About this memory

1963 – This image was the very first publicity picture of the band, taken as the bands popularity increased at The Calton Monument. It has, over the years, become an image that everyone appears to identify with. The distinctive corduroy waistcoats were made by David Valentine’s mother especially for the shoot.
