Lovely photo of Manchester poster designer and DJ 'OK Dave' with Tosh Ryan (Rabid Records) on Alexandra Road, Moss Side, just before it was all bulldozed.

OK Dave says: "I'm on my way to a weekly Tuesday night DJ residency in the Solem Bar at Manchester University Students' Union. My LPs and 45s are in the suitcase in the bike basket!"

(Note poster for Bob Marley and The Wailers at The Hardrock Concert Theatre in the background. Also, a Carnival '75 poster on boarded up shop and a poster which says 'YPOA - Manchester's Home Grown Funk EXPLOSION at Houldsworth Hall, Friday 4th May'.)

The fact that Tosh is holding a brush suggests he may be doing some fly-posting.
