New Romantics at The Crypt late 80’s

supplied by Tony May

Tony May… Here’s an old pic taken in the ‘New Romantic’ days at The Crypt… Alex Bailey is the one in the black vest and Joe Strange is the guy wearing the make up and with the denim jacket but I don’t know who the other person is?  87-89 ish..

Martin Richter…Nicky Blewitt ? A Rain Station poster – there`s a story

Karen Sweatman Was Blackman… That’s what I thought

Clive Williams… I’m guessing 88 could be 89

Martin Richter… possibly a bit earlier ? I`ve got the press cuttings somewhere !

Alan Esdaile.. Very sad news, I’m sure lots of people here will remember Mo. I used to bump into him every few months and we would have a good old chat. Happy memories of gigs on the pier. Always smiling. Very sad. R.I.P. Mo.

Clive Richardson…. very sad news, Mo was a great guy.

Tom (Paul Thomas)… Mo(Moo) his funeral will be held at the crematorium at 2.45 on Tuesday 26th January. Please pass this on to the musicians and others in your group, as a lot of them knew him.

John Wilde… The wonderful smile that was Mo.
Journey on Big Fella. Thanks for your company. You will be greatly missed.

Peter Fairless… That’s sad news. I knew him from when we were kids playing down in the park. Didn’t see him very often over the lat 20 years, or so, but always stopped for a chat whenever we bumped into each other about town. Lemmy needed a roadie, obviously!

Martin Richter… sad news – always had a smile – RIP Mo.
