Comments:  Saw the band play 3 times in 1984 in Norwich. First gig was when they supported the Smiths and they were better! Those were the days :)

Comments:  I thought the red guitars where always hulls top band, their 1st album was a great piece of work only to be out done by the second album, but on this web site it dose not exist? I thought only Stalin got away with changing the past. Rob Spavin (Holmes) was the only real working class kid in the band, born down Barnsley street, went to Mersey st school and Lister, a true working class hero, his dad was a docker, but brought up by his mam alone with his brother Paul(is he working now, who works these days). it was always rumored that 2 members of the original band where in the SWP, well its funny, like i said only one member was really working class, the rest just wished they where, forget the best work you ever did, even worse Deni it ever existed, long live working class hero's like Rob, and Steve larkman too for that mater. you where allways a good band, but don't Deni you best stuff. joe

Comments:  JR, Jerry and whomever else may be reading, Slow to Fade was one of my favorite albums of my teenage years, and I have been something of an evangelist for it ever since. At least 2 of my friends have copies of their own, and songs like 'Marimba Jive'; 'Cloak and Dagger' and 'Crocodile Tears' have made it onto countless mix tapes over the years. I still remember the day when bought the just-released STF at the now defunct 3rd Street Jazz record shop in Philadelphia (the only decent indie reocrd shop for miles) when I was 16. With no John Peel equivalent and with limited access (because of their expense) to the Brit music weeklies that sometimes were my only source for info about new bands, I would occasionally buy albums in the 'new wave' racks just because I liked the cover - that's how hungry I was for new music. I liked the cover of Slow to Fade quite a bit, and I rushed home to play it hoping to god it would be brilliant. Needless to say I was not disappointed. I DJ fairly regularly in Philly now, and I'm happy to report that at 1:30 am on 12-11-05 everyone who came out to hear me spin at Johnny Brenda's bounced along happily when I closed my set with 'Heartbeat Go!' One question if I may: I have what to my knowledge was the only record Jerry released post-Red Guitars, a 12inch of a new piano-only version of 'Crocodile Tears' I have often wondered if he released anything else and also what he did after leaving the band. I was delighted to find this website and wish you all the best with it. With All Good Wishes, Tom

Comments:  My buddies and I formed a band (The Switch) and were very much inspired by a Hull band making it, we saw you at Leicester Poly in one of your later shows, I remember what nice shiny Fenders you all had...We loved music and it stands up today. Halam you genius...what might have been, I hope you are well & happy. I'm now living in New York, we all grew up...so fast. Peace, Paul.

Comments:  Hi Guys! I was introduced to your band by someone I'd rather forget! Crocodile Tears and Slow to Fade are my favorite songs ever! Sad to say, those two songs are the best memories I have from my time with him. I wish I had a copy of any of your albums, but alas! I've never seen one sold in the US. I hope to see something from you for sale here, someday, but until then, I'll just download the mug thingy. Peace! M.

Comments:  I was going through some old albums and came across a Debut, Issue 03 with Blancmange on the cover. I rememeber how much I loved that album particularly the Red Guitars song Within Four Walls. I wanted to find some tracks digitally but can't seem to locate 'em or haven't looked hard enough. Anybody? I guess I'll put on the vinal and get along that way.

Comments:  Hi - only saw you play once - at a private party in the Avenues - in the very early 80s. Mr Kidd kept referring to his written notes to remind him of the words to the songs he had written so recently. Keep on truckin'.
