Well, I'm not sure if it is new for everyone, but in certainly was for me and it's the only picture I've seen from the new ones that I like. And yeah, I'll go for the prize :)

Brilliant photo of Adrian there. Wonder what year that's from? Looks like it's from around the time of Crash.

Does anyone known the model names of the two bikes behind Philip? The one on the left is a Triumph, but not a Bonneville or a T100 and the one on the right is a BMW. I suppose the Triumph might be a Trident.

I have an interview with Phil that he did with a Bike magazine in approx '84 and he talks in detail about the bikes he owns. Didn't he call one of them the 'Orange Devil' or am I delirious? Must dig it out. I know Virgin gave him a present of one of the bikes after Dare! topped the US charts.

Yes, this does look like the scruffy image that Philip affected for some of the 1984 marketing that promoted Hysteria.

The original source of the picture, rexfeatures, does say ''The Human League - 1981, 1982 HUMAN LEAGUE'' as the photo description. Confusing, but I think is early '81 because Phil has very long hair and in november '81 they filmed "DYWM'' where he has short hair. So is not possible to have that long hair in '82 again, needs more time.

I had this picture with a set, I bought from a mail order around 1985 or 86. Unfortunately I lost them in Hurricane Katrina. In the set was the four of them (Philip, Adrian, Susan and Joanne.) One of the photographs had them standing in a stairwell another had Philip lying on a couch with his arms crossed. The way Susan and Joanne wore their makeup looks like when they just joined the group. So I'm thinking this could of been a photoshoot possibly for Boys and Girls promo.

Mmm...Actually the caption to the photo on the webpage names six: Clare Grogan, Toyah, Sonia, Mica Paris, Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall. I can put these names to six faces but there is a seventh unnamed blonde lady sitting on the extreme left, she looks familiar but I can't name her?

Now these are proper RARE. :cool:

Toyota City Boy has posted a link on Facebook (yes I know :O ) of rare drawings of the Repriduction sleeve. Fascinating stuff I think you'll agree. Well done TCB.
