Japan boys at school....

These comments were posted by a Catford Boys School teacher in response to a Smash Hits cover featuring David was posted on a blog:

I taught David Sylvian when he was still known as David Batt at Catford Boys' School. He was always smartly turned out; polite, well behaved and friendly. He got on with his work and, unlike his younger brother, who became Steve Jansen, did not attract a great deal of attention. Richard Barbieri, who was also in the group, was a similar character, though probably more outgoing. Neither struck me as likely to male such a name for themselves. By contrast, the late Mick Karn (Antony Michaelides) was a colourful, "arty" character at school and it was no surprise to learn that he had gravitated towards the pop world.
I am sure they deserved their success.

So sweet... and just how I imagined they were like then. It seems as little David was every teacher's dream pupil, a proper young gentleman! Thanks for sharing.

Yes thank you for that, it backs up what Mick said that David took some time to become friends with him at school and that Rich was always good.
