Rare Pictures?

Postby cs15 » Thu Nov 22, 2007 11:50 pm

I stumbled across this lot of pictures and it features some photos that I've never seen before and don't think they've ever been in print. The League with Siouxsie & The Banshees (says 1975 but I assume it's '79) Does anyone have the influence to get us a better look at these?

There are two shots of Philip from'79/80 ish and another from 1982/83 available to buy in the public section.

Anyone seen these before? Anyone have available to post here?

The League MK1 photos are far more interesting. :)

Andy I have some shots of Susan that I personally took on the Crash tour at home. There is one picture that I later got Susan herself to sign and at the time she signed it Joanne said to me 'Oi that's a bit revealing how did you get so close?' Susan just blushed. :)

Hahaha you missed one hell of a tour. They weren't exactly the 'polished' act that they are today back in 1987. Some of the outfits were funny. The wigs and stuff were a laugh. Ah my first ever League gig in Liverpool.......I remember it like it was yesterday.

I used to have some trousers like that (men's, obviously).

Can't do handstands to save my life though.

I really love these shots. The ones with Siousxie are dead casual and fun. Would love to see them full sized. Anyone any clout with this site? db?

Andy did you delete your posts from here? I look mad as if I'm chatting to myself which I suppose isn't the first time. ;)

Bit of a storm in a teacup really and I deleted a load of posts. all sorted now.

Back on subject. I'm really impressed with this pic:

Who would have thought Joanne had it in her! I'll be even more impressed If she does it on Sunday :lol:

It's a bad angle. She looked damn hot during Romantic ;)

That IS a sling on Jo, I've seen it elsewhere, I dont know story behind it?

Middle Photo: I've not seen that 'Dress' before on Sue. but its got to be from her 2002 'Black Bra' Phase. :lol:

At least no one can accuse our sooz of being a boring dresser!

Those are some seriously good pictures indeed. Beeing a pay site, it's good that they provided quite large previews. Nice to see photos from the Romantic period, but more recent ones are truly amazing, showing Phil, Jo and Sue at their best. The girls are absolutely fantastic, I absolutely love them!

Proving that she 'does wrap up' on cold days, here is one taken at the same time as the wonderful 'black string dress' (well 6 months apart) ;)

Also:

Does anyone have any more shots from this photoshoot in April '81 for the website. I know Susan and Joanne were photographed on their own at the time; but it was early days and they weren't known well enough for the solo photos to be used in magazines of the day. Everyone knows the band shot with the girls holding up a lamp post from this session, but it is rare to see others like this one from the same shoot turning up.

Sue wont thank me for digging them up :lol:, but I think she looked great in the early days (and it is her look here that got me into THL in the first place ;)

I *love* that poster!! It's so wrong in so many ways to have been released as a retail poster (not the least being back to front) but it's turned into one of my fave ever pix of them.
We'll always be together...however far it seems...
