Here's a crackin' rare photo that's been hidden away for a few decades...it's Dundee punk band, Quick Spurts.
However, there is more to this picture than meets the eye.
Although the guys looked the part and played the part of being in a punk band for a few months in '77, this was actually Quick Spurts debut gig, one that took place in January 1978 at Dairsie Village Hall in Fife.
It doesn't seem like it in the shot, but the lads were shittin' themselves after being shamed into actually performing live!!
Who's who time - FORREY ROSSCRAIG is the singer reading from the jotter and wearing the latest PVC breeks from The Crypt. ABE McINTOSH (behind Forrey) is playing a bass he bought that very day and brightening up the stage with his yellow Teddy Boy drape jacket. DODE BARRY is on drums that were only a week old, and the leather clad guitarist is FANTA, who although he knew a few chords, is actually playing a borrowed guitar!!
Some of the songs in their repertoire were - "Never Smile At A Crocodile", "Laughing At Cripples" and "Sweeties", a track that was accompanied by Forrey chucking a bucket load of sweets into the crowd.
Also playing at this gig was Perth band, The Trendies.
Big THANX to Gordon Walker
