Jon, Simon, George, Big Stevie, Nick, Josephine, Barney
This photo was obviously taken by a professional, sometime
around the release of the What Noise album. Simon is in the picture,
and Barney, George, and Jo have not yet disappeared. This is all I can
tell you about these particular sessions as I wasn't there at the time.
BTW: Jon had for a long time enjoyed dressing in various bits of female
clothing, and otherwise adorning himself with "objets trouves" (note
travel tag in ear). The skirts, etc., were not a signifier of his
sexuality, but more an expression of his experimental spirit, and a
dislike of boundaries. His girlfriend Katherine also had a very sharp
sense of fashion, and I'm sure influenced his choice of clothing.
