THE FORESTERS INTERVIEW

The Foresters recorded for Joe Meek at 304 Holloway Road and their recordings are in the tea chest tapes. The interview with Radio Gloucestershire’s Pete Wilson in October 2003 is fascinating because the group are from Joe Meek’s neck of the woods and they give a fascinating account of their time at 304 and playing at various venues. Sadly one of the group Derek Cooke has died since the interview was recorded.
