> I am afraid I can't help very much about Bob Calvert. XXX was
probably thinking of the time when Bob was writing his lyrics about
an aircraft which was falling out of the sky as regularly as rain.
I had been collecting press reports of this phenomenon and gave
them to Bob when I heard of his project.
I did have dealings
as a group, designing some T-shirts and a stage backdrop for them,
but we were a bit too far apart musically for me to ever be a fan.
I belong to a generation raised on late 1930's dance music and 1940's
big bands, and rock to me is mostly a loud noise. I did like the
band as characters, partly because they were rather older than I'd
imagined rock musicians to be.
Sorry there isn't
more to tell.
Good luck with your documentary. -- J.C.  <

slightly bemused by the idea of Bob being resurrected in this way.
It's rather as if I'd lived next door to Elvis for years, but had
never noticed. <
