Live: Davie Jones and the Lower Third, Starlight Rooms, Brighton

Davie Jones and the Lower Third performed at the Starlight Rooms in Brighton, England, on Friday 11 June 1965.

The Starlight Rooms were part of the Montpelier Hotel on Montpelier Road, Brighton.

This was the first show the band played with new drummer Phil Lancaster. His predecessor Les Mighall had found that life on the road was not for him, and left after just a handful of gigs.

Lancaster had placed an advertisement offering his services in the Melody Maker, which was spotted by bass guitarist Graham Rivens. The new line-up performed together without a proper rehearsal.

Mighall joined another band, Spirits of Sound, based in Margate. He died in March 2008.
