When I started I thought just to cover the bands in and around Carlisle, but it seems to me as I progress with this social history of Punk music in Cumbria I feel that it means nothing without the people who were in the bands, and more importantly the “lads and lasses” who went to “see” the bands, without them it would have been an empty project.
So here is a page for people! send photos if you have them…

“The transit van pic is of our other original co-singer Harry Glaister on the way to the same gig – and sat up front (left to right) are Boogie, Nigel Holmes, and Exiles drummer Neil ‘Tef’ Telfer driving. In case you wanna use them”. (written by Si, The Exiles).
