The Guilty was the school band formed in 1977 by the people that eventually brought you AVO-8. Original members were Steve Hastie (guitar), Kenny Gourlay (drums), Keith Miller (guitar), George Glen (bass) and Tim Foley (vocals). Keith took over bass when George left then shared vocals with Steve when Tim left (both in 1978). Later in 1979 Kenny and Steve formed AVO-8 (MK1) with Jon McCluskey on bass. No pics from that time but we have a rough but faithful recording of the final 3 peice line-up in rehearsal at St Martins church hall in 1978.
Man Of Moon gave another great performance in front of a packed Usher Hall late last year supporting The Twilight Sad. Fleur Neale is a super photographer and kindly allowed us to share her brilliant shots including Michael’s AVO-8 T-shirt! Check out her great work at her website, @fleurneale on Twitter, @melbourneflower on Insta or Melbourneflower Photography on FB.
We now have a (limited) supply of lovely AVO-8 T-Shirts, L-XL-XXL. As displayed by the lovely Michael on his birthday. Very reasonable too 😉 Get in touch if you want one.
