Nice to see that bit of Jazz Defector’s footage from Tokyo.....O.K. this Lavolta Lakota flyer...prob circa ’87.I don’t know when the Hulme Labour Club shut down but it was used sporadically for various ventures, including part of John Martin’s Romany City as far as recall;(that man put a curse on me once, didn’t work; not yet anyway.....).I don’t recall seeing bands there, except maybe Dub Sex .Anyway “Indian” Dave (who’d worked in The Roxy Shop in the Underground Market or The Oasis(?),as had Johnny Marr), was the singer in this band, which would account for the band name .I remember them playing with Southern Death Cult at The Elizabethan Rooms in London ,with The Dancing Tarantulas in support and they were good ;don’t know if they ever put out any music though .I know he later played with Peter Hook in Revenge....so there’s a happy ending for ya....Scary I can remember some of this stuff and not remember stuff from yesterday!!Ah well It’ll be happy doolaly in the old folks home with me Walkman and C90 tapes...can’t wait!
