Me as part of one of my all time favourite bands, The Happy End. There were 25 of us in all, a mixture of men and women getting together to perform political songs from around the world. We recorded two albums, one for Circus Records called There’s Nothing Quite Like Money and the second for Cooking Vinyl Records called Resolution.

It broke my heart for a while when I left this band because it was like losing a family. But life had got too complicated, with the success of The Communards and a solo career looming. All good things have to end! – SJM
