Church with bell

Jos van Oost

Jos van Oost took this picture when on vacation in Lanarkshire in 1998.
As you can see for yourself, the Church With One Bell well deserved a paint job at the time. This is the Roof of the House of the Holy.

Glasgow 1988


This photo with Alan Thomson on bass was found on Twitter. Geezer Butler confirmed that is was taken at the Sub Club, 28 December 1988.

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).

Poster Paris 1983


Saturday 9 April 1983, John's band performed at Theatre le Palace in Paris.
"Le Palace présente | John Martyn | And His Band | Theatre Le Palace | Samedi 9 Avril 83 19h30 | Location: 3 Fnacs, Clementine"
Apparently the show was sponsored by FM radio station Boulevard du Rock.

Portrush 1979 - 1

Maurice Shannon

John played on the one and only Causeway Coast Music Festival. This ambitious festival was held on the last weekend of August 1979, in Portrush, Northern Ireland.
The organisation lost much money on the event so it stayed a one-time affair.
