A3 (as I’ve been notably informed) promo for a comedy tour, taking in the Wythenshawe Forum, a venue not often utilised for live bands. The first band I saw there would have been about ’71, not long after it had been opened, and it was Spider Mike King doing a matinee for the kiddies; the first bona fide Rock ‘n Roll band this youngster ever did see. I see from the website he’s still around so on ya big fella! There was always The Impact festival which happened every year and promoted mostly local groups (S.F.W. with John Cooper Clarke guesting, Summer '76 being a particular stand-out); the fiasco with Slaughter which ended in beers and, I believe, the World Premiere of “The Witch that nicked Christmas” by Mike Harding; the stuff of legends if you were about six at the time.
Don’t know if Henry Normal is considered from round these here parts but I'm sure he has a big connection to Manc.ville.
