The Risk (1985)
Based in Alderley / Wilmslow, The Risk played their own Soul / Rn'b tinged rock style and were regular giggers around Mcr. The band featured the vocals of Joe Roberts (pictured in the middle) who went on to have success as a solo artist and Jimi Goodwin (2nd left), now of Doves, on guitar. Jimi's musicianship was exceptional for his age (15 at the time I think?). I can't recall the drummer's name (far right) sorry; the other two members are guitarist Steve Green (far left) and 4th left is bassist Dermot Aherne. Picture was taken on a bitterly cold Sunday morning on Alderley Edge as part of a photo shoot for publicity stuff.
