Mr Grenville Horner. Post-punk period.
The set went well, and they got a call to sign for some record company or other - but they turned them down as they all wanted a life! However, they did get to record a single produced by the great John Leckie at Rak Studios- owned by Mickie Most .
Last week, while we were in London, Gren got a call from his mate John to come along and be an audience at the studio for a recording with Baaba Maal, the Senegalese musician with his friends and performance poets Lemn Sissay, Zena Edwards and others.
We went. Brilliant! like being in some parallel universe. Young men in tight trousers, beautiful young things in African dress, musos and tech geeks twiddling knobs.
John Leckie introduces.
I sneakily took some snaps while they were setting up. Slow film and a loud camera did not help :-)
