHOB to the utter bemusement of the kids!!!

Hi, I've just seen a message from Jason Tippet about Mick Kirton. Mick & I played together in bands for YEARS and YEARS. Just before he left the Reading area I took him to a couple of meetings/rehearsals with Tony MPhee then we totally lost touch. Bob Moody (Bass) is also constantly asking where Mick went. For a while we thought he was in Birmingham then he appeared at a gig in Sunderland and went again. Please, if anyone knows where he is - ask him to contact me. Thanks Alan P.S. Tell him
