Sister Ray 29 September 2004 pictures eagerly bought a One Day Travelcard and popped along to London’s Soho on 29 September 2004 to document the Mute Records re-releases signing session at Sister Ray with Gavin & Guggi.

Commencing just after 1:30pm, the session lasted for around two hours. Despite the poor weather and the middle-of-the-day, mid-week scheduling, there were approximately 70-80 fans present, from toddlers to VP veterans.

The event was filmed by Mute, with no current purpose but for possible future use. There were also several fans taking numerous pictures; if you’ve published these elsewhere on the web, let us know – we’d love to link to them.

With a fully charged camera battery and a 1GB memory card, it has to be said that we got quite carried away and ended up with over two hundred shots of the event. Even having discarded around forty pictures as sub-standard, we’ve got far more than we can possibly publish in one go.

Today, we’re showing you the best pictures, with variety in mind. We’ll be following up with more pictures of Gav & Guggi talking to individual fans. If you were there, check back soon to see if we’ve captured your encounter on film.

    Great to see/hear that the day went well – I would have LOVED to have been there, but had to cancel at last minute… soooo jealous!

    It looks like a few people brought older items, which Gav and Guggi seemed to find interesting to look at. It must be fun for them to see some of the older more obscure pieces of their catalogue and get to interact with fans about them! So fun.

    I have been there, long way from Hamburg. The trip has been a birthday present by good friends of mine. Thanx again.
    I enjoy the Virgin Prunes’ records since 1986 and my Heresie is signed now.
    Meeting Gavin & Guggi was like meeting two long lost old friends!!!
