John’s Pics

The HR Tongues possessed an enthusiasm for onstage pyrotechnics arranged and engineered by the bassist John Walmsley. Mock up amplifiers and prop guitars would be ignited in mid performance along with loud sound effects, smoke bombs and other unexpected pyrotechnics that would keep the audience keyed-up. Here are some of John’s pic’s from the Tongues era.
