I have been on that site before,and it does not allow anyone to copy the photos. I bumped into an old punk who used to go to all the gigs i went to back then, in and around manchester.Got chatting about the scene then and it turned out he stayed at your house once ian.he was origanally ftrom scotland but lived in manchester at the time,now lives in bristol down the road from me,Laco is his nickname,ian mcleod is his real name,going out for a beer with him again in a couple of weeks.

I have the EP on cdr I copied it from original tape from owner of XRecords "Steve" in Bolton in the 90s...I know of only 3 that exist. I also have a cdr album which you can buy off Discogs.

Hi Ian I used to travel from Oldham to buy bootlegs off you in Bury ....Notably the Pistols Belsen single. Well worth the bus journey. Also I was at the gig with the Damned when afterwards instead of going on the last few dates of the tour with the damned following DV and RS offering us to come, me and my mate decided to go and smash up UMIST with you and the boys. How many windows must have died that night! You were a great band.
