Artefact

Manchester's Syncopation get a major TV break on Channel 4's The Tube when part of a gig at The Gallery was broadcast nationally. Major label interest was to follow but the band split before they released anymore recordings.

Thanks for that,not seen it for over twenty years.I was the drummer.We formed another band after that called Scarlet Town and added another guitarist.we all thought the music was good and had interest,but the music business was harsher in those days( i think).

You have a good memory ,we were always on that table,probably should have concentrated on the music a bit more.I stopped playing for about fifteen years but started again last year.Check out Randolph swain and the red lights and see what you think.,bit quirky though.What was your band called?

That would be great...but I don't get to MCR much these days...I live in Austin, TX...been here for 17 years now! Remember those days very well though...John Barrett, Facsimile Liasons, the record peddler, the mystery gig at the Gaetano, that crappy rehearsal room we shared with you guys next to Broughton baths...great days for sure!
