Did it all start here?

Undeniably a Candle single, and unquestionably the contact details were written by Martin. But the inclusion of the name Muff Winwood on the other side of the paper is fascinating. Muff of course eventually signed the band and was presumably on the list of people the band wanted to contact. But the handwriting seems different on the signature, and Muff when asked had no recollection of it.

Whether or not this is a pivotal artifact, it’s still a fascinating relic from the period during which the band were chasing a deal. The “Bungalow” was attached to the McAloon Garage in Witton Gilbert, now demolished, in which the band played songs and rehearsed.
