No idea about dates of some of the other gigs I can remember:

  • Transparent Paper Company, Bury - "wot a stinker"
  • Top Kat Club, Keswick
  • Gretna Hotel, Carlisle
  • Cosmo Club, Carlisle
  • Reeces Ballroom, Liverpool
  • Wigan Rugby Club
  • La Scala, Runcorn
  • Tow Barr Inn, Egremont - so many times.
  • Big Apple, Farnsworth
  • All those seemingly endless gigs in Stoke and Runcorn and Tyldesley and Atherton that have melted into the past
  • The Place, Hanley
  • Bobbies, Longsight
  • All those long drives from Carlisle - the driving skills of Phil not really appreciated then but are now - we survived those long drives and got through the snow!
  • Wrexham Memorial Hall
  • Top Ten Club, Belle Vue
  • New Century Hall
  • The Monday nights in the Men's Sauna clubs after a gig at Quaintways, Chester. We never knew they were gay hangouts! We must have been a bigger draw there than in Chester!
  • All the Browns/Uncle Tom's gigs!
  • Barrow Public Hall
  • Coatham Bowl, Redcar - told it was a teeny-bopper club and we turned up to the centre of the North-East heavy scene in our white wrangler jackets and black trusers with a red stripe..
  • Bamboo Club, Stockport
  • Lafayette, Wolverhampton
