Artefact

My first ever gig. It was held at this venue which doubled up as a cinema too. For a few years it held quite a few punk gigs, as well as shows by Magnum and Fat Larry as I recall. £2.50, those were the days! I got it signed when the band played at the Academy 1 about 2 years ago. They nearly all wear wigs now!!

I remember Hanoi Rocks being supported by a local band from Macc, Pet Hate who used to be Silverwing, or was it the other way round.Also saw the Damned on the Strawberries tour- nuns as backing singers!!
