Hi again. Not sure where you got your info about Black Sabbath playing at the 'Art College' - The only 'Art College' I can recall, at the time, was in Canterbury ( we played there sometime in '74), not Folkestone...?
Also, according to the Black Sabbath website: SABBATH ONLINE, which lists Sabbath 'archive' gigs: http://www.black-sabbath.com/tourdates/1970.html - from 1968 - 1971, only Tofts in Folkestone is listed in April 1971. The only other gig nearest is in Lewes, Sussex.... But perhaps others know more? - Steve
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a frenzy of excitement when I first moved here sometime in '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
