WASP Synthesizer

My first synth was a Wasp as pictured. I had read about them and one day when walking down Tottenham Court Road with Jim Ross, a friend from school, we walked past Throbbing Gristle. I had just read a cover article about them in Sounds or NME and we stopped them and asked for autographs, which they happily did, signing the back of a Wasp brochure.
That was 1979.
I saw them at Centro Iberico shortly afterwards and my life was changed forever. I took this plastic marvel on the Fuck Off Records tour Christmas 1979 where I joined The Entire Cosmos one night and another night we played as Those Nice Women Who Care (with members of the other bands on tour) singing improvised Christmas carols as I recall.
