Artefact

A community recording studio set up near where The Chequered Flag is / was, in Hulme. A lot of the work/ labour was voluntary, and as I knew some of the lads I helped out . Was sorry to hear about Steve McGee who was the main instigator; top man!
Actually when it was officially opened by some lord mayor type, I got there a bit late and as I rushed through the door there was Steve engaged in deep conversation with said mayor with a film crew from Granada recording the meeting of two such great minds. Well immediately, before I knew it, Steve grabbed me and said “have you met the lord mayor...?” and promptly did one, leaving me speechless with this primped up, pompous bling king shaking my hand and beaming at me for all of Granada Land to see, as I was later informed. Well as me and lord mayor types don’t generally get on I went looking for that rascal giving it “what the f*#k you leave me with that beepin’ beep for...”; well so he could get away of course....Well I could just about see his point.
Mr. Wilson was at that one and with hindsite he did a lot of good things, even on the smaller scale so fair play......
Fallover 24 were a pretty good band; still got that "Pessimistic Man" 12" somewhere; think there'd been another band St. Vitus Dance (?) who'd morphed into the former....can't quite remember...

I did some work experience at Fallover in 1991, courtesy of the job centre in Levenshulme. Great bunch of people. They had A Guy Called Geralds old sampler and Atari.
