Wonderful memories Andy- do you have a large collection of "London Calling"?

Andy Walmsley said...

Sadly not. About 3 years worth. I even threw some away whilst packing up when we left the UK!I'll be dipping into them for a few posts during the year. Don't suppose you have any Chrissy?

Chrissy Brand said...

Not many- I used to sell the lovely things too, and subscribed when I left Bush but eventually recycled them.

I do have all 12 from 1975 if you want to borrow them?

I'd love to. Please email me Chrissy.
