Wall of Glam

 Alvin Stardust. Big in Rochdale apparently

I've just finished listening to a fascinating little documentary on Radio 4 about Rochdale street artist Walter Kershaw. In the 1970s, armed with his paint brushes, he'd set his scaffold up against a gable end and create giant murals; it made me wonder how the troubles might have played out if Kershaw had relocated his business across the Irish Sea.


  1. I always thought Alvin was a strange exemplar of Glam......Marc though!

  2. Alvin Stardust was old enough to be Marc Bolan's dad.
