Death Cult rehearsal – 1983

"Very early photo taken by Bleddyn Butcher of me and drummer Ray Mondo in our rehearsal room ("Sunday School" in the Elephant & Castle area of London) on the same day we did the first Death Cult press pics on “Suicide Bridge”.
This is quite a rare one in that I’m playing the double cutaway Gretsch White Falcon, that I’d picked up in my Theatre of Hate days, through a Fender Twin Combo.
Also worth a mention is my haircut as I was clearly ahead of the game on the man bun front… but guilty as charged on the “Canadian Tuxedo” double denim haha. However, I kind of stand by that... if it was good enough for Martin Sheen in ‘Badlands’ it was good enough for me!"
