Topic: Fabulous

Finally managed to track down the 2 records they released. What a class band, a right bunch of nutters.

I have been looking for some more info on them on the webb. The only thing I can find is on the Heavenley Records website. I never forgot an interview they did years ago on the telly (Snub TV)? They were saying the right stuff & they drove a multi coloured Maxi about. I always remember it for some funny reason roll I wonder what happened to that, aswell as the band?

Noone like that nowadays sad

Do you know them or something.

I remember the singer, looked a bit like Mick Jagger, who's ill. What does he do in Manchester, apart from walk the streets kicking stones.

I am down the road from Malvern, what pub. I fancy being regalled stories from the Rock n Roll frontline. Didn't that James Brown fella manage them (not the singer like)

I think the drummer is in the Ship or The Star  - the one just down from The Fowley Arms
you can find him at the winter gardens or whatever the theatre is called where he does the lights or something

Re: Fabulous

Halcyon days.

My mate Dave Newton co-incidentally said yesterday he was recording next weeks show for Little Radio in LA and he has dedicated 'Destined to be Free' for me after I sent him a picture of the pickled onions I have started making.  Complete co-incidence he hasn't a clue about OMJ he's a Punk 77 man.

No he was a Mighty Lemon Drop.
Go to the barfly tomorrow night and check out White Denim. They are my great. The bass plaer looks like McLovin from superbad.

DHM

I will get down there soon (when I can get away from the nippers mad)

Smoking crack in a tin. It must have been a big tin, if all of them were in it?

The T-shirts sound good yikes

Re: Fabulous

The T-shirts were done by the artist Paul Kinell  (RIP) who most famously did the Screamadelica sleeve. they were based on the flyers I printed out by john bulling gig details and sticking them with address stickers onto the back of cards. Total cottage industry and loads of effort usually just to end up with the sort of result the disappearing starfish described.

Re: Fabulous

apart from that though, you have to admit that was a near perfect account of a typical night out of town wasn't it?

Only the other day Dudfield sidled upto me at work and said ive thought of another gig, that one in Windsor where the girl climbed on stage and started snogging me."

to which i replied "yes, the one you did with a broken leg, when that band you'd slagged off in the nme turned upto chin you."

"i don't remember that."

Me "that's because me and ronnie spent the best part of the night convincing them it wasn't worth it."

he has very selective memory.

needless to say i wish more peple whose nights we'd ruined would remind us o such details because the watching filthy spinning on his head in his suit is something i'd totally forgotten. and taking the Pleased Women Transvestites out with us.

Re: Fabulous

If it was Treforest then I can correct you. Someone asked me to remove the t-shirts and I explained that as homosexuals it was our right to express our free love and desire in artistic form and that to censor us was homophobic. The T-shirts stayed up and when the jocks in teh bar started coming into look at them we sold more that night than at anywhere else.

Shakes, I'm sure I saw Filthy trying to spin on his head somewhere, any news of the stupid twat?
