Personal Quote:

"Although, wearing pink suits can cause problems," [he] admits. Interview (with Huw Collingbourne) from 'Flexipop!' magazine, circa 1981.


David Jaymes recruited, for his band Modern Romance, trumpet and horn player John Du Prez - who often worked with Eric Idle on Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1982) - which featured Terry Gilliam - who designed cover art for David's previous band 'The (Leyton) Buzzards'. See more »
