“I wish I'd got one of these. What happens if you call the number - it'd be good to talk to Harry if he's still on the other end of the line? I used to buy large (medium) Gibson picks from him in the late '70s but then I got tight and started using me fingers. I've got an old Yammy acoustic from Pass's too - no strings, plenty of dust and an action beyond the pale (err...hence no strings).”

“I couldn't agree more with Arnie - I played the Lancashire Vaults with JSRSRB - brilliant crowd but a riot broke as 'Perry's' (I think - forgive me if not) entered on a 'revenge' attack. The place was completely trashed - ambulances, police, several serious injuries and many arrests (of the wrong people - loyal punters who were clearing up the mess - Colin, our singer, appeared as a defence witness but had little impact on the outcome of the trial) One of the few times JSRSRB made the newspapers!”
“Hi Mat - thanks! Pandora's box!”
“Hi Dave, great to hear from you. Oh yes! I remember the Boundary well (the pub felt like it had been pencil-sharpened and one end...the bit we played in) I remember your rendition of Rob Roy (I can still sing the chorus - brilliant!) and remember that you went down better than we did (deservedly). I also remember that Col (our singer) wore a particularly tight pair of oyster coloured velvet kecks at one Boundary gig. Such was the rear view that as Col stood at a one armed bandit, an ostensibly hetero punter remarked to his mate that he had become somewhat aroused. No doubt our punter's excitement evaporated when Col turned to reveal his gender! I'm not sure this is a suitable space for swapping gig, on to other matters, I've been in contact with Arnie ('great to hear from him!) and he's filled me in on developments. I'm trying to get hold of your demo if possible. I'll trade for crap old JSRSRB recordings (rendered in sparkly digital format)! I wish I'd known of the F104 reunion - I'd have been there!”
“I think it's all coming back to me - your singer was Dave (?), he penned the anthem 'Rob Roy'...or maybe I'm losing it. I saw F104 many times around Manchester (notably Ashton and Denton). Thanks for the namecheck - I played bass for JSRSRB (with Colin, Steve and Baz...all sounds a bit Spinal Tap!)”
“Ahhh...I'm going all misty-eyed. I gigged here with JSRSRB (Joe Stalin's Red Star Radio Band) on many occassions - if fact, we had a short-lived residency. I also saw some great performances from yourselves and many of the other bands named above. What was the name of your singer - lovely bloke...and 'Rob Roy' (an anthem!)”
“Hi Arnie, good to see this again. I remember little about the gig other than the bass player from Angelwitch was gigantic! He needed to test the (hastily assembled) stage for strength prior to his performance. I played bass for JSRSRB at this (and somewhere down the back of a drawer, there's a poor recording of our version of Vodoo Chile from one of the Denton can I upload tunes?)!”
