wha?? So he was in an awful band at one point in his life. I've heard it mentioned in interviews, but this really puts it into perspective.

This post just made my friday. Now, I know why he is such a great dancer.

The mp3s, oh my god. Thank you! Also, once you figure out which one Ricky is, the photos are almost as funny as any Office episode. Funnier even.

Is this an appropriate enough place to piss chunks on the American versioin of the show, btw?

Those photos are priceless, though I must sheepishly admit that had I been made aware of them at the age of 13, I would totally have had a crush on Ricky Gervais.

Trivia from a college friend of Ricky's (we shared our political philosophy tutorials with Gerry Cohen): Seona Dancing was named after a girl who always looked to be particularly enjoying dancing at the UCL Union discos (UCL = University College, London).

And I still have those singles on vinyl.

Good God. Oh good God

Ricky must be laughing his arse off about this. He's far too down to earth to be embarrassed.

Holy cow! I'm completely floored. This puts the video from the Christmas special of The Office in proper perspective.

He looks a lot different sans the jowls.

y'know, I kinda like the songs... well... kinda

also, Ricky Gervais was a dead serious young man yet already doing the things that he'd mock mercilessly in his later career.

Wow. Prime material for Leno, I guess.

Ah....Ricky G. and I are the same age. Looking at those 80s photos, I must admit it pains me that I didn't have any glamour head shots taken when I was equally dewy and Adam Ant-esque....

Interesting. It appears that Bill Macrae became a hat maker.
