Artefact

Arnie found a place that made cheap short runs of badges so we made loads to give out at gigs to commemorate the night. Some sad people have been known to still wear them occasionally and there are probably about 20 in the full set of different editions. These two are showing signs of rust. The Zans were the later line-up of Zanathus, They re-emerged via Akoustik Anarky nights a couple of years back and released some stuff, they gig sporadically still and are probably the Elder Statesmen of Stockport Punk and 992 shared their drummer,Ronnie Land for a while. Select Committee were fronted by Pete Gallagher who is an awesome guitar player (he joined 992 later also)

Ron Says –
Hello Sbilts & Splash- Question whatever happened to the Huge Batman Superhero cutout that used to guest at some dodgy gig now and then?
sbilts Says –
Dunno..is that you Mr Land? if so do you still have the policemans hat inscribed with the profanity on the front that you used to wear during "Boys in Blue"?
Ron Says –
