Some time around 1980 I saw Auntie Pus at the first (and last) London Pathetic Punk Festival. The guitarist was about twice the age of the rest of the band. About three years later I saw the same guy playing guitar for The Mekons. Recognising him from the earlier gig, I engaged him in conversation about Auntie Pus. I later in the evening found out that he was Dick Taylor, legendary guitarist with The Pretty Things and founder member of The Rolling Stones. I must be the only person ever to go up to him and say "Didn't you used to play guitar with Auntie Pus?"

They're not particularly young but I think one of A Place To Bury Strangers is a fair bit older than the others.

And there's the guy at the back here of course.

Rico with the Specials. Ok he wasn't technically a band member but he did stand out a bit when he performed with them

We know, Tim, that's their photo a few posts earlier.

Mark E Smith is an item with the Spanish girl in the Fall photo. Looks aren't everything, clearly.

That little shrivelled head reminds me of one of them 120 year old tortoises

I think cult celebrity status and money can help attract the ladies.

She's actually Greek and they're married - you must be thinking of another looker with which this dashing modern man-about-town has been associated. Wonder what moisturiser he uses?

I'm guessing his penis is 3 foot long soft. That could be the only way such a union would happen.

According to the BSP book which I'm re-reading ( and damn good it is too). The Librrtines' original drummer - known as Mr Razzcocks- was well into his 50s. Some of you might well remember...

Here you are, waiting for him before school.

Thought you might have made a connection with someone in a similar age bracket at those early Libs gigs Bov.

Am now at that bit in the BSP book where they go and play the Scillonian Club, would warm the cockles of Kev's heart if he could forgive the frequent terminological infelicities viz the islands' name.

Didn't know there was a book. I was at said gig and very good it was too. I hope they include the bit where the next day, in the middle of summer with bright sunshine and blues skies, they walk past my house as I'm outside fixing an outboard motor, and they're adorned with various scarves and other winter attire. They must have been sweating their bollocks off.

They are very scrawny, I'm not surprised they needed the layers.

As for the book, I knew no-one actually read the reviews on the main site... It's called Do It For Your Mum, written by their brother. Highly recommended. The trip to the Isles of Scilly gets a relatively generous four or five pages. A few bits of local colour, my fave being "We didn't get out to Bishop's Rock lighthouse either. The band did make an on-stage announcement for any volunteers with a boat to take us out the next day. And one young man did enthusiastically volunteer his services after the show. He talked very quickly while his eyes rolled independently in their orbits. Other locals vigorously advised us not to let him take us out to sea..."

Hang on. You were mending an outboard motor, did you say..?
