More > 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.< Less

From 1982 there are gigs at the Chelmsford Y Club, the Iberico Centre, in a studio or two, and rehearsing. 162 black and white photos in all.< Less
