    You probably live about 2 doors down from me! Ex-neighbours include Mike Pickering on Rybank Road, Ian Brown on Newport Road and Bez on Upper Chorlton Road. ;)

    Mr Scruff and Guy Garvey still live in these streets too..

    Indeed, The Plateau Phase has some gems on it. Great that HMHB referenced them.

    Crispy Ambulance is one of the best band names ever. Fact(ory).

    Pauline's Gifts! Reminds me of happy days living in flats off Prinny Ave and Springbank: Grafton, de Grey, Dover and Albany Streets, playing to huge crowds (as many as 30 people sometimes) in the Adelphi and getting most of my nutrition from dry roasted peanuts and Tim Taylors Landlord in the Duke of Wellington. Dub nights at the Welly were great; chucking out time at most clubs involved fights on the pavement but there, you'd see people queueing up to stroke a cat and overheard munchie driven conversations, "Nah, come back to ours, I've got bread, we can make toast...".

    I ended up living on Farnley Square off Ella street, next door but on to Trevor Simpson, the bassist from WKDN and Nyam Nyam. Last time I spoke to him he was DJing as 'The Reverend'.

    I went to school with the drummer out of Cutting Crew.
    But on the up side I have a Crispy Ambulance t shirt.

    I've only ever had it on cassette, long gone and no cassette player either. Just looking at reissues on Amazon but postage to NZ....

    Oh, that's wonderful, so good to see Paul Jackson in there, lovely bloke, but Jim, the sound man is missing. (Jim, I can't hear myself - Jim hears this at every soundcheck and shrugs disinterestedly).

    Roger Taylor lived at the end of our road on the other side of the A3 in Thursley. Huge house set in many acres of ground. He and Brian May frequented our village pub, The Three Horseshoes, on occasions.

    Also, when I lived in West Wittering the infamous Redlands, which is owned by Keith Richards, was in the road opposite. I knew his daughter Angie and her husband Graham quite well.They live just down the road too. Their children (Keith's grandchildren) used to borrow one of my tents for sleepovers. Graham is the brother of a good mate. My cousin Rob Berry who is a blues musician and recording engineer also worked with Keith at times.
  16. Loving this thread…I live down the road from a mate who went out with Kim Wilde and provided the ‘Woaahs’ on her seminal Kids of America track

    Woaah! Kim Wilde! I really fancied her when I was a kid, only second to Debbie Harry. When I first lived in London I met Wendy James from Tranvision Vamp in the local pub in Little Venice , another Woaah moment;)

    Ive been told he has a house on the same street as Mr Scruff. Must admit I’ve not seen him around though.

    Rob Gretton definitely once lived on Chatfield if you’re over that way. I once chatted with a bloke in Marble who does reclamation antiques. Says he once found a Rob Gretton grave marker (the sort that they put there whilst the main headstone is being made) being flogged with a pile of other junk. He went to some lengths to repatriate it with the Gretton family.
