Artefact

Sign o' the times.... a miner's benefit.Images of some American knob with a paper bag on his head,brought in by Thatcher to save the country, spring to mind......Oft times would see those young Fall lads on the allnighter 100 back to Wythenshawe..I think Pink Industry were from Liverpool (Pink military,Big in Japan??),anyway the other 2 supports were Manchester based.

Dave Haslam Says –
I set these gigs up ("presented by 'Debris' magazine"; 'Debris' was my fanzine). Less than 2 weeks before the first show a taxi driver was killed by two striking miners who dropped a brick off a bridge onto his taxi. The manager of Jilly's phoned me and told me that the strike was now too controversial and cancelled the hire. I moved the first one to the Tropicana (as Alastair above recalls), and the second one to the Gallery at the bottom of Peter Street. Pink Industry was Jayne Casey's band, which had evolved out of Pink Military.
