Urge at the Zodiac and Climax, The Mix at the Swanswell

Working my way through the last few films. Urge at the Zodiac. Urge at the Climax, which had a few shots of The End at the Swanswell Tavern at the start of the film. And yes in these shots I’m struggling to take photographs in the dark, although there is a bit of the early Urge’s energy in the Zodiac shots.

    Hello Mark – only just realised DW is no longer with us, which is a great shame and quite upsetting (we used to write to each other back in the eighties – didn’t even realise he was back in England). Anyway, I have an old demo tape of his which I intend to share on my freebie downloads blog (making sure certain artists aren’t completely forgotten) and would like to use this photograph seeing as I otherwise don’t have any pictures of the guy. Will give you full credit and a link etc. If not, fair enough, but thought I should ask – all the best – LB (who used to live in Earlsdon btw!)
