As far as I can recall this never became a 9-monthly regular thing, but still, what a lineup! (I mean, who would they have put on the second one?) Basically a directory of bands who could do post-hardcore/emo thing well without sounding too much like The Get Up Kids, plus a few more straightforward punk bands and the more "difficult" stuff from Paper Cut Out and The Wow.
STAPLETON, THE LITTLE EXPLORER, THIS AIN'T VEGAS, LONG LIVE - all still get regular listens round here... thing is, I probably didn't even go (for a fiver!) as we were so spoiled with gigs back then and Satan's Hollow never really got on with me as a venue. Still, at least these four bands alone left behind hours of excellent recorded music for you to track down
(start with "Siderali" by The Little Explorer :
Manchester are represented only by instrumental trio BURNST, unless anyone can correct me there.
