Detailed annotated flyer for Gigs live night at the Derby Hall Bury, White Lightnin' and Dr Filth were Manchester bands, not sure about the others as not listed on this site.

There was a connection between the two bands although they were musically very different:
Mark Coley had played bass in White Lightnin' and The Renegades before Dr Filth,

Dave Holmes (now Dr Dave Holmes) had played guitar in the Renegades before Dr Filth

Dave Machin, who had drummed in The Renegades later played in the Rhythmaires with most of White Lightnin'

other bands unknown to me, but if you have details add them on to the list and drop me a line so I can update this

Wasn't the Interchange Theatre Project something put together in the back room of The George and included the guy who plays Zac Dingle in emmerdale and Fiona Allen (amongst others)?
Not musical, just culture!

This was 1981 Phil (I've just verified on one of those 'perpetual calendar' thangs). Thought so as I think it was around Sept 82 when we'd become The Rhythmaires.
Dr Filth's lead guitarist Paul 'Tot' Thomas was also ex-Renegades. Dr Filth's series of 'dep' drummers included Alex Sidebottom of The Distractions and John Maher of The Buzzcocks.
Steve Halliwell (aka Zak Dingle) did indeed write and direct plays (in fact I had a part in one!) at the Derby Hall though I think the 'Interchange' project was a different (more political?) troupe.

Thanks Stu, I've corrected it, that means I was all of 15 years old at the time then
