I went to the Tractor gig, which was being heralded as ' reformed for one night only'. I also remember the extraordinary playing of Tony Crabtree ( with his teeth ) at some point during the evening.
The rest of the flyer gives a fair picture of the other bands playing around Rochdale at the time.

Howard the Duck, bloody great band. I saw them many times at the Royal oak in Littleborough. Roger did me a tape many years ago but the sound faded a bit as cassettes tend to do. I wish I had a cd or digital copy of some of the bands material. Too late to Dance, was one of my favourites.
A coincidence with the email address there as it has been my log on id for a few forums over the past few years.
