First BbK photo shoot 1993. Sian Williams (first bass player), Simon Adams standing (first drummer).

One of the first gigs I played was in 1993, I borrowed a bass from an old drunk in a pub my friend worked at. Jamie and I had a wrestle on stage at the end of the set and I broke the bass input.

The only shot of BBK as a four piece. Taken sometime in 1994, Simon Adams at the bottom is the first drummer, and to his right is John James the second guitarist.

Jamie in 1994. At some Bluebottle gig, some where.

This is one of my favourite shots. It was taken in the Gold Coast, on tour with Screamfeeder and Not From There. Richard was from ABBA, Jamie was from Taxi Driver... I was drunk.
