I've never heard this session before. I have their Bitter 12", which I'll endeavour to rip and upload at some point. Don't know anything about them and there's nothing in the way of enlightenment on t'net.

I saw them many times in the early eighties, mainly at the Dublin castle in camden. 5 piece band lead by Chris who was Canadian, heard a few years ago he was suffering from Ms. But hearing this has brought back some very happy memories.

Lash Larriat was Khris (not Chris) Martick and he was from New Zealand not Canada. We used to be good mates and even share the same birthday. He contracted MS over 20 years and is now confined to a wheelchair and seems very bitter about the way life has treated him. We fell out over something I didn't actually do and though he did eventually apologise, he's resisted all my efforts to befriend him since. Bitter Tears indeed - very apt, I do feel sorry for him but in the end I had to leave him to his own devices. Shame really he was such a nice bloke.
