By accident found myself at one of their first gigs. Blown away I invited them out on a photo shoot the next day. This is the original line up with Henry Padovani.

Peter, very fond memories of TriX (and pushing the heck out of it Smile ). I lived in Montseratt 1982 and 1983 so met many groups that recorded at Air Studios during that period. I was shooting a FM in those days but unfortunately my Ex-wife has all of the prints and Negs. Returned to London in '83. Many thanks for posting Smile. Nice relaxed image.

Thanks tommiejeep sometimes it's about being in the right place at the right time...and you end up with something that, over the years, others like, love or consider iconic. The day I went to meet a rather lovely lady at The Roxy in Covent Garden London the band started to play and I got goosebumps. Just knew there was something special happening so I shot a shed load of pictures. Lucky me.
