Chris Hill origionally from Salford breifly stepped in to play guitar just after Jonny Marr left the band. Wanda was managing the band at that point. Chris now lives in Newcastle and fronts Glam rock band the Sleeze Sisters www.sleezesisters...

I was guitarist with Sister Ray, i remember this gig well cos my guitar had a fault and some kind person soldered a loose wire that had come loose inside the guitar. I had more bad luck when we went on stage cos my distortion pedal had been knicked! None the less it was a good gig. Nice bunch those fast cars! Thats me peeping over second from the right.

That would have been Chris Smith who fixed your guitar Alf, he was our Sound Engineer and also worked for Gordon~Smith Guitars. We played with you guys a few times and always enjoyed it!!! Great memories from those times.
