Is the drummer the same Les Brady who is now a football referee in Stockport? If so, then this pic' should be worth a bit of a giggle at the next Stockport RA meeting..... !

... and how (and where) is Stu Grimshaw??! I shared a house with him for a few months in 1979. I remember his previous band, Alien Tint, with their 'Capri Boys' signature tune and the lovely Diane on vocals. They should have been big!!
