Strange to see my old band still has a strange cult following. We are listed first in the “The Gothic Music Handbook” and also as the first band listed in the Gothic Rock Black Book by Mick Mercer. An accident of name I know – but we are chuffed.
And one track that everyone loved was still being played in clubs in Melboune in 2002 – almost 13 years after it was made.
And of all things we are now listed among the seminal Goth bands of Perth by Vince Valentini. Vince, I swear the tiny little font was Jay’s idea. 🙂
A tiny little legend of a band.
I do miss those days.
my name is Sam, I was the bass player with Accelerated men during the brief yet eventful London incarnation of the band in early 1988. I soon lost touch with Shane and Jay after they moved to Perth. I found your blog on the net and I was wondering if you’re still in touch with either of them and that sort of thing. I would be grateful for any sort of reply even if you’ve long lost touch with them.
i have Shanes email if you want it
