The Singles

Back in 2000 we got back together in Birmingham to Record a new version of Midas Light and 4 other songs. We released this under Heavy Rock Records as a CDr called ‘The Singles’ – available to still buy. We had all travelled the world since 1980 and came back mature men still with our juvenile humour. This picture was taken at the rehearsal room in Bath Row Birmingham. Geoff added Bowie as he couldn’t make it in person.

German 1980

The Lambouy club in Hanau German, playing for the Americans in 1980. We looked so young and innocent. With in a hour we had all broken the law…except for that guy hovering in the background – Mr Stratford. Ironically I now live in Stratford.

 

2015 - Waking up

In 2015 we recorded and released a single called ‘Wake Up’ our best song to date. It was released as a download only. We took this photo a potential promo picture to go with the download, but ended up with a boot from Geoff.

Waking Geoff up

Another promo picture of Geoff to be used for Wake Up. This was just after Geoff died.  We put him in the microwave for this picture.

Amish women rock!

Not many people realise that Midas Light was a huge hit with the Amish Women. They posed for this photo to promote the single in their community. They were virgins when they took this photo.  Two hours later me and Geoff left.

Top of the Pops

Top of the charts in 2015 with Wake Up.  We peaked too early…again.

Pre-Man in the moon

Here is young innocent Mick in German in his nicely ironed Denim. This was the last time he smiled.

Fire in the hole

A rare photo of the band rehearsing in Fleet Street – where it all began; until it burnt down and go flooded. It wasn’t an insurance claim officer.

Mick the mule

Mick flying in to Heathrow from New England to record the Ricochet Singles in 2000. Smuggled the drugs in his hickory drum sticks.

Fatboy slim

A fat bloke and skinny bloke doing backing vocals at Sable Rose studios Coventry, recording the Midas Light Singles

More fire in the hole

The Finn testing his pyros in the Attic at Fleet Street. No officer, this did not cause the fire. The blast just misses Bryan on guitar. In the centre of the picture was Spider, never to be seen again. No animals were hurt in this picture but a few fans got scorched with the real ones on tour. 

Fire and Glass

More of the Finn’s experiments with Pyros – this time using highly flammable powder that makes false teeth. Spider setting the place alight. All of this because of fucking Stray and their song, Fire and Glass.

Thin Finn

Young, thin and fit Finn eating at a BBQ in Germany. He is still eating.

Father Finn

After finding out all nuns are virgins, confirmed by the Amish women above, the Finn becomes a priest 

Honest Thieves

The last time the boys were caught in action at the Asylum Birmingham 2014, singing Honest Thieves….because we’ve never been caught.

 

The great resurrection

After Geoff died we had to resurrect him for Feet on the Monitors. This was done by the magical box used for the gig in the sky from the Asylum animated TV series. Episode one coming soon.

Scarlett Pimpernail

After a few hours from digging Geoff up he started to turn a funny colour. We wanted to call the new song Beetroot Face Beggar, but as a favour to and in memory of Geoff we called it Blue Eyed Beggar.

World Cup Willy

This was Geoff in 1966, just after training with England in the world cup qualifiers. He decided to give up football to join Ricochet, he was also shit scared of Nobby Stiles. 

Mercat Cross 1967

Finn was playing with the magic box again and sent the band back to 1967 to play at the Mercat Cross…and boy were they annoyed…because we broke some fucking time continuum. 

Magic Baccy

While in Germany Geoff bought some magic tobacco. When you smoked it your eyes went black.  If only you could see his arse Mr Mannering.

Hijacked by Aliens

Here we are just after being hijacked by Aliens. They turned the Finn’s legs and pubs hairy red and gave Dave a head of hair.  Loz, on the end, enjoyed it so much he went back to join them and is still in outer space.

Green Porn

Here we are making a porno movie. There are some weird scenes with puppets in the desert.

Geoff gets shot in shoot

Here’s Dave with his new guitar, a 5 foot neck. According to the Guinness Book of records the longest every guitar neck. We all drank the book after the shoot. Then we bury Geoff again as he got shot in the shoot.

Burning bush

Playing on Planet Zog. Dave’s solo melts the trees.

Wake up solo

This is a still taken from the Wake Up video, with Dave doing his solo with the lumberjack and the chainsaw. What the video to understand more.

Where's smudge?

Dave playing so fast he starts to smudge….who used to be on the Ricochet roadcrew.

Lost in music

Dave looking for the lost riff…just before the aliens come (see above)

Weird and eerie

The Finn was dubbed the child catcher in this
