Louder Animals, Peel on Piranhas, Vault photos and free mp3's
punkdaddy writes: Had yet another email from Dave from the Cheesybits, he of the hilarious House of Cheese. He's unearthed some interesting old photos from the early days: the Resource Centre and Vault and various shots from around Brighton. Click the safety pin and Vault buttons to see the photos. Thanks yet again Dave.
Of course we also have our regular monthly downloads of Birds With Ears and Ammonites tracks, four in all. Stefan sent in a 1980 Evening Argus article on a gig they did with the Airtight Garage, you can download the pdf on the Ammonites page. Plus the creation of a new band page for the Louder Animal Group, an offshoot of Nicky & the Dots. They had a brief lifespan and blurb on them is very limited, so if you have any recollections of the band, know their full line-up and anything else you think may be of interest, get in touch.
Stewy happened to dig out a sound clip from the John Peel show some time in 1979. His gushing praise and enthusiasm for the Piranhas shows what a positive impression they made on him back then and how he was determined to get to see them play live in Brighton, which was probably the infamous gig at the Alhambra, where Peel was afforded the utmost respect and deferral from the normally anarchic Brighton audience. Also found a couple of old photos from the Attrix Shop days.
