First time was in Listen Record Shop in Glasgow when the track Axe Victim was played. When Bill’s solo started about 4 minutes in, me and about a dozen other guys ran to the counter to buy the album. First time of many when I saw BBD live was at Queen Margaret Uni, again in Glasgow just after Sunburst Finish was released. Me and my mates were too young to get in but bassist Charlie sneaked us in regardless. Finally I’m from the hard core fan side who wasn’t too fussed on Drastic Plastic. Like many other BBD supporters, I was into the band primarily for Bill’s guitar playing and prog-style songs, and that album didn’t really have either for me.
