Scruff

At 20 I was a scruffy sod and as can be seen from the pic I may have been from time to time rather the worse for wear due to a drink or two.I was earning my living as a musician though and so all was forgiven (maybe not by my mum!). This John Peel session for the BBC was recorded by my friends and I not too long after the pic and includes a track 'Jihad' that proved rather popular when we played live and on the radio.In later years when sessions came to be repeated this track was somehow missing! given that even 30 odd years ago I was virulently anti Islamist I don't suppose it comes as much surprise.

Duane Eddy and Eddie Cochrane had nothing on you.

Did you know John Peel before he went to Radio London?

Good music there, Thud!

It's up.

Well done, Thud. Not many can say they've earned a living playing music, let alone get noticed by eminent DJs.

What a spiff doo, I couldn't even grow a decent beard until I was 30, and then the hair on top was already going-off. Congrats on the longstanding anti-Islamic standard!
