Saw the cockney rejects at the new osbourne club and it was a scary night- west ham casuals outside the venue clashed with locals with baseball bats we ran all the way to piccadilly bus station to catch the night bus home- just your average manchester night out

That's a really interesting line-up showing the tail end of punk splitting into new wave, oi, ska/reggae, chart pop, stadium rock, goth, mod, indie etc.

Venue later the Thunderdome, was it?

If this is the club I'm thinking of, it was one, if not THE roughest place I've ever been in my life-I'm sure walking through modern-day Kabul would have nowt on a night out at the "New" (WTF did they do to the "Old Osbourne) Osbourne club. It was located in a delapidated shack, nestling in the middle of a primeval council estate. On the night in question, the gig had been cancelled and a small group of us got holed up in the club with a gang of racist thugs-average age 9 years old trying to kick the doors in. It was broad daylight and we had to get a -the indignity of it-police escort back to Piccadilly away from the baying feral urchins. I was glad to get back to the Factory/Russel Club which seemed sedate by comparison.
