Ghost Town.

Have a read of this.

Ghost Town, what memories does that era have for you.

As a young Staffordshire policeman I toddled off to the Toxteth riots and ended up doing many hours working in Liverpool. Protected by a pair of football shin pads, a cricket box and a perspex visor to stick on my ordinary policemans headware, I most definately experienced a few moments of absolute terror but working 19 hour shifts didn't half put some overtime in my pocket.
The guy in the photo, am I right to say thats the same bloke who went on to form the Funboy Three? It certainly looks like him.

Its also the year that Karen and I got married.

My first Wedding Day was in 1981 too, just before Charles and Di.
That was one of my 'other lives'

Yes mate Terry Hall is his name.

I thought that his music was fantastic and his collaboration with  Banarnarama.
