Bragg & the Blokes
(Reprint of a) ticket to the show...
L-R: Billy Bragg (dancing and vocals), Martyn Barker (in the background, drums),
Simon Edwards (in the back, bass), and Lu
Simon Edwards (bass) and Lu Edmonds
finding another way to wait for the great leap forwards... (Over the course
of the song, they playfully tried to back into each other until one or the other
gave way; my impression is that Lu won, at least for the time being.)
Ian McLagan on the keyboards.
Ben Mandelson on the bouzouk.
(If you look closely, you'll see that he has a Badge of the Mustapha on his
lapel, a very difficult-to-find item these days.)
"You can take home your own Lu Edmonds!" (Out of the range of the camera, Lu
put on his best impression of the straw figure, although there wasn't quite
an equivalence between his nose and the banana.)
Front: Ben Mandelson
and Lu Edmonds (cümbüs).
Back: Billy Bragg (guitar) and Martyn Barker (drums).
Grant Showbiz at the controls.
A poster for the show, announcing the "adult child of alien invaders." (For
a full-size version, click here.)
