POST SCRIPT: Patrick Moore


Nathan McGough "Manager of The Pale Fountains before I took over, went on to manage the Happy Mondays".
Patrick Moore "I worked with Michel Duval on the Island / Crepuscule connexion before it folded, and briefly managed Richard Lowe and After This, as well as resuming my amateur career as designer, doing sleeves for Life and After This. Then I set up Elemental with Rob Holden: the main functions of which were a) mindless hedonism, b) art terrorism and c) to manage Max (the group headed by ex-Ant, Kevin Mooney). We also managed Murder Music (later Renegade Soundwave) and Fishing For Clouds (later Frazier Chorus). None of these groups released any product during our relationship with them. This venture ended when I got into writing. I work as a journalist and biographer under the name Philp Hoare. I've published three books: a biography of Stephen Tennant, SERIOUS PLEASURES; NOEL COWARD: A BIOGRAPHY; and WILDE'S LAST STAND: DECADENCE, CONSPIRACY & THE FIRST WORLD WAR. Last year I co-curated the ICONS OF POP exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, which is now touring the UK -- although sadly, without having managed to sneak any Opt / Twi acts into it..."
Rachel Rooney became a teacher and married Phil Hartnoll of Orbital.
Dave Baker Went to work for Malcom Garrett and ended up as Phil Collins' favourite sleeve designer.
Mark Baker Went to work for the BBC, then became staff photographer at CBS.
Madeleine Groves Madeleine (cousin of Rachel and Olivia, and like Rob and myself, hailing from Southampton) went to Winchester Art College and contributed a drawing to the insert of "The Fruit Of The Original Sin" (TWI 035) and then trained at Kew Gardens and is now a specialist in carniverous plants.
