Secret Seven

Secret Seven at FAC 51, The Hacienda, 18th May 1983. shivadescending at songbook.


Mick Middles' recent reviews of the Black Velvet and Come Home EPs in the Quietus also included a fine chronology of The Distractions.  Whilst details of Steve's post-Distractions work with the Escape Committee are yet to find their way into the public domain, Mike's Secret Seven had one brief foray back into the fray with the lovely Hold On To Love single b/w Up In Smoke on Bronze Records (BRO 164).
