Nick Drake used to be in a band with Chris de Burgh.
1989-1991. They dressed him up as a drum machine on stage coz they didn't want to scare the fans.

I was once in a lame indie band who had once had someone from Mika Bomb on bass (ask Brainers) but this was 2000
Now I'm not in any band and STILL can't get my 'shit' together.
Its a sad sad road.
PROLEFACT: Mike Leigh was breifly in The Fall.
but it's not the same Mike Leigh who directs fillums.
same as the Marc Riley in my year isn't Lard
'from the sublime to the ridiculous'
