    Anyone got a decent GTMTDI live tape I could snatch briefly to upload on this post?

    Si, please prod your animal. That would be grand.

    That must have been the Blue House gig that caused Animal to send me to Coventry for a year, as was his wont. He didn’t like me criticising him for hiring an Iranian bouncer to lay into the punters

    I cant believe you still bitch about or even concern yourself with stuff that occurred so long ago. And was f-in boring then.. I remember you as being somewhat creepy in that you always hung out with people ten years or more younger than yourself. Lugworm? F-in chickenhawk more like..

    Don’t get the chickenhawk comment if that’s you, Animal. Don’t know how old you were at the time but I think you had left school. Not sure how old you think that I was.
    I don’t think Bill Auld (R.I.P.) would have chosen to live with me if he thought I was dodgy in the way that you are inferring.
    By the way this site is mainly concerned with stuff that occurred a long time ago, I wasn’t bitching but thought it might jog some memories of the Bluehouse gig & your attempt to emulate the Sex Pistols at the Nashville Rooms.

    Nice way to complain about someone bringing up ridiculous stuff from yonks ago by bringing up ridiculous stuff from yonks ago. Everyone including Luggy was really young back then and though there were some creepy people back then that did enjoy the company of young uns he definitely wasn’t one of them.

    Luggy what makes you think ‘not’ is Animal? That comment really doesn’t sound like anything he would say unless he’s really changed completely.

    John, don’t know who else who would have got upset about my comment. Apologies if it isn’t Animal, I still got on alright with him last time that I saw him a couple of years ago.

    Perhaps it is the Iranian bouncer?

    Yeah, there were a few spurious types back then but the only importuning I experienced was from old Ray, who was really just a lonely old man.
    Maybe I was too ugly. Im going to start a self help society for those who are hung up because they were NOT abused as kids..
    John, please forgive me for the protracted silence, Ive been absurdly busy and the time that gets delegated to email is often incompatible with writing cheerful, chatty and entertaining communiques.. Anyhoo it HAS been twenty odd sodding years..Not that I love you any less for it my rose. Will send you a proper state of the nation in the near future. Hope youre well.

    And the clue as to whether that “not” was Animal or “not” (?) would, I imagine, lie in their choice of psuedonyms…

    “I’m not an animal”…?

    You, Alistair (doubt if you would remember me) are a man of no small import, directly instrumental as you were in bringing into being what would become Coil.
    Thank you

    Alistair and Coil? Did not know there was a connection there. You live and learn. You sure you are not thinking of Zos Kia though Ian? Al released the debut 7″ on All The Madmen Records in 1984.
    J Balance(RIP) and Sleazy from Coil were close to this lot, and both Coil and Zos Kia shared a cassette release together in 1983/84 which was a very early release by both outfits. I used to have it actually but it went walkies in daze of yore. Gutted, cos it would have been on this site by now.
    Will upload something from Current 93 instead I think tonight!

    Luggy and John, to put your mind at rest the person called ‘not’ is not Animal but someone else that has contributed comments to this very post throughout the life of the post. So just someone pulling your leg mate!
    ‘not’ and the legite contributer have the same email details.

    Yeah, Zos was an early incarnation of Coil – J.B and Sleazy. See the *Nightmare Culture” stuff W Boyd. Also “Sewn open”..etc
    Same email details really? The rotter….

    Thanks Ian, but Penguin is right. I was involved in releasing the Zos Kia single, but never met Coil. The Zos Kia connection came through Min – and it was Mark Wilson / Mob who set it up. The other Psychic TV / Coil connection came through Mouse. She was briefly in PTV and later was friendly with Coil.

    And then Sarah (who lived at 103 Grosvenor Avenue) used to baby sit for Paula and Gen…

    Did I know you then (1984ish)? Where did we meet?

    The David Tibet mix up of Crass / others / Thatcher-Reagan Crass tapes would not fit anywhere else and although I witnessed GTMTDI in a live capacity I have, and still have, no recordings by that band to upload onto this post.

    Only just stumbled on this topic….remembering GTMTDI from back in them days…..

    I was in the Hope & Anchor in the 80’s when we had them play a bit….and then there’s the Libyan connection…..

    The Kentucky Fried Britain flier can be seen amongst the photos in the Facebook 80’s squatters group – amongst a bunch of others from that time of squats gigs and all that stuff.

    The Kentucky flier thing can be seen on this page (theres a lot of photos to browse through).

    http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=39238539639&v=photos&so=465

    The group link is http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=39238539639

    A few of the folks on here are in there as well, such as Luggy, myself and others no doubt 😀

    A couple of links from me up there – two pieces on GTMDI and the Libyan Embassy Squat / KFC graphics and their resonances with the Libyan protests today, and the squatting of Gaddafi’s son’s Hampstead mansion…

    Amazing what you can find on this internets lark, innit. A whole slew of repressed memories unlocked in one fell swoop.
