Belly and the moonflowers
Radio 6 just played a Belly track – lovely to hear it. It triggered some thoughts about bands I used to listen to in the early 90s.
There is one in particular I would love to trace – Bristol's finest – The Moonflowers.
As I recall the band decamped en masse to the south of France to live in a barn with a pensionable hippy. They had a reputation for this sort of thing, after performing naked at the Ashton Court Community Festival and nude album covers.
I had a couple of albums – Hash Smits, From Whales to Jupiter… , but they got stolen when I was at Uni. I think they are now both unavailable.
If anyone (long shot I know) thinks otherwise or perhaps has a copy it would be great to know.
