Artefact

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!!!
