Chapel gig photos discovered

‘See ‘em & weep, discovered last week in a barn in Wiltshoire.’

Fingers has uncovered some photos from the Cadillacs’ first gig in the Chapel, Weymouth, plus one where the joanna player didn’t turn up, apparently. And if anyone knows who the band in the last photo is, please drop a line to U2, who would like their hair back.

The two and only High School Harlots

He's sure fine looking, man, he's something else

Nice legs, shame about the piano

Hang on, how did they get in here?

Tape of The Cadillac Babies’ first gig surfaces

The rare tape has been discovered by a slightly hungover Slim underneath some Doll Noodles in the first week of the new year.

Recorded at their debut gig in Chapel in Weymouth, the dusty cassette is the earliest taped Cadillacs performance and features the additional vocal talents of Nick Slob and The High School Harlots.

This, erm, priceless artefact is now in the safe fingers of Marky P who, along with acclaimed producer Johnny Dread (aka Johnny Chong), is digitally remastering the tape. As Chong, I mean Dread, says: “There’s nothing like a good bit of new wave.”
