Urge at the Zodiac and Climax, The Mix at the Swanswell

December 9th, 2012, 1:12 pm

Working my way through the last few films. Urge at the Zodiac. Urge at the Climax, which had a few shots of The End at the Swanswell Tavern at the start of the film. And yes in these shots I’m struggling to take photographs in the dark, although there is a bit of the early Urge’s energy in the Zodiac shots.

Clique and The Targets, Swanswell Tavern 19 July 1979

Clique and The Targets at the Swanswell Tavern (plus an unknown band Close Rivals a band with a sax player), 19 July 1979. Is shot of someone in the audience holding a copy of Alternative Sounds 5 (I did the cover, but don’t have a copy now). This is another very poor quality film but I think this is the only shots I have of The Targets plus is a nice shot of Clique getting down with their fans.

Le Clique so chic. Clique and friends get down at the Swanswell.

The Clique, Homicide and Wild Boys at the Heath Hotel 19 May 1979. Very poor lighting at the Heath but a few decent shots of Homicide. Is a shot from this gig in Alternative Sounds 5 (see it here).

Last of my 2-tone stuff, The Selecter plus support playing at the Matrix (I think). Film is in bad nick but is a few ok shots in there. If any of you know can confirm the venue, or the date, or the name of the support band please drop a comment.
