Deke once told me that as the Man-band prepared to record their ‘last’ studio album none of the band wanted to give any songs to the sessions, preferring to keep them for future solo projects. So Deke said fine we’ll fill the album with mine ! Tensions were running high, and Phil Ryan launched his keyboard at Deke’s face – which stopped inches from his nose, trajectory curtailed by its cable, with the words, ‘Oh no you fucking won’t Leonard !’
Both cuts on the demo 7”, taken from The Welsh Connection, were written by Deke.
