Artefact

A gig list for the International 1 including Something Shady's Women's Aid concert. Other bands and artists include Deborah Harry and the then-ubiquitous Toss The Feathers.

Guitarist Heather Greenbank writes:

we played twice at the international 1 - once was for international women's day & the club was packed - excellent atmosphere... but the most memorable time was one winter when out drummer got snowed in on snake-pass & couldn't make the gig - we were waiting for her to arrive so we could go onstage and she rang to say she couldn't make it. We panicked & eventually went on stage & asked the audience if there was a drummer in the house. A woman called Flo was puched to the front by her mates & we got her up on the stage. I quickly ran through the beats with her while the vocalists told some jokes & off we went. Flo was brilliant & the performance was such a buzz because we were winging it & the audience were right behind us.
Flo saved the day!
