JON WAS A POSTMAN IN MANCHESTER IN THE 1970S AND WAS ONE OF THE ATTENDEES AT THE FIRST SEX PISTOLS GIG AT THE LESSER FREE TRADE HALL. HE WAS DESCRIBED AS “A COMMITTED AND OMNIPRESENT FIGURE ON THE PUNK AND POST-PUNK SCENE IN MANCHESTER“.
The 12 tracks here are a compilation of both rare albums from the man who would turn up uninvited to early punk gigs in Manchester and terrorise the audience by destroying rock classics in true DIY style.
Regarded as a hero by Julian Cope, John Peel and Mark E. Smith (whose first apearance on record is on this disc), John was a real postie with the GPO in Manchester.
