With her trademark dark eye makeup and black leather jacket, ex bass player Gaye Black AKA Gaye Advert was the quintessential punk poster girl of the 1970's. Advert appeared in several editions of the music weekly Sounds, NME and Melody Maker, and after a couple of appearances on Top of The Pops she cemented her place as the 1970's Britpunk "It Girl". During the late 1970's, she was photographed in London with the likes of Captain Sensible (the Damned), Joey Ramone, Motorhead's Lemmy, and the Sex Pistols' Paul Cook, as well as her fellow band member (and tlong term partner T.V Smith. Gaye spent the 1980's and 1990's working on political reform, feminism and animal rights and now devotes her time to her art. “I have made stained glass panels and jewellery over the last fifteen years, for friends and commissions. In recent years I have made a series of collages, framed and on gold painted boards, which reference my past and explore the contrast between attraction and horror” Gaye Black.
