I found these video recordings recently of the last gig done by the Carlisle punk group “Havana Affair”. I got the video of Johnny I think or was it Pod? I can´t remember, but I had it saved on a CD and just the other day found it.
Havana Affair was a continuation of the band “Nightmares in a Damaged Brain” (see pages for more details/mp3s) and did several gigs around Carlisle in 1985-86, then we split. The members of the band were:
Pod – vocals
Duncan Todhunter – drums
Chris – rhythm guitar
Johnny – bass
Trotsky – lead guitar
The entry from the blog page:
“The Last Ride of the Wild Bunch Recording
We had just been informed (by Johnny) that the band was to split, we had a gig booked at Stars and Stripes in the week, so this was to be out final performance. The video was recorded by Smoo on the night (you can hear his laughing).
The sound quality is not good as the camera was beside the speakers, but you can get an idea.
I think it is a true representation of what we were like on stage. But there is an element of play due to it being the last concert.
