Eddie Roxy (Department S)
SPB: What do you remember of playing your first live show?
Eddie: The first Department S concert was at the MUSIC MACHINE (now KOKO) in Camden. I was playing keyboards in those days. My main memory was having Boy George standing next to me dancing, he was wearing his Romanesque/Britannia costume with a roman helmet with pink feathers on it. I had only joined the band a few weeks before so was trying to remember my bit and not be distracted. It was a great night, we went down well and support was Theatre of Hate……at the time our singer Vaughn Toulose, Boy George, Gary Crowley, Kirk Brandon, guys from Stiff Little Fingers, girls from Bananarama all lived at various times in the same squat.
