what happened next
After a lot of internal ructions, TRB split and Dolphin Taylor eventually became SLF's drummer! Tom carved out a successful solo career and also as a broadcaster now presenting a regular show on BBC 6 Music.

SLF won the best support band award in that year's Friars poll. Within a year SLF achieved the first Top 20 placing for an independent album and went huge. They did disband for a while but now Burns and McMordie lead a great SLF who tour the UK twice a year to demanding crowds. They came back to Friars in 2009 after a 27 year break.....and sold it out....yet again!
