Guest Blog: More from Sam Knee The Bag I’m In
Following on from yesterday’s guest blog we have more photographs to share with you from Sam Knee’s brilliant new book The Bag I’m In. Thanks again to Sam for allowing us to use them.
We loved this dreamy photograph of The Vaselines taken by none other than Stephen McRobbie.
This shot was taken circa ’87 around the same time as their debut 53rd & 3rd release and Stephen remembers the location as the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow.

Here’s a previously unseen shot Vic Godard that Vic sent to Sam. It’s from ’75 taken during the pre-punk Soulboy era.
(Keep your eyes peeled for a guest blog from Vic next month).
Graffiti Records Glasgow Photograph by Peter McArthur
The Graffiti Records shot is a wonderful ’77 timepiece. Loaded with new waveisms from the Slaughter & the Dogs badge, Patti Smith t, Hammersmith Gorillas and first Jam singles on the wall. Shot by Peter McArthur mover and shaker on the embryonic Postcard scene.
