Great Photo Jax I visited Wendy in Cork a few years back she still looks exactly the same,must be the water.
I look about 30 years older which is probably down to the cider!
Keep the photo's coming

Saw Fischer Z at the Russell Club must have been the gig in the poster. Also saw the Dickies there. However, I don't remember the two bands playing on the same night. - Could be wrong though a full gig with the Dickies playing all their material only lasted about half an hour lol.
Anyway going to see Fisher Z at the Factory on Saturday (11th Sept 2021) lets see what's changed !!
