DEAD MAN'S SHADOW
Ships in 3-5 business days
DEAD MAN’S SHADOW were my favourite of the early 80’s punk bands. Alongside their fine Stanwell compatriots Action Pact, here was a band that also had character and melodic adventure whirling through their musical veins, at a time when such notions were in short supply. Here we have some excellent memories, starting with the first foray into studio activity, as a five piece, then whittling themselves quickly down to their better known trio status. Many photos taken in and around the Happy Landing pub, including those used for the sleeves of ‘Heathrow Touchdown’, ‘Bomb Scare’ and ‘Toleration Street’, as well as gigs. Other gig shots come from the Iberico, Chelmsford Y Club, Stanwell ‘Genesis’ Youth Club, the Marquee, a couple of great posed sessions for ZigZag magazine, and a few shots relating post-DMS Mancubs activity. 321 photos in all.
