Moving on to the 2nd selection of images of unknown bands playing at Fat Sams in the mid/late 80's.
A couple of the acts in this lot look familiar to me but I just can't quite put a name to them.
If you're not so sure who they are either, you may have better luck spotting someone you know in the crowd.

  1. The guy fronting the band in picture 10 looks a bit like Andy White to me. I remember him just as a solo act though, no backing group, so I'm 50-50 on that one.

  3. Pic 12 is the Mighty Lemon Drops... could pic 3 be the Armoury Show? Looks like Jobbo Jobson!

  4. Sorry to go off-piste here...but has the drummer in Pic 3 just taken a boot in the gonads?

  5. That's picture 4 anon, but yeah you're right enough, he does seem to be suffering for his art!

    Thanks for the band spotting progress Alan.
    That guy does have the Jobbo jaw, but I just can't imagine Jobson wearing a Public Enemy t-shirt. I mean, he used to don a cricket jersey!

  6. Its not the armoury show Alan as John Mcgeogh was the guitarist and that doesn't look like him playing the guitar
