1. Lancaster City Football Club 1st June 1978
The first gig. It was an Anti-Nazi League benefit supporting aged hippies China Street. Our fee was £10.00.
2. Imperial Ballroom, Blackpool June and July 1979
Our first Imperial gig, playing for the Blackpool Sixth Form College Dance. The second Imperial concert was a Year of the Child benefit and we asked Joy Division, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Glass Torpedoes and Final Solution to play.
3. Old Library, Poulton le Fylde Summer 1978
This venue was hired by us several times from the Council. It was about the size of your average front room. The last time we were there skinhead skirmishers turned up and put the windows through. The Council banned us after that.
4. Russell Club, Manchester Spring 1979
