We supported The Claim a couple of times..as a band and as supporters...if that makes sense? Always fondly remembered by me for the tremendously titled album "This Pencil Was Obviously Sharpened By A Left-Handed Indian Knife-Thrower" Exquisite. Some of The Claim are still around...treading the beer-stained boards of Medway's Inns. Dave Arnold and Dave Read, in fact, made a sterling appearance together at the Medway Eyes 1967 night at The Barge, Gillingham, in January 2009.
Who remembers Dymaxion? Quite unusual for a Medway band, I feel, these little Numanoids. I have absolutely no idea what happened to them...or if any of the band members graced any other local band (before or after)but I thought I'd give them a showing. So...guys...if you are out there...somewhere....make yourselves known...even if you live on a rocketship these days. Scrub that...ESPECIALLY if you live on a rocketship.
