Personal Quotes (2)

Shows were very different then - even as the headliner we did a very short set by today's standards and sound systems were really primitive. But the girls made it all worthwhile!
We were lucky - we got spotted playing in a club and signed up pretty quickly, and then our first record was a hit.
