Yes - tis true, twas me. But I was only with them for one summer and never made it onto vinyl. My stint was sandwiched between a John Peel session and said single release above. Line-up was:

Malcolm Raeburn (Vocals)
Ian Heywood (Guitar, Vocals)
Bri Tag (Bass)*
Jon Rust (Drums)
and briefly Tom Bliss (Keyboards)

I've seen *Brian's brother Andy Rawson (ex Sneakers) resonably recently, and Jon drummed in my 'seminal' Otley folkrock band Behind The Wall (co-founded with Steve Fairholme, now in The Duncan McFarlane Band).

The Ags reformed for one fantastic gig in the last days of the late lamented Duchess - and sounded as fresh and edgy as ever. Bankers Kid, Mister Sister, Home Movies, Dietician, Love Is A Blanket Expression, Losing My Lust, and - remember - Taxi!

Quite a few musos from that period are still around - Hipflask is probably in touch with more than me (though The Three Johns and The Mekons can be reached from my MySpace site).

Lummy Days
