Bob signed us to Fast Product, which really got us started. He had been the Rezillos roadie before starting the label. He quit that to do Fast Product, a move which at the time seemed like the equivalent of giving up a good, steady job at the bank(!) I met him through his girlfriend. HlRay put a postcard on the wall in Hot Licks record shop advertising for people to form a band. I liked the ad and called up to say - found a band yet? Wanna support us? She had not yet started the Flowers, but introduced us to Bob soon after. History was made (not).

Bob, if you don't like this photo appearing on the site, fix me up with a deal for Golden Gate Bridge and I'll remove it.
