“Mossbrook Social Club in Moston anyone? - a right laugh that one, an all-night drinking club full of 1 toothed pikies. Made Pinkies and Cobdens look like Stringfellows.”

“It was Steve Garside and I remember us travelling down the motorway to a gig and him following in his 'ultra-cool' yellow triumph stagg. We thought it would be a top laugh to throw a beer filled crisp packet at his windscreen at 60mph...and it was, he nearly totalled his car, and gave us a right mouthful, how we laughed.
By the way, the signing of the contracts in the picture was at the Band on the Wall in Manchester.
Where is Medhurst these days anyway?”

“Hi Jax, we used play Lowrys regularly, including the 60s nights. Lowrys was a fun venue and we always played to a good crowd there.”

“The images - recorded our first demo here in 1979 also.
I was 15 at the time and our manager took us in the pub around the corner (can't remember the name) for a pint before we started and explained how the whole process was going to work. I remember being really nervous as we'd never been in a studio before.

Just for the record, and for anyone who might be interested, we recorded 3 songs - In this world, Oh baby and Que Sera.”
