The Band Marquis De Sade out side our fave record shop in Stockport B&G Records on under bank. Our band Blackout had a practise room under B&G that was so damp my drums warped.

I know most of the people in this photo. I can make out Drac's Daughter, Leafy, Sid Septic, Dave Ellis and Locky. Anybody recognise any of the others?

The above photo is of Stockport's original punks outside B&G Records in Underbank, opposite the Joke shop sometime in 1978. Pictured left to right are; Drac,s Daughter, Leify, Dave Jones, Macca, Sid Septic (Glynn), Dave Ellis, Brian, Dotty Epidermis (Keith) and John Lock (Locky). Other people probably present but not pictured might also have included Chris Gleaves (Eve Slag), Les Osmosis (Vic), Spenner, Alan Jones (Dave's brother), Andy, Caron, Eddie, Jim, Dave, Nick Cullen and Picker.

Dave Ellis and Leafy with Andy would form Stockport's first punk band The Evicted (a full two years before Dave and Andy formed the more glam-inspired Marquis De Sade). Locky would become Stockport's first skinhead and form Security Force, Manchester's first 'Skin' band.

The guy with his hands in the air, 6th from the left is Bobby (Marchant) drummer of Alien Tint. Seeing a picture of Leafy is scary, even now, he used to hang around in the loos at gigs and demand £5 notes off young punks (V2 at Stockport Tech being an example). My mate told me that Locky is now a "Professor" somewhere at a University. Di Barlow, one time singer with Alien Tint works in the office at Hazel Grove Railway Station - a lovely lady
