“This is one of shirts I had made up in the mid eighties by Mich, who was my girlfriend at the time. I liked to have bespoke stuff made to wear on stage so we would go to fabric stores and I’d pick ones I like had she would hand make them for me. She also made the paisley one on the Love album cover as well as the Electric cut of denim jacket and the ‘Manchester' Biker jacket from the Edie video.
I wore this a lot onstage and you can see plenty of pics on here where I have it on plus I also wore it in The Cult Melody Maker cover photo shoot in January 1985.”
