Ellis, Beggs and Howard Promotional Items

September 27, 2013

It’s Friday, and we thought it might be a good day to go back in time to the late 1980s………….and again to the ‘Ellis Beggs & Howard’ project.  Raiding the KajaFax archive, we today showcase some great memorabilia from that time.

EBH was Nick’s first ‘proper’ project after Kajagoogoo and in the March of 1987, he teamed up with Simon Ellis (Keyboards) and vocalist Austin Howard to form the band.  The group played a few low key gigs in and around the London area and also some support slots in bigger venues courtesy of then stadium fillers T’pau.

Our first item is a ticket stub, taken from Birmingham Goldwyns, where the band played in 1989.

The band played in and were promoted extensively all over Europe, where their album and singles sold in considerable numbers.

Here is a wonderful vintage hand-signed press photo:

and on the reverse…..

Finally, we have this rather special DJ copy of debut hit Big Bubbles, No Troubles.  This custom die cut sleeve checks in at 12 inches of 45rpm black vinyl under the catalogue number PT 42090DJ.

We can’t play you the disc online…..so here’s the video.  Enjoy!

        Ha ha ha…. the post was originally scheduled for a Sunday but other things came up that seemed more urgent so it got shuffled along a bit 🙂 I never adjusted the text though.

        Glad that you liked the items Denny!
