Big Flame

Big Flame

Members: Alan Brown (Bass/Vocals), Greg O'Keeffe (Guitar), Dil Green (Drums).

Formed in Hulme, Manchester in December 1982, Big Flame appeared on the NME's "C86" compilation and recorded four sessions for John Peel's Radio 1 show. They played their farewell gig at the Manchester Boardwalk on 11 October 1986, styling themselves as "Manchester's favourite jazz fuck trio explosione!".
After the band split, Brown joined Ron Johnson label-mates A Witness (with whom Big Flame had previously toured) as a drummer before forming The Great Leap Forward and O'Keeffe joined Meatmouth.
