    @Catbird: No, sorry. Roger Tull (co-writer of Food and Sex Mad) contacted me through last.fm after I wrote a journal on the band and asked me the same question. I've tried emailing journalist John Tucker since he seems to know everyone nwobhm related, but no reply so I guess he doesn't know either.

    I love London's burning. How come noone has recognized these guys? Dwids voice is worth it alone.
