Printed under John's name on the back of the 'Miles Away' sleeve... What's it all about?

Shake/Shake were a band featuring Duncan Bridgman and Jo Dworniak, who co-wrote "A Long Time" and went on to show up as backing musicians on "The Garden".

There's more on Wikipedia

Shake / Shake was the name of the band that both Jo Dworniak and Duncan Bridgeman were part of at the time of the Miles Away single. They both contributed extensively to The Garden. They were also both in the band I-Level who released the magnificently titled album Gardening By Moonlight.

Hope that this helps... wink

Hate to be pedantic Rob, but wasn't "Gardening By Moonlight" the name of the band?

A quick Google search reveals some samples of their work....

Ooooooops... frown

Quite right, sorry about that...

For once my memory has let me down - advancing years and all that - normal service will be resumed, etc... wink

Duncan Bridgeman and Jo Dworniak were members of a band called I Level. You'll find an entry for them on http://www.allmusic.com/

I have an excellent 12" single of theirs, titled "In The Sand". And I recall they scored a club hit in 1983 with a song titled "Minefield".

Seems from Herbet's link that Duncan featured in the band Gardening by Moonlight, but not Jo.

I hope this helps.
