I would normally make an effort to clean up a photo using my computer software - remove scratches & stains and so on - but on this occasion, I reckon the mucky surface looks OK to me. Enhances the image even.
So who are the trio in grey who approach the photographer?
That's right, you managed to suss it out from my wee clue there - it's The Supremes - nah, only kiddin, it is of course Grey Approach, pictured in 1981 up some closie in Westport.
Jim Low, Colin Warden & Gordon Walker, who were once described in Cranked Up as "Dundee darling boys", their position in the local music scene back in 81.
Unfortunately, Fanta (GW) has admitted that the guys chose to mess about as a band rather than work at it, and so cut short any potential they had. Now we'll never know if they could have gone on to greater things, like their idols at the time, Joy Division.
Colin was the one who left grubby paw prints on the synth - Jim & Fanta were the ones who scuffed at the tunes.
They may not have made much of a mark on the alternative music scene at the end of the day, but they sure did leave plenty on their photo!!
Big thanks to Dave.
