29 years ago today

Twenty Nine years ago I played live at Exeter College of Art and Design – The only reason I remember this is because it also happened to be my birthday.

The video (give it 30 seconds to get rid of the images) was shot on a VHS machine.

Details from Wikipedia below:

Finish The Story were formed in Evesham (UK) in 1981. The original members were Nicola Mumford, Garry Smout and Peter Bright (aka This Window).

Formed as a cathartic reaction to the death of Nicola’s boyfriend and with only a handful of songs, a home-made video and under rehearsed, Finish The Story appeared for a one-off gig at The Phoenix Club, in Great Malvern (UK) as the support act for The Dancing Did

A review of the gig appeared in ZigZag (magazine) written by Sara Jones who said,

“Finish The Story’s debut gig was better than the second coming of Jesus Christ.”

With only a few gigs to their credit they supported The Cure at Hammersmith Odeon. Their first release was on Gunfire and Pianos (SITU 17) released by ZigZag/Situation Two

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
