20 years! God I'm getting on a bit 8O . I remember Saints and Sinners too.

Best gig I ever saw At King Tut's was Mother Earth back in the day . Another memorable one was big toothed Hendrix impersonator Randy Hanson with none other than Noel Redding playing base.

This isn't King Tut's , but it gives you the picture. No Noel unfortunately.

Glasgow ya bas!

My Wife says that I have "Mr Trebus" tendencies. She's probably right :oops:

Early 90's Joy Division tribute band?

Johnny-come-latelys. Glasgow had several of them even when the chaps themselves were still going. (Hello, Positive Noise). :D

We had been doing it unconsciously since Terminal Strange in 78,but it wasnt until Tam Coyle had the idea of actually being Joy Division did we put it all together.Btw i think Mr Coyle still owes us for the gigs. :P And for the record i actually did play on these ones............................................
