i always meant to save these flyers at the time but never did-somehow i knew that one day i would want theem again! i know someone who has a copy of everyone from about 1987, i should ask him for scans. did you go to the int. a lot?
The 21st May gig wasn't a great payer but we got loads of people in on the guest list! Met Wilko and Norman Watt Roy again a couple of years ago when my current band - The CasualTies - supported them at The Bar Cuba in Macclesfield, details and pics to follow......
First met Craig when my band the Moochers were rehearsing to play at a converted cinema the Carlton in Salford. Craig was related to one of the guys who had bought the old cinema and was having his own rehearsal session. My God! was he awesome. He sounded better than the four of us put together. I knew he would go further than playing in an old picture house and he was soon signed up by Jeff Travis at Rough Trade where he went on to produce a brilliant first album that got the critics raving but barely chalked up any sales as a solo folkie/songwriter wasnt on the menu back then for the bright young things! Shame, really as Craig was truly talented and a lovelier bloke you couldn`t wish to meet..........modest and a genius!
