I posted a pic of Clive from Fast Max here  recently; he's now provided me with a few more and graciously allowed me to add them to the site.

Mainly Clint related, there's some excellent nostalgic stuff there which I think will be enjoyed by all.

Take a look...

Agreed. Fantastic stuff.

Strangely I was plying Crintabulated on my computer today and heard Clive saying my name...now that was weird!

Is it me or were there a few dodgy hair cuts amongst these great photos?

I used to have a custard coloured tank top with a red, yellow and green stripe going round it. 26" bottle green flares which I wore for school once and got done! Leather patent shoes and some stacks I recall. Love it. Horrendous!

Great photos by the way, Tim. Thank you. Like Mr T, noticed the cars, and could name them apart fom the nearest one, but will have another look.

Superb pics, thanks Tim for putting them up. Brought back memories of the Coach House basement gigs; standing room only, bottle of Newkie Broon in hand, 50p on the door as I recall. Nice to see a chot of the outside as well, with the Carling sign artfully altered to look as though it says Coach Horse. All gone now.

I lived in Penmaen Terrace in the early 1980s so the shot of The Tenby is very familiar. To answer Rob W's post, I think the nearest car is a Renault TL but I could be wrong. That Mk1 Granada looks the dogs; pure Sweeney. Nice orange BL Mini as well.

Absolutely no idea how I managed to miss the Rockpile gig though.

thanks for the pics Tim, a real "time capsule" from a bygone period that doesn't seem so long ago...

I was once told that the car in the Sweeney was in fact a Ford Corsair.

OK, a bit of a bonus - some pics that didn't make it to the site as they veered ever so slightly off the topic. In Matt's own words -

Quote
Rockpile show from Swansea's Top Rank, 1979.

Nick "Thunder' Gravenites & John "Lightning" Cipollina, in 1986 from the (now defunct) Chi Chi club on Broadway, San Francisco.

Clive loved Nick & John's music, especially "Monkey Medicine".  As I said, he dug the blue Gravenites T-shirt I gave him.

Nice. I still have the Lew Lewis badge from the Rockpile gig @ Hammy Palais.

That gig had the Specials as special guest act. Amazing gig all round.

Another support act I ever saw in that era was U2 supporting Talking Heads. Put in my diary - 'Like the Banshees fronted by a bloke.' Who knew?

Excellent (though wee) obituary to Clive in Record Collector courtesy of Mr. Heatley.

Somewhat poignant pictures from July 2003 at the Patti featuring Micky, Clive and Snob.  RIP.
