Artefact

Here's a flyer from what could be First Circle's first headline gig, after a few test gigs at pubs in Didsbury and Stockport and positive reviews in City Fun and The NME

In this flyer First Circle are from left to right; Don Durham, Mark Coley, Alec Sidebottom, Paul Rosenfeld, Mike Finney and Julie Middles.

The picture was taken from a photo shoot for the NME by Kevin Cummins in the grounds of a now abandoned church on Wellington Rd North between Stockport and Heaton Moor

Mike Finney had come from The Distractions and both he and Julie had subsequently been with The Secret Seven

Don, Mark, Alec and Paul were formerly with Dr Filth who were at this time in abeyance.
Paul would be replaced a year later by Neil Roberts ex Radioactive Shoulderblades and Naked in Winter
