Our 1983 promo photos were taken by Hans Sipma, and on Googling his name I discovered that he indeed has a website and is still involved in the photographic industry. I emailed him, wondering if he still had photos from our 1983 photo shoot, and he graciously replied, saying “How very cool to hear from you. Yes I have a box of old band shots, and your file was pretty easy to find. We did this shoot on October 31, 1983.” He sent me the contact sheets, advising me that high-res shots could be obtained from him at a nominal charge. For your enjoyment, here are a few outtakes from that session – thirty year old photos, back when we was lads!
