Punk Photos: 999 Live in Liverpool in 1978.

I was a massive fan of Punk band 999, and bought their first singles – I’m Alive and Nasty Nasty in 1977. I think their 1978 singles are better than the 1977 ones, however, and two of them remain standout iconic Punk anthems: Feeling Alright with the Crew and Homicide.

Their first two albums – 999 and, especially, Separates are also great Punk records.

A very poor photo of 999’s Jon Watson, Nick Cash and Pablo LaBrittain on drums.

I was lucky enough to see 999 play Eric’s Club in Liverpool a couple of times, when the band consisted of Nick Cash, Jon Watson, Guy Days and Pablo LaBrittain.

These photos were taken at my first gig, on 30 September 1978, when I was thrashing around at the front of the stage – hence the quality of the shots.

Half of Guy Day’s head and most of my finger.

Admttedly they’re rubbish photos (except for the headline one of Jon Watson, their bass player), but I’m posting them more for Punk Posterity than for Art. (Lucky that…).
