My pleasure. Tomorrow's post will attempt to drum up some support for your cause.

By 'eck I enjoyed that: it was the musical equivalent of a big walk on a wind-blasted headland, thank you x

I saw them on that tour at the Lyceum. They opened with Safe European Home and Clash City Rockers but the rest as I remember was pretty much as it is in these videos.

I'm jealous Lee.

From what I've discovered the gig had to be stopped early on due to some fisticuffs in the crowd, so they probably opened up with those two they just didn't get filmed.

Support was The Nips (Shane McGowan!), Mikey Dread, and Joe Ely.

Got your money's worth in them days.
