    No Sydney opera house either !. As a boy saw the kinks there in 64 whilst on holiday, they were under carding Peter Jay and the Jaywalkers believe it or not. Anyone remember them ? NO

    The Kinks played Sydney Opera House in 1964?

    Loved Mungo Jerry in my younger years, always feel-good music. Had a few of their singles - Long Legged Woman Dressed in Black, Lady Rose, All Right, In The Summertime. I should look out for a Best Of.

    I went to Torquay once must have been about 1993. All I remember is there are palm trees and lots of roundabouts.

    It was out of season so the Hanging Gardens of Babylon was closed.

    Sounds just like Chorley, apart from the palm trees and the Hanging Gardens. Some of the women are hanging though.

    Went to Torquay about 3 years ago. The area around the front and harbour have obviously had a laaaaarge injection of cash and is a nice area to walk around. However when you venture into the town and around the back streets it is a very different story, a bit like Battersea in the early 70's where I was brunged up.
