The Days
Royton Assembly Hall
16th August 1991

I thought I’d post this up as a little known band in a little used venue.

I first saw The Days earlier that summer at a free festival thing at Hopwood Hall College in Middleton –I’ve seen no mention of it since. Was it a Heineken sponsored thing? (Probably!)

I known that The High played and suspect maybe The Mock Turtles did too – I saw them a few times around this time. I recall they had an enthusiastic, riff-tastic guitar/vox frontman and obviously liked them enough to go to this headlining gig and to buy their 12” single – which I can’t quite lay my hands on today.

Royton Assembly Halls also hosted gigs from Curve and Mock Turtles around this time.
