Loads of good music around at that time,, good bands such as "O.M.D" "Lotus eaters" and "China Crisis" also liked local bands "The Farm" and "Up and Running"...
Good music never dates, still so many talented musicians around today!!

We raided Hesseys in town one day for gear, and I took me dads work van over the country when we did gigs. Never realised why we stank of paint and wood filler on stage.
Active throughout 80s. Firehouse gigs (Idris,Bob) pubs & clubs all over merseyside. Recorded at Amazon, (Prod. Mark Phythian) Kirkby. Rehearsed at rat infested Vulcan St Studio.
Played with Tony Griffiths (early Real People) , John Murphy (w/ JMurphy for John Lennon memorial - steps of St. Georges Hall, Lime St), and in various other permutations/bands. Spud Murphy had the first fretless bass in Seaforth. Been listening to Paco.
Good times in a fun city. Me, still playing professionally in US. NYC, Charlotte, Richmond, East coast + me banjo. Miss the scran, the footie - Blue Nose (Main Stand) with me dad and a ‘75 ticket holder Kopite (with me mates). Miss our scouse humour and the lager beer in Liverpool.
