TEN GIGS I NEVER WANT TO PLAY AGAIN – UPDATE

1981-06-025smashhits.png

Thanks to everyone that has helped with the quest to source and archive these gigs.

My thanks to the Birmingham Music Archive and especially to Jez Collins at the Centre for Media and Cultural Research in Birmingham City University:

Number 7 almost certainly refers to the show at
Rebecca’s on 19th May 1977.
There seems to be no indication that the band ever played at nearby Bogart’s…

There are now four left to do. So get your thinking caps on.
They are (almost certainly) in the spring of 1977

Can anyone find anything on these?

Vikings, Goole and The Top Hat, Spennymoor
“No comment, just bad”

Shrewsbury Rugby Club
“instructions from the management were: “set your gear up under the TV lads” – the area was 3ft square.”

The Dolphins, a ‘disco bar’ in Morecambe

Country Club, Ashby de la Zouch
“We played to one person”
