Artefact

Gone To Earth helping out in the community. If you liked good music and cheap food, (let’s face it, who doesn’t.....?) then you were cordially invited to come on down! They were a good band them; folkish/ rockish like The Pogues meets The Waterboys.....which reminds of a particularly “in” and lame joke at the time based loosely on their song “The Whole of The Moon...” something like “I saw The Crescents, you saw the whole of the Hulme....”;....you had to be there...then again I’m sure you’re glad you weren’t....
Again, St. Wilf’s; not your typical venue....

Sheridan Says –
St Wilfrid's \social Club was the venue for many Hulme Bands - notably Fallover 24, ACR, Crispy Ambulance, Dutch Uncle, etc., etc. - loads more but too late to remember tonight. Will trawl through my files for more. Incidentally both me and John Nancollis of "the site" fame still work at St Wilf's - we own the church. Still lost after the three legged pub crawl for the Hulme Carnival. Gone to Earth were a brilliant band who, at one point had Gavin Whelan (Happy Mondays) playing for them, though he was a bugger to find sober.
