The ColU win really completed a fine day, after first visiting Canvey Island to search out some key Feelgood locations, along with fellow Feelgood fan @A_Worboys.
We only had time to search out the jetty on the ‘Down by the Jetty’ album cover (near the Lobster Smack pub), the Labworth Café, the striking 1930s building built to resemble the bridge of the Queen Mary, and finally to lunch at the Oysterfleet Hotel, which has a Blue Plaque commemorating the band’s late lamented singer Lee Brilleaux. I tweeted three photos at
Next time we play Southend on a Saturday we might have to search out other important places. Perhaps we can organise a Chairboys tour with fellow fans! Chris Fenwick, still the band’s manager after over 40 years, leads an annual walking tour of the island. I really like Canvey, it’s a very down to earth and unpretentious place, and I’ve always liked the smells and sights of the creeks around estuaries.
It got me thinking, are there any other music trails we can follow on our away trips?
