Lucifer, Skinflint, Mirrors – The Carlisle Hastings 25th April 1985

Alan Esdaile… I don’t remember Cracked Mirror changing the name to Mirrors?

Martin Richter… “The Mirrors”

Colin Bell… Perhaps they did it on reflection……..

Dave Nattress… No me neither.  Used to go to many of the Carlisle gigs around this time.  Don’t recall this gig or the other bands – local bands?   Not heard of, i’ll try and look them up.

Alan Esdaile… Mick Mepham was in Lucifer.

Nick Shute… Alan, not the same Lucifer that did albums ‘big gun’ and ‘exit’ ??

Alan Esdaile… No Nick. I still have the exit album, in the yellow cover and pretty sure it was a freebie if you sent postage stamps to an address in NME???

Tim Moose Bruce… Lucifer was Brian Reeve on vocals. His next band was Steel Dawn`. Cracked Mirror were great. Got their album on vinyl.

Nikki Hanson… you did till I cracked it

Bonx Trigwell… Wow, played there a few times!

Ady Aacorn… Lucifer were great, travelling up to the Ruskin Arms with them for a gig was a hoot too.

Martin Stoggell… Lucifer in the Carlisle. They all looked like Lucifer the last time I was in there.
Dark faces. Horny heads. Gothic makeup got a lot to answer for.

Dave Nattress… A reflection of the Times – and other newspapers!

Name a cover version that is better than the original one.

Peter Fairless… Melanie Ruby Tuesday

Alan Esdaile… Johnny Cash Hurt, Vanilla Fudge You Keep Me Hanging On.
