Ha. I love this site. Don't think it was the first time I saw The Brigade as I remember quite liking them already. Wonder what happened to the girl singer? I loved her from 8 yards for quite a while but am glad to report that I didn't develop into a stalker (the pristine copy of Product of Evolution is enough to satisfy me when I think of her these days...)
I also bumped into the drummer in the 90's - he was servicing the roller-shutter at my workplace. Nice lad.
Thanks for the comment. The girl singer was Sue. She now lives with her family in Florida, USA.
I was the drummer, but it wasn't me you bumped into in the 90s – That would have been Gary Crane (the lead guitarist), he owned his own security windows and shutter business,, based in Manchester.
Visit my soundcloud page to listen to a few Brigade tracks here... they might bring back a few memories: soundcloud.com/ph...
COMMENT ADDED 21st January 2014
I don't know how on earth I came to chat with Gary about music as I didn't recognise him, it was just one of those happy coincidences. I've bookmarked that link and played a few of tracks already - they still sound good. Gone but certainly not forgotten!
