I kinda mod -ska infusion they were, where did u come from at that time where did u live ? Did u ever see Le Matt ???



Northstand - About Le Mat - yeah, top band -I'm from Leigh-on-sea and me and a lot of the younger Southend boys used to follow Le Mat in the early 80's.
Dunno if you saw them at the Queens Hotel in Westcliff supported by Doctor and the Medics - now that was a gig !!
Ironic that Doctor and the Medics went on to get a no.1 and Le Mat vanished - they were always viewed as the jokey support slot !
I did have their one and only album but lost it years back - would love to get a copy on CD.

Also -Barons - remember that too - thing is I was a touch too young to get in back then - remember the car-park being absolutely full of scoots though.



My mate( though not for a fair few years) was the drummer from Le Matt, I knew a few of the Southends Mods at that [sign in to see URL] Days Southend had a really good scene.



Yeah Southend had loads going on back then - although most left mod behind (not me) and got into army greens, we still had some great Soul/Northern Soul do's. Chad and Del used to spin some good sounds.
Who did u know from the Southend crowd ?

D i c k Coombes, fcuking hell! Respect!
I remember Baron's very well. I reckon the really cool bloke described earlier would be Charlie Neale. Top lad.

There's a few other Southend type threads on here and Roger is the resident Southend expert as he used to run Speedball. Le Mat...? Nice pyjama's.... emoticon
