Flood – Honeymoon Striptease

This week I am celebrating the 25th anniversary of my first gig.  It was at the Bournemouth International Centre, Cud were the headline act and supporting them were a local indie outfit called Flood.  They released a couple of EPs in 1991 and then vanished.  Honeymoon Striptease was the second and last EP.  I am told that their biggest gig was supporting The Stranglers in 1991 at Brixton Academy.

After the first post about them, readers have let me know what the Bournemouth 4-piece did after Flood subsided.  Graham Parker went on to write an England football song as the Metatarsals, which has had around 20,000 hits on the internet and was featured on More4 news. Graham also wrote the music for a film about London homeless charity The Connection.

Nigel (Tish) Day went on to produce various bands based out of Switzerland, such as the all girl band, The Delilah’s and  Bianca Story.  Sadly, Nigel died tragically in 2010.

Charlie Bloor was called up by school pal Alex James in 1996.  He collaborated with Alex, Justin from Elastica and Stephen “Tin Tin” Duffy in the short lived Me Me Me.  They had one single called Hanging Around.

As for Collier…couldn’t even find out his first name.
