Here is a scan of a 'Lepers' gig flyer from 1977. What is interesting is that Mick, Gary & Richard (not Robbie) changed their names. I particularly like Gary's. Doctor Stern (Mick Conroy) Justin Sane (Gary McDowell) civvy (Richard Brown)
A lot of bands do this at first I guess, i have a friend over in Germany that is in a band right now (3 members) and every member has an alter ego name...hmmm, funny...man, this is some early stuff (The Lepers)! Pretty cool!
Updated 04/20/2011: Thanks Richard for the update! So no alter ego's aye? Nonetheless even more interesting! I wonder what happened to them?

Having now had a long interview with Steve Walker I now need to correct my original posting. It appears that 'Civvy' and 'Doctor Stern' were NOT Richard and Mick but the original drummer and bass player who only lasted a few gigs. Mick replaced Dr. Stern and then later Richard replaced Civvy and they became Modern English. So Robbie and Gary were the two who started the band right at the start.
