I’ve had an email from Andrew Keeling, who is writing the definitive book about the criminally ignored Comsat Angels. Pragmatically, he’s sticking to the facts and not the internal politics (bit of a shame 🙂
He’s asked me to write about the brief time I spent with them in the 80s, so I’ve obliged. The memories I’ve unearthed are tinged with sadness, but ultimately happy ones!
Here’s a shot of Mik and Andy (plus Chris McMahon of Haze) jamming with me at my 30th birthday party. I’m playng Steve’s gold Strat. As I recall, we played “Third stone from the sun”, “Purple Haze” and others.
