Supporting the awful band Fashion in Derby, a very early, maybe the first version of Rock Section live from 1978, a two song gig then off to hospital, though I must admit the injury and destruction was down to us, the audience were quite polite considering. Part two of a 2 track set, once the P.A. had been rebuilt following their rendition of ‘Riot On Sunset Strip’, “Do you want to do some more?”.
Being only recently discovered there is also the first drum machine version of Rock Section at the end when Steve went home to pack for his forthcoming adventures. So in the absence of the gig version I ask you to just use your imagination, (Jim thought this sounded like Schoolly D) it did have real drums live by the way.

Jim always used to like to ‘strike a pose’ to this one, now where’s my supermodel gone?
One Million Fuzztone Guitars on top form in 1984, showcasing their recently recorded Radio Trent Session tracks and b-sides of the two singles. Desk Mix. ‘Tis a pity that they did not play ‘Rock Section’ at this one but the insane version of ‘Creepy Crawl’ surely makes up for it!
Only the end of Annuese exists as far as we know.

DIY rules, Jim was crap with a hammer though.
