Artefact

The Moochers
Photograph
1985
A typical 80`s self styled promo shot taken by the bassists then girlfriend out on the "lannie" (the landslide) near the Cliff in Salford.

We couldn`t afford professional photographers back in the day but I thought Janet did a fair job considering what she had to work with!

Our biggest claim to fame came when Mick Middles put the A and B sides of our self financed single recorded at Twilight Studio`s on Silk Street "Same Old Story" and "Heaven in You" in his Buzz Chart with a very favourable review (thanks Mick) which had us in such esteemed company as Happy Mondays, Simply Red and Inspiral Carpets for a few brief weeks.

A very young Joe Salmon on the drums, now thrashing the skins with the mighty, Inflictors, a cracking Salford band.
