1st February 1978

Emergency at Pips... not sure about the year as I didn't think they were around in 78 but the only other 1st of Feb is 1985 and that seems too late... any help appreciated.

“1978, Joy Division having played there the week before (their first gig as Joy division) in what was the first in a series of gigs for a Wednesday night at Pips, it was held in one of the rooms at the front of the building. We (Emergency) supplied the PA for most of them and I worked the front of house desk.”

“Think that this may be 'Emergency' who became 'Foreign Press' rather than the punk riot city 'Emergency' the time line fits.
Pips hosted weekday punk gigs by The Grout and Joy Division in 78.”

“Yes, he was a friend of Ralph's the bands vocalist, as you probably know he later became an associate of Peter Saville. Trevor also created a number of posters for Emergency & Foreign Press (notably the Electric Circus with Joy Division in support) and Foreign Press sleeves.”
