no, but i remember the winners in 1986 were "spring heel'd jack", and also on stage were "the flexible penguins", who's bassist paul went on to play keyboards in "blammo!" who became "speedy" and had a hit in 1997 with "boy wonder"

Many thanks for your speedy reply Pete, but I'm now intouch with Dan from BMR as of yesterday. I sent a **** load of e-mails out on Friday requesting BMR info. And there was mail waiting for me first thing Monday morning! Int the internet brilliant?! Out of interest do you know geezer called Glenroy who used to be in a bass heavy, AR-Kane style band (late 80's - can't remember the name - think it begins with an 'A').

Thanks again.

Cheers,

Jason

sadly the glenroy i knew died in 1997. he was in "in a belljar", and also "media premonition" and "psychoterrorists" and "slbc", the last three of which i played keyboards for from 1992 to 1996.

 

all my bands are listed on this link...be warned, there are 33, and some have rude names!

wow! you must have seen fcs late 87 or early 88, shortly before the end of part one.... i was the drummer and left in october 87 before ben joined.

 

mik was an AMAZING singer, best voice in sheffield by far, and his lyrics were fantastic. not seen him for about 12 years...

Very sorry to hear that Glenroy has passed away. I had a nagging feeling that you were gonna back to me with that news. If you don't mind, could you tell me the circumstances? If you'd rather, use my e-mail: jason.smith@boidesign.co.uk. I used to know Glenroy about 1989-92 in and around Broomhall, and him breaking out in song all over the place! (i have no head for dates). And am sure I saw him play at the Hallamshire (wicked venue as I remember). 'Psychoterrorists' that was it. Don't know where the "it starts with an 'A'" came from...

Once again Pete, many thanks.

Cheers,

Jason
