Fantastic line-up at the Ardri in Hulme on Thursday 27th March 1980; the Pop Group, manicured Noise, and Patrik Fitzgerald. The Ardri was 85 Coupland Street, Hulme, M15 6HN, noe demolished to make way for the Science Park. Dozens of good gigs there; later in the 1980s Sonic Youth played there, and in 1991 Fugazi played. It was also home to the Herbal Tea Party in the rave era. Mostly a very Irish club though, that was its main business, but cheap to hire midweek so was relatively popular with promoters looking for 400/500 capacity club near the students/Hulme etc. Oh, and Orbital played there too! 1994, on a Tuesday night.
