Yup , La Costa Rasa is actually just Andy Mills , Claire's bloke ...who was one time guitarist for Salvation .....who'm Claire did the sound for ...... and shared a house with Danny (from Salvation) .....and some cats .....and sometimes a skinny midget with sunglasses on .
Wink

Stayed round there a few times , sat on someones hat , bust someones guitar string ....never got to try the sunglasses on though

Claire is lovely by the way , looks exactly the same now as she did back in the 80s .

Intriguing. At what time did Claire and Von live together, and what kind of place did they share?

I had no idea. Was it a flat or a house?

In interviews, especially that 'welcome to my ashtray'-interview, I always pictured Von living in one of them red brick Tudor houses. Is that just my imagination or did he really?

I assume it was the address on the Reptile House lyric sheet. 7 Village Place IIRC. Which is about 1/4 mile from where I live.

AFAIK they didn't live together. My mate used to live in that house too Wink he also sat on the hat and the funny midget with sunglasses on Surprised

now he shares with Danny, whom Claire comes to visit.

Annoying thing is, he's so unfussed about it all Evil or Very Mad

Not sure about sharing with Danny, if you mean Salvation Danny, as he's in Burley with just one other person in the house at the moment. However I'm getting another feeling of shrinking worlds as the words 'Isle of Man' are in your web site. Do the words 'York' and 'City' mean anything significant to you by the way? Wink

Do you know I'd forgotten that the globe trotting one had shared with Claire for a bit! Half remembered conversations about how Von approached his meals when he came round are coming back now! Still, better stop before it all gets too tabloidesque...

Ah. As in the Mish? Word was that poor Mick was a bit worse for wear since the split in '96. Any idea what he's doing at the mo? I remember reading he had his own studio and that he was on a jury for a local music competition.

No, not too steady which was why he wasn't in any reunions I suppose. However, he seemed a whole lot beter the last time I chatted with him, though I didn't ask what he was doing. Happier times though...

This is all very interesting, for someone who had always wondered about the Claire thing. Are there any pictures of this elusive woman? Someone said she looked very rock and roll...

That's really good to hear. If you ever get word on what he's doing at the mo give me a shout. Think he did some driving after the split. I believe Wayne did try to contact him in '99 but it didn't work out. Shame, as Mick was always one of the most approachable guys of the entire Mish crew IMHO.

Mr Carly has his copyright well protected... Wink

However, you can go here, scroll to the bottom of the page and check out 12974 and 12975.

As regards the (much earlier) discussion of her residence: all I know is that she was listed on the electoral roll at Village Place through 2002... It wasn't me...
