    Good band, I had this record somewhere but I had a rummage around last night and failed to find it so its probably got culled in the past somewhere, in the process of moving house.

    The interview is a bit grating with Steven Wells, the interviewer coming across a bit smug, which he was, from what I recall..He was a holier than thou socialist skinhead if I remember…

    We were a little band of allsorts! Not the best interview but the photo was fun; New Cross made to look like countryside! And was my make-up really that bad? I blame the dodgy 80s – when in doubt always blame the decade…. But – didn’t the dog come out well? Should have interviewed him!

    Hi Ruth,

    Great to see you posting, your presence here has been sorely missed. Maybe next time I’m back in the country we can have that Orchestral Wildebeest in the cupboard reunion.
