I have a memory of it being June 5th. I don't trust my memory much these days but I used to have a mirror with gig tickets stuck to it. Had it for years & that SLF gig was one of them. Pretty sure it was June 5th but willing to be corrected.it would have been around the same time at De Mont
I do remember that by the following year they'd been relegated to playing the Uni as i went to that too.
I was one of those dickheads that invaded the stage btw. Skinny wanker with a full head of hair. I'm neither of those things now sadly (probably still a wanker though)
Happy, fabulous times.
Bands you wanted to see came to your town. No stupid pilgrimages to London, Brum or Manchester. & it cost 3 quid & bus fare. Plus no gig venue barman gave a fiddler's **** how old you were.
I wouldn't be a teenager now if you begged me to be. Priced out of everything & unwelcome everywhere.
