The Negatives

Picture of the band taken in the listening booths at the old Virgin Records.
They are Back row L-R Kevin Cummins (drums), Richard Boon (sax), Merlin (guitar), Paul Morley (voice). Front row L-R Stephanie, Carol, Jodi (backing vocals).
Stephanie was drummer and Jodi bassist in Manicured Noise (I fancied Jodi like mad!).
Carol shared a house with Pete Shelley when he lived in Gorton, I heard she later also worked behind the bar at the Hacienda.

“Met Carol when we stayed overnight in Pete's house in Gorton. I remember there were no tiles only bare earth in the kitchen. Funny what you remember. Pete played me the pre- vinyl recording of Late for the train.”

“'Deed! I lived in that house in Gorton, when most of the area was crofts. Just the Mayflower, Belle Vue and the little market/precinct the only things above ground for miles.”
