Heads In The Outhouse
The Rudyard

Heads in the Outhouse were formed in about 1978, by Laurence Sweeney and Michael Curley from Stockport.
1980 they were joined by Phil Curley also Stockport, Stephen Ryan from Wythenshaw and Iva from Whitefield. Gigs around Manchester and Stockport at venues including The Gallery, Giatinnos, Rudyard and others. Musically, a mixture of Echo, Cabaret Voltaire, Velvets, Kraftwerk and the like. Briefly managed by an ex-Corrie actor and shared the stage with Karen D'Ashe, Illumination, Ground Zero and loads of others. Packed up in 1983, when most of our gear was stolen from our cavernous practice room in an old Radcliffe mill. Recorded studio tracks include Sentence Passed, Figure it Out and Discontent. The various members now reside in Dorset, North Tyneside, Stockport and Tokyo....apart from Iva - whereabouts unknown.

“I was at just about all these gigs as I lived on Langford Rd at the side of the Rudyard Hotel. and that's where our band Nu Tricx practised we were so loud that The Rudyard gave us a gig I will try and find a flyer an post it.”
