Shot By Both Sides & Rhythm of Cruelty - Spanish TV show 1980

Shot By Both Sides -  Aplauso 1980 Spanish TV show Rhythm of Cruelty - Aplauso 1980 Spanish TV show From the Facebook Magazine site; Dave Formula remembers... "Never seen it before but I know exactly where it is - etched into my memory. It's a Spanish tv show we did in Barcelona. We must have done at least a dozen takes. The  crew were all over the shop. Kept getting the wrong camera angles, bumping into us, tech problems in the control room - incompetence beyond belief. But somehow because they were relaxed and very nice to us, it was sort of good fun. We got a little bit silly that night, ending up with some stunning local transvestites pursuing us through the back streets off the Ramblas......."

The Spiral Scratch E.P. - What the butler actually saw 28/12/1976

Phil has his own website (linked from his name above) and within it he tells the story of how the Buzzcocks came to engineer their first record in the Manchester Studio Phil was working in at that time. It is a fascinating read and for me really highlights the true value of people like Phil who themselves were working in studios up and down the country with what was probably a new breed of music and musicians, and who sonically weren't really that concerned at how the studio worked let alone what the record was going to actually sound like.  It wouldn't be wrong of me to refer to Phil in this instance as the forgotten fifth member of the band, simply because what he did was made sure that no matter what was happenin
