Old flyer for gigs at the Cypress Tavern in March 1981 - it was clearly a photocopy and time (38 years) have caused it to fade! I was at the Freudian Slip/Dr Filth gig and saw Crispy Ambulance at the same venue on the 8th
I don’t think that is a photocopy, it looks like it was done on a ditto “machine”. They used them in the the pre photocopier days at schools they were done on a large machine with print rollers and they smelled of a weird chemical and the prints had a blue purple tinge. Am I showing my age?
Abdom - I remember using something similar at school where I wrote on a piece of paper with a carbon sheet underneath which was facing the back of the paper so left an imprint of what I'd written on the back. This was then used on a roller to make half a dozen copies
I cant remember how the flyers were produced, but its good to see a few have survived. I used to see the guitarist (Dave)? from Dr Filth on the TV, he must have become an expert at something. Don (Dr Filth vox) was a familiar figure round Burton Rd, always told me he worked in Withington mortuary, maybe just winding me up.
