Another photo of 'The Captain' drummer from 'The Knives', many punters thought the name had violent conotations but they were completely wrong, the name was actually short for Hot Knives which was how they smoked their errr..
'tobacco' by squashing it between two knives that had been heated up till red over a gas ring!! no violence after that folk's you were lucky to stand up straight!!

Was Phil Kirby (Yargo, Biting Tongues, the French) in the Knives for a bit as the drummer?
Pretty sure Tom Barnish (Trombone-Biting Tongues)
was in them , saw them at the Lamplight in Chorlton.

I remember seeing a band called The Knives at Kelly's on Amber Street in the autumn of 1978. Hot band.
