    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    I'm not sure that everyone has seen or read these, but I thought I'd post them here for your perusal. I do love this story.

    They are the promo Bio's for Harry Rope, Rory Phare and Per Yarroah the 3 artists (anagrams) under which Harper released Laughing Inside in 1988.

    "She fell for it hook, line and sinker. As she wrote up the interview in the office, an old timer heard the record and asked what she was doing on Roy Harper. She'd loved the record originally, but then turned right around and wrote the most vindictive piece about me. I also had loads of radio lined up, but as soon as they found out it was me they all cancelled. Being called Roy Harper is the biggest artistic drawback in my career." - http://www.terrascope.co.uk/MyBackPages/harper.html

    I hope they upload large enough to read!

    That's fantastic! Thanks so much for bothering to do this!!!

    I have the Yarroah 7" (could have got the others at the time I suppose, but I wasn't made of money...), so it's great to see the others. Never seen those letters before either. Cheers!

    SHAUN I It's so clear on the wings of the dawn

    Excellent, Per Yarroh, Norweigan avante garde composer :biggrin: I bought these when they first came out, alas I don't own much vinyl these days, Burn The World album & a 7" single of Elizabeth, and a handful of Zappa albums are all I have left of that era. Thanks for the mammaries Travellerman!
