“Wasn,t Mark one of the 3 drummers at the Beach Surgeon/Tongues Whitworth Fayre gig?...I met him a few years ago I think he was living in Holland somewhere and was home for a visit, he was a good mate of my wifes eldest brother...I recognised him from Ram Ram Kino. I remember a gig of theirs at Band on the Wall where someone was spray painting a giant cardboard figure onstage with them. It could have been support on one of the Tongues gigs there (I remember washing machines strewn about the stage and Broom handle antics and a sheet of metal being attacked with an engraver. Bits of polystyrene rubbed on glass to make high register squeaks--heaven (could have been a dream)”
“sounds right,yes i remember the action art too. yes he moved to Dutchville,and yes he was one of the 3 drummers.”
“Wasn't Kirk Podmore in Ram Ram Kino or am I thinking of something else?”

“Yes we did - Alan loved it at the time, done fairly faithfully too. Bit daft, but broke the monotony during some of the less well attended gigs...”
