Artefact

The mighty Eek-a-Mouse at the Russell.Went to see him at Cleopatra's in Huddersfield (where he dressed up like a convict), because he wasn't booked to play Manchester and we had to wait at the train station after the gig till the following morning to get home.Wasn't much fun but he was worth it.Then a couple of weeks later he got booked to play at The University Union on Oxford Road, (this time dressed like one of the three musketeers!) so at least I got to see him twice.Talisman had a song "Living in a Dole Age" which used to get played in clubs a bit.It was odd that reggae acts would often play Leeds,Nottingham,Sheffield,Birmingham but not Manchester.Having gone to see gigs in some of these towns, the crowds often seemed a bit more responsive.Towards the end of the 80's that changed though and reggae gigs in Manchester would go off!
