The american music magazine “On Tape” has an excellent multi-page interview out (Issue 117 Jan/Feb. 2017) with Stuart Staples about his recording studios in the past & about the recording process of the current 2016 album “The Waiting Room” and other recording stories.
Some nice photos of the Studio atmosphere made by Neil Fraser & included in the article.
Lately some other rare, original prints surfaced on ebay too.

and some memories from Neil Fraser on that gig:
“I do remember that gig…it was a long night.A byline regarding that show…there was a review of us from the Scala gig in the Melody Maker (or Sounds, not sure which now) with a photo of me and Stuart. I had a ‘proper’ job at the time and my boss, who saw the photo, basically asked me to make a decision between my job and being in a band – I was taking some time off work due to tindersticks commitments – I think I made the right choice.“
