I was there,me & marshy.16 yrs old and another mate to this day says he spots me on the 'so it goes' vid..sometimes the magic of the hour is beyond remembering 5mins! i know the place was heaving and just fucking pure.No posing,no room..the big doors were attacked in a clash of footwear and it made it how it was-a moment in musical hisory for the hundreds there.i wish i had seen the pistols,my reason for how i am, but fuck candlestick,the ballroom barely had ball-room like the stretford end allways was, i will never forget that night but it went by so fast ,just like punk did.Tony wilson put the best bands in the world on in a club i could see from my front door,and i thank him from the heart.But the elizabethan ballroom is a one off,though i had been more than once.what a night to be 16 in manchester.
