This is one of the outfits I wore on stage back in days of The Tourists when we were performing in places like The Hope and Anchor, The Nashville Rooms, Dingwalls, The Electric Ballroom and The Marquee.
God knows what I was thinking, but I certainly wasn’t trying to blend in. I found the fabric in Berwick Street, and asked a lovely girl called Carol Semaine if she would make it up for me..Carol’s boyfriend was Knox, the lead singer and guitarist from The Vibrators, and we were both managed by David Werner. I’ve gone all Seventies today. Miraculous how I can remember any detail…
Ps..How do you launder tinsel?
Ps..I had fun performing at Scotland’s National Portrait Gallery last night. Great venue!
