I think I did attend the show in 1976 although it’s a vague memory. I thought BBD were a really interesting band at the time and the album ‘Sunburst Finish’ seems to be the most memorable for me. I liked the dynamic guitar-based arrangements that were equally really accessible songs and Bill was a great, understated front man. I’ve met Bill a few times in various circumstances, most recently at a concert we performed together for Harold Budd in 2005. Bill performed on the one Yukihiro Takahashi tour that I didn’t, in 1983 I believe, which I was sorry to miss.
I took these images when recording Masami’s album ‘Rice Music’ at Air Studios in … 1981 or 82 … not sure which.
