It's our first London appearance and cements a continuing relationship with Rough Trade that started when I took them my first single, aged 14, and they bought the entire pressing with money out of the till. Rough Trade, I salute you!

I ran a club called the Hangout in Liverpool in the mid 80's, which tripped the light fantastic every week to psych and garage, plus live shows from the Cardiacs, Freight Train, Zodiac Mindwarp and more.
