When: October or November, 1986
Where: Live 105 radio station, San Francisco
And: Say what you will about Sigue Sigue Sputnik’s music — their pictures are great to show as an example of wacky 80s fashion.

He has formed a band called Carbon/Silicon, with none other than Mick Jones of The Clash/Big Audio Dynamite. Small world.
