One of the features of the Lamplight club (situated above where pizza hut is on wilbraham rd) was the decibelometer which cut your electric off if you went anywhere near loud-we developed a new style that embraced drum solo s a lot .
I think The support band was Dave Prescott -a solo synth act
quite odd in 1979.
I also saw The Knives here who were a Chorlton based reggae
flavoured act with Phil Kirby On Drums ,Stalwart on sax and Tom Barnish on Trombone who all played in Biting Tongues later on.
