Updates to a few sets of images and a few stray shots.
More images added to the Cure set at Warwick Uni.
Three more images from the start of the Eyeless In Gaza Moonlight Club gig.
Two images of
(I think) The Accused opening for Urge and UK Subs at Digbeth Civic Hall.
A couple of promo shots of (I think) The End – well it has Dave Gedney and Jerome in the lineup.
A couple of shots of Mef in an unknown band at the Zodiac (these shots where at the start of the Machine/Nine Below Zero film).
And finally two shots of what Alan Rider thinks is Clique playing at the Zodiac (update: but apparently according to Chris Norbury of the Clique it isn’t, so mystery band playing at the Zodiac) [ & which now turns out to be The Opinions from Brum – thanks to Loz below for info on the band ]..
If you can add to, confirm or otherwise the correct the info on any of these drop a comment.
I’ve got a final set of a Cov favourite going up next week and thats pretty much all my negs from this time scanned, processed and up online. Not that I plan to stop there.
Possibly the Clique (and looking pretty neat whoever they are), Zodiac, date unknown

Three sets of images, mostly experiments in long exposures.
Urge, long exposures at The Climax – not very good attempts – but at least we all get to see what the seating arrangements were like…
Eyeless In Gaza, Kevin Harrison and Bron Area at The Climax, 3rd April 1980, a very early Eyeless gig and the shot of Kevin Harrisons 20 minute guitar improvisation is one of my best shots (+ used as the basis for the cover artwork of his Inscrutably Obvious album).
Possibly my final film of the 1979-81 scene – Kevin Harrison doing a solo set at the General Wolfe for which I provided a 2 projector slideshow.

Nice set of The Fall playing in London at North London Poly, November 21st, 1980. Don’t know if any of these shots appeared in Alternative Sounds but I would certainly have used the fanzine to blag my way into the gig. Is a single shot of the Au Pairs who I vaguely remember chatting to.
And thanks to the marvelous The Fall online website where I got details of the gig – there also a set of photos from the gig and I think the photographer is in one of my pictures.

Squad playing at Tiffanys with Gus Chambers looking pretty neat in a suit. Not sure if this is a support slot (possibly Upstarts gig?).
Gus Chambers, Squad, Tiffanys
