I remember going to this gig. Other bands on the bill were The Distractions, Spizz Oil / Energy ( actually I don't think they turned up ) and John the Postman who had a pint thrown over him on stage ( maybe people wanted something different from Louie ,Louie )
I went to this gig.Spizz definately wasn't there,I remember The Distractions and I think another band called the Mechanics. Anti Nazi League benefit. The Fall's first Peel session had only gone out the night before so it was all very exciting! The venue was my local town hall which had only ever previously been occupied by a horrendous 'disco' at night so this was a first and the last time I ever went! I think one of if not the first gig with Marc Riley?
Tuesday nights at 8.00 was the disco night ! Went quite often , although I don’t remember the music being particularly good and for some reason the DJ regularly played ‘ Warm Leatherette ‘ by Robert Rental and the Normal. Marc Reilly actually went to our school ( St Greg’s Ardwick ) along with Craig Scanlon who I think might have also played that night.
