First name band I went to see was Slade, Lincoln Theatre Royal in April 1978, supported by The Depressions. I was 10 (nearly 11), and my older brother took me despite him not liking Slade. They were awesome. I had to wait until December 1981 for my next proper gig, but what a gig! Christmas on Earth at Leeds Queens Hall. The Damned, The Exploited, UK Subs, Black Flag, Anti-Nowhere League, Chron-Gen, Chelsea, Charge, Vice Squad, amongst others. It was a bus trip from Lincoln, and I went with my best mate.

Ha! We're supporting Chelsea on Saturday! And we've got Exploited and ANL covers in the set! Bridge House, if you're in London.

A long way from London I'm afraid, but I remember seeing a load of your flyers etc being handed out at The Mob gig in Brixton last year.

Ah yes. We do have a lot of merch! Not that I'm touting for business, you understand. It was just the coincidence.
