Flash Bold with Bullion Shadow for the band name, on the cover of “Do The Standing Still (Classics Illustrated)”, the debut release by The Table, a punk rock act from Cardiff, Wales. From Discogs:
The band consisted of Russell Young (vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass), Tony Barnes (guitars, bass), Len Lewis (drums) and Mickey O’Connor (guitars). Young and Barnes had been performing together since 1971 in the band John Stabber, and formed Do You Want This Table (later shortened to The Table) in 1972. However, they did not own any musical instruments, refused to tour, and stated that they were not a “real” band and had no future in the music industry. Despite this, they were signed to Virgin Records and released “Do The Standing Still (Classics Illustrated)”, first recorded as a demo in 1975. The single was an NME ‘Single Of The Week’, rapidly becoming a cult favourite, and subsequently appearing on several punk compilation albums.
Diana Fawcett’s cover design features a photo by Trevor Herman that shows the band members standing in the ladies’ underwear section of a department store.
