I was involved in a night, The Big Twang, which ran every Tuesday at The Royal Escape Club in Brighton for three months in 1985. The nights were: October 1st: That Petrol Emotion and ...

Re: C86 era gigs and clubs

I remember the Big Twang club in Brighton. The Wedding Present gig was one of our first outside Leeds too, and the first in my home town. Only "Go out and Get 'em, Boy!"

Re: The Football

Building work on the new ground in Moston is about to begin. Then stop again because of the winter. There's an anti-United consensus with most clubs, I'm sure there was one for Liverpool 20 years ago. (Two Hoots is Joey Holts award-winning lager-esque bitter). As regards United, I've severed all fin...

Re: C86 era gigs and clubs

Good stuff, Michael. Just before my time, that, my first indie gigs were in 1987 (going to, not putting on). Just out of curiosity why did the nights come to an end?
