“Hello Luke,
You can use them in your documentary but please credit the photographer (myself) in your work and that would be great.
You can also send me a link to your finished effort.

“I saw Nico a few months earlier at the same venue. Only went to hear 'All Tomorrows Parties'. Support on that occasion was Stockholm Monsters.

“I started going to the poly for the disco (not actually disco) night in mid '79 when I was 16 and never had a problem getting in. When a new police chief took over, Anderton, there was a crackdown on under aged people in clubs.
I turned 18 and going in there one night they asked for ID and age, I didn't have anything on me but I said 'You know me, I've been coming here for years' it didn't wash though. The security guy picked me up (I didn't weight that much) and threw me out onto the street. Very humiliating.”
