Original Promo Photo Test Shots

Here is a selection of photos which were taken as "test shots" for the Band's very first Promo Photo, featuring that "starting lineup" of Keri, Ady, Gary, Geoff and Kev. Despite mounting pressure from Agents and Promoters, the Band were immediately so busy in 1987 that they simply didn't have time to do any Promos straight away ! But in early 1988, a concerted effort was made towards some "official" publicity material, beginning with this series of black & white "test photos", taken at Wollaton Hall, Nottingham (exact date unknown).
This should have evolved into the first ever Official Publicity Photos of 617 - but shortly after, Geoff announced that he was sadly going to have to leave the Band, so production of any publicity material was put on hold.
This series of photos - only recently re-discovered in 2016 - remains as the only record of any Promo Photos of the 1987 "starting lineup".
         
         
         
 
         

Change of lineup : Keri (vocals); Ady (drums); Gary (keyboards); Kev (bass); Rich (guitar).

There were quite a few photos taken of the band in the first few months in Clubland, certainly at gigs "close to home". But after this, the photos become much more "sporadic". Sadly, once Geoff left the band, there are practically no "live" photos of the band lineup with Richie Rich on guitar. However, he was in the Promos :

By Christmas 1988, Rich had left the band and original guitarist, Muz, was back in again. Although this next section again consists purely of "archive photos", this lineup is the one that exists today.

Change of lineup : Keri (vocals); Ady (drums); Gary (keyboards); Muz (guitar); Mark (bass).

With Kev having to leave the band, his replacement was Mark, taking over in Summer 1989. This particular lineup then remained stable until the band decided to "retire". But although this was the longest-lasting lineup, there are surprisingly few photos of the band during this lengthy period, until the "farewell tour" towards the end of 1991.

Farewell Gig :The Unicorn Club, Coventry, New Years Eve, 1991/92

This next set of photos were all taken on the night of 617's "Farewell Gig" - "farewell" to regular touring anyway ! With the exception of a couple of "one-offs" in 1992, the band didn't play together again until 2005 !
