Title: MK and DS pictures
Post by: Elise on November 10, 2016, 07:51:43 PM
So, since the 'Rare MK pics' thread has been deleted I thought it would be nice for everyone to just share their own pictures of MK or DS somewhere else :)

Keep them coming, I love to see them!

Early headband pics there.  I think we established he never wore one on the UK leg of the tour in late '82.

Cool electric blue jacket.  Is it custom made with short sleeves so they don't get in the way?

These seem to be rare indeed. He looks unfamiliar with short hair (or wet?) at those times. But fresh colours. Not exactly that kind of humble understatement of today. I like those head bands!

To the light of your post I did some little researches and found out that member Pensaboy was the author of that thread but appears now as "banned" with almost all of his posts removed.
Dunno what sad thing happened with him but always a strange feeling seeing a long time and active member going away.

By the way, as it often happens with threads like this, many links simply would die as time goes by, so I think, to really preserve the pictures, you either need to upload it here on AMIT or on really, really reliable image hosting website. So to me there's nothing wrong with a new topic.

I never understood why they were using the same Mark Leialoha picture again and again, specially when it was from the last DS days to promote the MK solo career 4 years later...

MK didn't look like in that picture at all in 1996...

I think they photoshopped a 1996 shirt onto his body for authenticity though because he was wearing one with playing cards on the chest for most of '92.  I don't remember that pink/cerise one being worn at all on the OES tour. :think

A lot of the professional photos are taken at certain shows though and not every concert.  I can recall the Edinburgh show in '96 I attended was professionally shot by photographers.  There was a leaflet on the seat when I entered and it said that if I wanted to purchase any from tonights show it was being photographed.  Never had that before.  I think I sent away for one.  Need to have a look.   :think

Those were the times when German photographer Guido Karp was Mark's tour photographer. He made 50 (or 100?) Photos available from those tours, mostly and naturally shot during one or two German shows. They gave you the illusion the pics were from "your" concert and you got that leaflet where you could set your order. It was first time done so in 1991 and  also that same way during the 2001 tour.

I'd say Cafe Racers, I think in the Myles Palmer book is a picture of MK playing with them that looks similar.

It's not from the Myles Palmer book - I just checked, but I recognise the tin of toffees on the piano as 'Farrahs of Harrogate' toffees, just up the road from Leeds, so I would say it was taken, possibly, from Mark's time in Leeds, circa 1969/73.  However, David is wearing a similar outfit in another photo in the Myles Palmer book - and on darkshiver's avatar, so maybe it was from the time of The Polytechnic gig in Leeds, 1978.   :think

Dunno what sad thing happened with him but always a strange feeling seeing a long time and active member going away.

Explanation:

There was a thread were Pensaboy (not in a nice way) reacted to Quizzaciously about his MK songbook. Some insults (from a couple of members) were pointed to Pensaboy because of his reaction. That's why he decided (his own decision) to leave the forum. He told me that he was insulted (by some people here) many more times in the last year. He deleted almost all his posts and topics, including the populair rare pics topic. After that we gave Pensaboy a ban. We tried to recover this topic out of a backup, but unfortunately almost all pics are lost, so we don't put it back here.

And now we have a new pics topic  ;)

Yes, I definitely agree.  It's the Duolian String Pickers days for sure c.1970.  He wore that bunnet in another picture from those days.

The String Pickers never lasted long.  It was a case of hair today, gone tomorrow. ;)

Colin wrote:
- Picture 3 and 5 "But they were pleased with the new song, "Portobello Belle ", Mark had just written and were itching to rehearse it. If I recall correctly Mark and the boys had had a bit of a late one the night before. Perhaps it shows!"
- Picture 1,4 and 6 "Dire Straits down by the waterline in Greenwich, summer, 1978.Between Thames barges, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits pulls a face for the camera, 1978"

I agree, there is no harm in him. Fortunately, John is not the one who harbours a grudge over the years.  :)

Looks very good, although I can't get portraits drawn after the photos... why bother, if you have a photo anyway? Especially a hi-rez photo like this.

I recall seeing this picture of MK and John Illsley playing live with the Talking Heads in 1978 in big size and without that "bar" in the image, did any of you have it?

This is not from 1978, not from the January tour when they were supporting Talking Heads. It is from summer 1979 when both bands played together on some  German (?) festival gigs, and I think some TH joined DS on stage, not the other way around. There are some more pictures of it around.

Never heard about it but makes sense as all DS are on the stage. I never saw more pictures of this, do you have them?

I *might* have them, at least this one a bit bigger, but not sure. A quick search did not get any results yet.  :(

But I remember seeing this one for the first time in a Spanish book on DS (which unfortunately I do not own), it was rather a big format. I guess the 'bar' in the picture is a shade where the page is bent when it was scanned from this book.

yes, that one is from the Spanish book, but that´s the only one picture I've seen of DS and TH

I love purple and always thought of that as the forgotten Pensa.  In the guitar Stories documentary they discussed with Rudy going to the café and jotting down notes on a napkin before announcing the flame maple MK1 as the very first Pensa-Suhr, however he used this on tour with EC at least whole year before that.  He certainly had it in January '87 for the RAH shows, whereas the MK1 debuted at the Prince's Trust Gala on 6th June '88.

Well, As I told in my post, I don’t remember the number of pages I opened during that session. I wrote: “Mark knopfler portrait “ and simply I opened one web, and another, and another and another and so on and suddenly I saw the first picture and the second one in another blog page. I thought that it would be cool to share these pictures but if Any AMIT moderator thinks it’s wrong to share them, say something and I’ll delete them!

The first one has been on facebook months ago. Not sure who published it online in the first place, it probably is a Insta-pic and obviously from close family or friends. Both daughters seems to be proud of their father  :) :) Katya sure looked proud when she stood next him at Chalke Valley History festival last year when he signed autographs

Oh, those terrible striped trousers. Hope they will never come back into fashion.

You have to understand and accept that Dire Straits peaked exactly in the heyday of bad taste, in the mid-eighties. If you look at the clothes alone, that can be fun now, as these great pictures show. More importantly, though, the bad-taste fiesta also took its toll on the music. Some of it, I'm afraid to say, has survived until this very day, in Guy's synths and keyboard playing ...  ::)

Yes, I have a vivid recollection of distinctive features of 80s. All that 'splendor' coincided with my first experience of being in love and I used tons of radiant make-up to look as beautiful as possible.  ;D
