Gerry Thing of Thornton Heath was an original punk who was in The Plague Dogs who were originally called “No Publicity” which was apparently Gerry T’s thing – a so could be the reason I can’t find anything about the guy or his music online.
“I don’t remember Jerry (Thing) being a ladies man. It was cool that he lived in Thornton Heath though. This was, from early childhood, a mythical place to me as it was on the other end of the (epic) 159 bus route, our end being West End Green. Oh to ride it again from end to end. Top deck, back seat, ten Bensons, an impatient driver at the helm and a nice paper ticket”
