Dislodge, Abdominal Pain, The Closed
23rd November 1979

Ticket for one of the punk nights that were held at Hyde Town Hall. Friends were in both Dislodge and Abdominal Pain but not sure who The Closed were does anyone know who they were?

Latest Discussion

“The Closed were from Ashton they had a lead singer called Lick (I think) his girlfriend was called Louise Booth or Boothie I cannot remember fully but I think she was in the band. The Closed actually hired the Town Hall and got us to play. I was in Abdominal Pain (before you ask I was the good looking one).
The Hall actually got a bit busted up and one of the guys from "The Closed" ended up paying for the damage himself. To my eternal shame I nor anyone else helped him pay off the money and I always made myself scarce whenever he came in the Birch or wherever. I have even forgotten the poor b'stards name. But that's Rock n Roll”

“Hello Abdom

I was that poor b'stard. £600 bloody quid!! Don't worry, I'm not going to send the boys round, just buy me a pint if you're ever in Montreal. The name was Jim, by the way. Are you Paul or Ez (both of you were, of course, dashingly good looking)? On reflection, £600 was a small price to pay for a pretty good anecdote about my wild punk days.”

“JIM JIM of course it was, I am Paul of course, Eric no where near me in the looks department! 600 quid was it, Crikey that even sounds a lot now, never mind 30 years ago. I do hope you had plenty of mileage out of the story 'cause it is a lot of money. I promise to buy you 20 pints the next time I am in Montreal we can drink 10 each and then tell everyone we used to be wild and young! and they will say I think you have wet yourself Grandad”
