About the evening from curbsfan..
I drove The Curbs equipment with Pete Taylor to Kelly's Club on Danzig Street.
Friend from Partington Stony was the Sound Engineer, as shown in some pics.
I met Alan Jowett, interesting guy. Signed a free copy of his poem book for me.
I bought another issue of City Fun from Liz Naylor, the club was fairly busy.
The Curbs, full of energy, belted out some Clash tracks the audience knew well.
Mike Cross cut himself strumming on his strings, blood smeared over his guitar.
