"This is the Press Kit sent out by DJM Records for the launch of the Studio Sweethearts 'I Believe' single in 1979. It included a copy of the single, a 10x8 press photo, and biography of the band. It makes entertaining ready though...
“Billy Duffy at just 18 is the youngest member supplying second guitar, backup vocals and an interesting Dulux dog-like appearance.
He played in local rival band to Slaughter called the Nosebleeds and admits to ripping off a lot of his style in those days from the New York Dolls”
it also goes on to say "Billy's interest in fashion will no doubt make itself felt and already the band is looking prettier than its predecessors." So, nice to see even as the youngster of the band I was getting my influence in there ;)"
