Before moving to Oxford with Radiohead, Thom Yorke did a Combined Honours BA at Exeter Art College. He DJ'd at the Lemongrove, and was involved with gigs we were putting on under the banner of Hometown Atrocities. The photo shows Thom, John Matthias and Shack in their 80's incarnation Headless Chickens.
 We put out an EP with Mad At The Sun, Beaver Patrol,  Jackson Penis ... and Headless Chickens doing a song called I Don't Want To Go To Woodstock. It now sells for over £100 on collector's sites, with the 'rare Kylie sleeve' going for even more.
Incidentally, the rare sleeve came about when we lost a batch of the proper ones and made do with some overprinted back pages from The Exeter Flying Post, which was advertising the Ep. I can't remember why I called it "Disgrace To The Corpse Of Kylie".
