In 1963 I was enjoying the sound of our local lads, the Muleskinners, do good with their single on the radio. This was the Hounslow Modrock band for which Colin Fulcher/Barney Bubbles designed posters and graphics. When they disbanded I was so disconcerted that I decided I would have little to do with the music industry, If that was what happened to such a good band, then there was no need to get involved in the politics of the music industry. Eventually that’s what’s what took Barney down, when one of his big biz clients said, “You’re all washed up.” and he killed himself.
