“Abdom - I remember using something similar at school where I wrote on a piece of paper with a carbon sheet underneath which was facing the back of the paper so left an imprint of what I'd written on the back. This was then used on a roller to make half a dozen copies”

“@amberlight - there was a bar, it was downstairs, should have looked harder! I know this because as the band were playing the vibrations from the audience jumping up and down caused ceiling tiles to fall off in the bar downstairs and people to run for their lives! I knew nothing about this till my friend (who was the social secretary) told me about it afterwards. I'd watched the band from the organ pit at the front of the stage (acting as crap security!) and he had considered coming to rescue me!”

“I was at that Fall gig - I used to love the old Poly union, wish I had gone more often. Speaking as someone who has humped equipment in and out of venues for most of his life I could never understand why they got rid of a venue that you could literally back a van up to the stage for one where you had to carry the equipment up a couple of flights of stairs!”

“The thing I remember about this gig was there was an awful buzz on the PA system caused by the lights and Hooky getting more and more annoyed about as they night went on eventually telling them to leave the fucking lights alone!

I also seem to recall reading somewhere that he thought it was the worst gig they'd ever done!”

“It was - I was in the organ pit because the university always insisted we look after it and besides it was a great place to watch the gig from! The Ents manager Robin was so concerned about how much the floor was bouncing he even considered coming on stage to get me out of there! The tiles were falling off the ceiling in the lower hall and people were running out of the bar!

The reason U2 played the University when they could probably have played the Apollo was because the promoter owed us one! We were due to have U2 play in the smaller Disco Area with the Radio 1 Roadshow the previous term but they pulled out at the last minute because they wanted to stay in America a bit longer - we ended up with the Polecats instead!

On the next tour they did play at the Apollo and luckily for me and my mate Brian they were supported by the Alarm who we'd met at a gig at the Uni so we went down there on the afternoon of the gig and hung about till the band put us on the guest list!! U2 were rubbish that night - I never saw them again!

There's also an outside chance I made that flyer!”
