They did Zimbo, one of my favourites from the Crocodiles set. Enough said. Also remember leaving the gig (in late April note) to find that it had snowed. A lot.

what happened next
Echo and the Bunnymen The band had folded by 1990 after McCulloch had left in 1988 and Pete de Freitas's death in 1989. McCulloch and Sargeant regrouped as Electrafixion and then with Pattinson revived Echo and the Bunnymen in 1997. They still tour today.

The Blue Orchids remained actively till 2007.
