Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, Tim Burgess, Warsaw, The Electric Crayons

‘Terror Visions’ article from Vox magazine [December 1996]. A kind of ‘the way they were’ type of affair featuring a number of acts before they were famous.

From top to bottom:

A young and dodgy moustachioed Bernard Sumner in Warsaw (later renamed Joy Division)

Happy Mondays. I never knew ‘Champagne’ Charlie Nicholas was an early member...

The Stone Roses. Circa 1985. Ian Brown sporting John Squire's latest exhibition, “Gestapo in paisley”.

The Electric Crayons. Tim Burgess as what can only be described as Alvin Stardust's love child. Good job he left and The Charlatans were after a singer.

All the photos are credited to Kevin Cummins.

“Hilarious! Gestapo in Paisley - sounds like a New Romantic band. Like 'Dresden Ludo'. Remember them?”
“There should be a Manc Spandau Ballet tribute act called Strangeways Clogdance. (Or maybe not!)”
