      Hi Tony,
      I worked for Rob at the Moonstone for Rob while he was in Fallen Heroes and French Lessons. I also worked there with Axis.
      If I can add anything to whatever Rob says, I will.

    Hi there, I am wondering if you have any memory of a gig at leasowe castle on 12th march 1983 – probably not but it was a significant day for us – our wedding. The teenagers from that day are still together (!!!) and now farming in mid-wales. Last night we played a recording of Reel Music, what memories…….

    • Rob says:

      Actually now you mention it I do.
      Happy 30th wedding aniversary!
