Straight out of Welwyn Garden City, the second ‘garden city’ after Letchworth to be created for the overspilling population of North London. Harlow and Stevenage new towns were to follow. Welwyn was home to Bugle Records, The Astronauts, the wonderful Ludwick Hall, and the Cherry Tree pub…also Johnny Curious who by 1979 had seen it all down the Roxy, Vortex etc with the 1977 band Johnny Curious And The Strangers, recorded a 7″ single ‘Back In Pissheadsville Again’ for RAW Records which I do not own. I also do not own a picture sleeve for my copy of this record so I nicked the image below off this site.
‘Backwards In The Night’ is a really nice tune…great guitar from Alan Cowley who would perform in the first Astronauts line up.
