These pictures are from a time when all I wanted to do was to be a photographer for The NME. Most of them are taken in around the clubs of Cardiff, some have survived better than others and some did not survive at all.
I did get the odd picture published by The NME and other music mags including a 'fanzine ' put together with some friends which went by the great title of 'Up Yours'
There are more pictures to follow.
