Pictured below is Dave Flockton - Subs live sound engineer, circa 1981.
From the collection of Nicky Garratt.
Nicky: "The Great Dave Flockton. It's funny how many engineers and roadies we had called Dave! Alvin used to follow the Rock band Stray in the early 70s and knew Dave from those days - he has a funny story about that! This photo is most likely from 1981
