Artefact

The cover to the band's only 7"... 'Ain't Been To No Music School'. The sigle was released on Tosh Ryan (full name Anthony Ryan-Carter) and Lawrence Beedle's Rabid Records (hence the catalogue number TOSH 102). The single sold well but the band didn't become successful. Vini Reilly was The Nosebleeds guitarist, later of Durutti Column (that's him in the stripey blazer). The sleeve photo was taken by Kevin Cummins who says...

"I don't remember anything significant about it really.
It was at the school that Vinnie Riley and 'Ed Banger' went to.
I remember them getting their old teacher to ham it up a bit by
pretending to hit one of them with a blackboard ruler (approx. 3 foot long)."

The School was St. Pauls RC, Firbank Rd, Wythenshawe, also attended by Slaughter and the Dogs; Wayne Barrett and Mike Rossi, (and me) the jacket Vini's wearing is part of the girls school uniform, young rascal
