Sparkling Apple at Sunbury Hall, Delta 1973

Because Halloween was a couple of nights ago, we feel compelled to present some frightening vintage shots of Sparkling Apple in “The Early Years”! Shown in this post are photos taken at Sunbury Hall in Delta BC, on New Year’s Eve, 1973. The photos are definitely analog as opposed to digital, and in those days Photoshop manipulation was considered science fiction, a thing of the distant future. Good thing the photos are “action shots” (and therefore a tad blurry), because if we were in focus you could tell that I was 23 and Art was 22! The lineup at this point in time is Captain Maniac, drums; Art the Fart the Heavy Metal Kid, guitar; and Rocky Rockamoto on bass. And yes, even in those days we were considered to be “too loud”! The amplifers, incidentally, are vintage GBX (one of which Art still owns after 38 years), and this show marks one of the first times that Art played the Gibson “Les Paul Recording” guitar (affectionately known as Barbara).
