Artefact

The Images
Photograph
1980
This is from a series of photos I found from a tour of Town Hall gigs across Manchester. The Hyde one (this photo) ended in a riot and Paul Kearslake (Drums) ended up jumping off stage and wading in!

Hee Hee Hee !!! we were so retro we even ended up with Scouse accents and turned the colour button down on the telly so everything looked 'proper' . Toptastic times most indeedy
mat Says –

kippers Says –
I went to this gig and remember Paul jumping offstage. The Images had quite a loyal fan base who would follow the group around the Manchester music circuit but the only trouble was that the 'locals' (yokels ?) didn't take too kindly to boys with straight leg trousers being in their town and often used to provide a reception committee to explain their point.Hyde was one of these places along with Dukinfield , Stalybridge and Montgomery , Alabama
