“We filmed the video for 'Magic Boomerang' at this gig. Several of our hard core fans can be seen in it. Joanne Gent (keyboards) was from Heywood and me and Steve (drums) were from down thye road in Middleton so it was like a hometown gig. Mobbed and great atmosphere.”
“I was at the Heywood Civic gig in 1990 as one of my work colleagues called Colin used to occasionally do the mixing for the Turtles and he invited me along. At the time Colin was also doing some live mixing for my band the Moochers so I went to the Civic and was blown away seeing them live ( i had heard tapes of previous gigs in Col`s car on the way to work so thought I knew what to expect!) They were awesome and so much more exciting live. I still have a mint copy of "Pomona" and "Can you Dig it" was the soundtrack to Mancunian life for a while back there. My weirdest experiencience though was actually having a fledgling comedian called Steve Coogan (Martins brother) supporting the Moochers at the Boardwalk many moons back.
Great times and maybe its time for a Mock Turtles retrospective as they were ace!
