The first time they came to Coleraine they supported my favourite band of that era, The Stranglers. The second time around I managed to get some snaps...
As you can see, Mr Ellison clearly was one for taking the shirt off - but then from memory he was very energetic, bouncing around the stage and over the equipment as one does when one is a bona fide rock star in the making.
I've no idea what he was doing in this last shot - perhaps he thought he would be the next Roger Daltry, but I am impressed by his knee-pads. Clearly he was thinking ahead, worried that his stage antics might lead to creaky joints in his later years.
