Various Artists – Hessle Road [1989]

by on 19th April 2016

Four track EP themed around the Hessle Road area of Hull and produced by Keith Gay.

The back cover has the B side tracks shown in the wrong order, whilst the front cover (by Bob Mason and June Gay) pays homage to the Beatles’ famous Abbey Road artwork. The picture was taken by a photographer who was standing at the top of a ladder in the middle of Hessle Road, early one Sunday morning. Left to right: Mike Greaves, Ched (Keith Cheesman), Keith Gay, Pete Smith.

All scans on this page by Hull Music Archive, with thanks to Paul Bird (Bird’s Nest Records) for sourcing the record for us.

An 11-track cassette also exists which features all four tracks from this EP and seven others… details to follow on that one!
