More > press naturally began to favour the development of Indie they wouldn’t have been seen as ‘cool’ enough, which was a great shame as they were a really good band. We find 50 live photos here of them performing at the Clapham 101 Club 1980, where some are a bit rough but I felt it right to include everything, 30 live photos from the Moonlight in West Hampstead 1981, as well as more 27 informal shots at a band rehearsal.< Less
