Kentish Town 1987 - 1

Robert Laugier

Robert Laugier: "I saw John twice in October 1987, the first time in the Hammersmith Odeon [09 Oct], and the second one, two days later, in the Town & Country Club of Kentish Town.
For the first concert, John arrived wearing a raincoat which he kept only during the first song, and then took off.
Two days later, he arrived wearing with the same raincoat... but kept it on all concert long!
Each time John was lowering a hand, sweat was flowing down the sleeves like a cascade."

Roberton 1984

Anton Corbijn

One of the most famous pictures Anton Corbijn took from John. The location must be the environments of his Roberton cottage. As to the date, it probably was taken late 1984 as the back picture of Sapphire (released November 1984) seems to come from the same session. Also it was used by NME in Richard Cook's review of Sapphire (where John provided the names of the sheep by the way).
