Long before the Kelvingrove Bandstand was revamped, it provided a rickety if much-loved gathering place for the city's musical youth, the competing style tribes who would usually patrol in like-minded packs.

Once a year, from the 1970s through to the early 1980s, musical differences were set aside, for a day, for the annual Radio Clyde Rock Festival. Carry-outs would be bought, 'funny fags' smoked, bottles chucked, and new romances kindled as the youngsters gathered on the old red blaes terracing; punks on one side of the stage, rockers on the other, and a bewildered bunch of the non-aligned in the middle.

And the music on offer was just as varied as the audience; from hard rock to punk, rock 'n' roll revivalists to new romantics, all the world was here. Great fun if the sun was shining, less so if it was tipping it down.

So, hats off to this trio (just as well, as I don't think they could get a hat on!), for coming out in their full, spiky punk plumage.

Sure I used to meet that guy, on the left, down at the original Cathouse club, on the Broomielaw, which was housed in the former Glasgow Sailors' Home.

Now, thanks to the magic of Facebook, we can name the date as May 1984, and this tasty trio as: Jamie Usher, Lorna Jack, and Barry McCallum.
