I think this was 21/9/85. It also says there was a Fashion Show. I seem to remember it was something to do with bands who were on some sort of Government scheme to pay them to be arty. I think Tony Wilson had something to do with promoting it. We went to see Jazz Defektors but I remember a band swearing a lot so that could have been Happy Mondays.

“I saw the Mondays in 1985 supporting New Order at Macc leisure centre and seem to remember them being pretty raw and edgey. A mate of mine took some photos of us all, i will see if he took any of the band and get him to upload them.”

“Sorry all my ticket stubs and badges etc were put in a biscuit tin and left at my parents when i left home. This was 'mislaid' by my dad when he was clearing out the loft a few years later.I'm going to sort through the photo's in a couple of weeks hopefully.As soon as i can i'll put them on the site.”

“I have some shots of Jazz defeKtors from this gig up here. Inca babies were top that night; ACR seductive in Brazilia kit; My American Wife were a top band (remember thoroughly enjoying them at International and the Boardwalk; and interviewing them for Acrylic Daze). Think I must have arrived too late for the Mondays but they were awkwardly bad at Macc (as suggested above) so wouldn't have been in a hurry to see them again. Oh, how things change!!!”
