  1. Found your site tonight through a comment over at the and just about blew a blood vessel when I saw all the Avengers gigs...

    Thank you so much for putting those up!


  2. Thanks for these fantastic posts,i think they're the almost complete Adam demos collection,wow...

  3. Thanks biopunk, glad you found the blog. I used to have a few other Avengers live shows but they've gotten lost over the years. If I find them again I'll post them.

  4. roberto, I like these demos better than anything they ever released and think it is a shame that they did not get to release an album in 1978 as it would be considered a classic now.

  5. It's actually 'Croydon' no e just two os.
