“Formed a band, we formed a band” – Art Brut
“Reformed a band, accidentally reformed a band (that I was never in)” – Me
The short version of the story: I used to go and see The Trudy play fairly often in the late 80s. Time passed, and in 2004, I ran into the singer at a party. Went home, had a nostalgic re-listen, and then searched the net for them. Found nothing. So I made a fan site. After a bit, the band decided to reform, and so I got to hear some great new music by them. Coo. And cool.
So, here then is the solution image to my October crossword. Full clue explanations are in the following video:
