I posted this on the General Board on the "Separated At Birth" thread...hadn't noticed this thread yet...lol...but everytime I see a photo of Martin wearing that red jumpsuit with the big "A" ont it...

...I am reminded of the little guy in the middle of this photo:
The "A" era must have been one of the worst transitional periods in the band's history...even for Martin. I wonder if he caught some teasing about his attire being similar to that of Alvin?
...everybody's on the stage and it seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience...
From my documentation here at Launceston Towers it was, I believe, Plymouth Guildhall, 4th March 1972. You don't backdrops like that anymore do you.
They still do in some parts of Ireland Went to see a band in Donegal and before they came on stage I was looking around and thought the velvet drapes could do with a good clean ....and there was a glitter ball as well....and they sold raffle tickets in the interval ;D
Yeah...look at that 'A' picture where the guys are waiting for the finger paints to be brought to the rubber room....Barre and Craney look like they are trying not to puke, Pegg and Jobson are, at best 'not amused' and Ian seems to be congratulating himself on his great idea for a photo shoot theme.
As bad as those uniforms may have been, it is the least flattering picture I have seen from this period. Poor Martin. O my the indignities he has suffered. In real time under stage light I don't recall them looking anywhere near that bad, in fact Ian and Martin looked kind of good. In fact Martin hitting those clean Black Sunday notes before Ians arrival dispelled any notion that this could possibly be something other than Jethro Tull, uniforms be damned.Gotta admit Martin is a good sport.
gleamed this info from the interview on the other thread when asked Ian said most of Tull's stage outfits were provided by Angels theatrical costumes who are still going strong and indeed have huge retro costume sales.

ash: Lets hope it will be a better world!
Mar 26, 2020 11:52:22 GMT
nonrabbit: That thought is in my mind everyday Ash. I hate to be pessismistic but the sheeple will probably go back to the way it was before...'Spoons' on a daily basis and panic-buyuing for a while. And that's before we even get to the economy and what lies ahead.

chester: The coronavirus has been called humanity's unrivaled "equalizer". PM Boris Johnson has been diagnosed positive.

steelmonkey: It feels unfair. As the pandemic lapses, ignorant, lying, criminal leaders will find a way to credit themselves...but I don't hope for more suffering and death to expose those fools. Maybe they have told enough lies and done enough harm ?

nonrabbit: Who knows what lies (literally) ahead. I can hear words like 'austerity' and 'the effect of covid-19' being used by politicians for a very, very long time re the economy. Wouldn't hold my breath either for them to say when that would be over.

maddogfagin: IA - "I think we should be always told the truth. It may cause momentary panic, but I think most of us are much more resilient than that."
Apr 2, 2020 14:58:21 GMT
chester: I agree with IA. The U.S. has released the projected number of total fatalities but Canada has yet to do so. How about the U.K.?
Apr 2, 2020 15:20:05 GMT
jackinthegreen: The UK release it's figures on a daily basis, as for projected figures what's the point of that

chester: It is supposed to show the harsh reality if people don't follow the government's instructions vs. if they do comply.However, you may be right if you mean: If someone doesn't understand what they should do by now, they never will.

ash: Sadly the real figures are the ones that count.

jackinthegreen: I get what you're saying Chester, and Ash too, fingers crossed for the next days and weeks, keep safe everyone.
