Re: Joe's teeth

Cliff Cooper founder of ORANGE amps was the manger of the Little Roosters. He cut a deal with Joe after persuading him to get his teeth sorted with Cliff's Australian dentist Doctor Newbury in Harley street London. Joe really didn't want to go, but Cliff persuaded him.

Re: My semi-annual plea for Rat Patrol, part 27

I was sure I had a Snotty Snail version of Rat Patrol but can’t find it. I did find 2 boots claiming to be Rat Patrol but clearly neither are and I think appeared around the same time as Walk Evil Talk? I think you mean this one, from round about the same time the Snotty Snail titles appeared and w...

Re: The Replacements Sing!

Perfectly timed, Inder, thank you! I’m currently reading The Lemon Jail, by their roadie Bill Sullivan. How such a bunch of alcoholic adultescent headcases could also have such brilliant musical chops, and eclectic taste, is beyond me :mrgreen: My pal just picked this up — thanks for the tip, John!...

Steve Priest of 'Ballroom Blitz' glam-rock sensations Sweet dead at 72
Sad about Steve, love a bit of Sweet. He was a right character as well.

Re: 1976 Show - October 27th at Barbarella's Birmingham

Surely that photo is wrong—didn't Joe only use that guitar for one show? Yeah I think so - borrowed (from Johnny Thunders/Heartbreakers?) for the opening night at The Roxy, Jan 1st 1977. Not too many great live pics from that era that i haven't already used. Remember this is the second time I remas...

Re: 7” Vinyl Sleeves - Minutiae Help Please

Just pulled this one outas example. PVC cover almost 40 years old trashed- cover and vinyl as new 😊 I had loads of vinyl in those style covers, also for decades(!) and they went wrinkly. When I read about the possible damage caused to the records I had a look through mine and found the wrinkling wa...
