Over on Sex Pistols' Twitter page, there's a pic of myself and John J Campbell in rather fetching khaki shorts, atop "Coniston Old Man" peak; the photo was used on the poster for The Pistols' only Liverpool gig, at Eric's on 15th October 1976...we were the support band that night (Albert Dock, soon to mutate into Yachts).
Who was there?

#ArchiveSunday - The Christians on the very first Later with Jools Holland, August 1992, performing Ray Charles' Rockin' Chair Blues...Jools budged me out of my comfy piano stool for this song, and I was demoted to "keyboard 2nd in command", on menial single-finger synth/organ duty! 🙂
Mind you, he does a grand job, having possibly never heard it before.

Album cover for The Last mad Surge of Youth by Henry Priestman

“…compares favourably to Ray Davies. These are heart-warming self-assured songs from a man confidently declaring that he’s not done yet”

8/10

“Clever crafted songwriting…full of proper tunes & grown-up words…a clever, wily,  literate writer”

****

R2 Magazine

“A lovingly crafted album… his fourth act might be his best”

****

Classic Pop Magazine
