  1. Hi!. Thanks for the blog. I’ve been digging around for info, but i think i’m getting lost!. Yahoo lead me here – good for you i suppose! Keep up the good work. I will be popping back over in a couple of days to see if there is any more info.

  2. I can add two gigs; One with Kevin, me and John Halvorsen supporting the Gordons at Victoria Uni (1982-3)
    One with Kevin, me, possibly Chris Plummer as the Wereducks at a daytime all-ages concert with hip-hop (or as they were then known, “break”) dancers circa 1983-4.
    real dates may vary wildly from those given. Most material so far as I recall was mine or covers from the Amps, Elvis, Pink Floyd and so on.
