One of the organisers of Club Sandino's was Gwil Stevenson, manager of Dislocation Dance. These posters were hand screen printed by Gwil in his cellar.

When Yargo kicked off their set with 'Missing you', a slow, heartfelt cry of lost love, I was struck by just how un-Manchester they were. Listening to a tape of the show twenty years on, the sheer confidence of the band shines through. However, many numbers from that night never made it into the studio and onto vinyl. So surely the time is right for someone to delve into the vaults and pull out the demos and out-takes for a long-overdue Yargo retrospective?

“i agree. they were an amazing live band.”
“Nice image. Very Banksy-esque!”
“Paddy Steer - Yargo fez wearing bassist is still playing plenty of good music - he was drumming for John Stammers last week at The Castle...well to say he was drumming is an understatement - he plays drums, lap steel guitar and bass pedals sometimes all at the same time - plus he does his own DIY synth music ( he builds all his own modulators or what ever you call them ) plays regularly with 808 State on live dates...list goes on”
