“Getting hold of 'straight leg' jeans in '76 in Manchester was almost impossible until some enterprising stall holder in the underground market got some in. I think I must have been amongst his first customers. Early punks before that had been known to wrap gaffer tape around the bottom of their flares to achieve that straight leg look. Great Pic though.”

“This date was a gig with Chelsea and I'm sure I was there! I thought there were a lot more people than this at the gig though. I think the guy in the blue anorak type top is me old mate Jon the Postman and the guy next to him in the "loons" (believe me they are NOT loons - not near flared enough) is another old pal, John Cassels. Looks suspiciously like Mr Cummins at stage left clicking!”
