The Alternative at the YMCA, Kirkcaldy

The Alternative at the YMCA, Kirkcaldy, Fife, circa October 1981.


The Alternative at Kirkcaldy YMCA, circa October 1981. One of three prints found discarded on the floor of 'The Pad' in Dunfermline, where The Alternative practised. In the photo are Gordon 'Gogs' Smith on bass, Eric 'Rice' Beveridge on vocals, Dougie McHale on guitar, James Murphy on drums and Craig 'Trinity' Nichol on vocals. And I'm not entirely certain, but I think that's probably me on the extreme left of the photo, standing in front of the 'rising sun' backdrop.

This is one of three photos from this gig which weren't taken by me, but which I found discarded on the floor of 'The Pad', the lean-to shed at the 'old' Lauder Tech in Dunfermline where The Alternative used to have their band-practices.


The Alternative at Kirkcaldy YMCA, circa October 1981. This image has been scanned and restored from the most badly-damaged one of three prints found discarded on the floor of 'The Pad' in Dunfermline, where The Alternative practised. In the photo are Dougie McHale on guitar, Eric 'Rice' Beveridge on vocals, Gordon 'Gogs' Smith on bass and James Murphy on drums. Gary Lovatt, Russell Wood and I can be seen standing against the wall; they were standing on chairs, which is why they appear taller than me and my face is partly obscured.
