Brighton R**ks

Here's another great shot of the Lemon Boys this time in their wonderful rehearsal bunker. I realise I omitted a credit for these images from my last post. The photographer is one Richard D Jones who I believe was living in Bloomsbury Place with the 'Boys at the time. I'd shared some accomodation with 'boyo when living in West Wales and he'd played drums very occassionally in early incarnations of the AirTight Garage there. But then we'd all played drums in the 'garage at one time or another. Enthusiastic and almost completely without finesse he did however make sure we got our daily doses of Devo, The Residents, Pere Ubu and the like. He gave me the negs in '81 for what reason I cannot recall. I'm out of touch with him at the mo' and seeing as I've looked after them for 28 years I guess its ok for me to post them here. Alternatively given my terrible memory the above may in fact be bollocks!

I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques.

Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

    Yes I did read it but decency prevailed; still no harm now seeing as the ‘cat is out of the bag’… More info on Dan appreciated as it would be nice to let him know he’s in the news as it were…

    On another topic, have you mastered the art of RSS feeds yet m’ darlin’? It would help if I didnt have to tell people I’m posting.
