Brannigan's, F Club, Leeds, England
One of The Sisters of Mercy's gigs within the F-Club series in Leeds... basically ...
However, since F-Club organiser John Keenan noted that F-Club events at Brannigans
ran until May 1981 only, it is questionable, whether he really was the promotor here
and whether this was an F-Club event at all. As far as our information goes, only a dozen
people were at the gig, which makes it even less likely that J Keenan organised the concert
as part of his F-Club events. There is also no recording from that gig.
- Andrew Eldritch - vocals
- Gary Marx - guitars
- Tom Ashton - 2nd guitar
- Craig Adams - bass
- Doktor Avalanche - drums
The Sisters of Mercy had performed with the Screaming ab-dabs as support act that night,
who reportedly also created the lovely advert on the right side...
They were a punk band based in Wakefield and already known for a few gigs around Leeds at
the time. Rumour has it that Andrew Eldritch - during his time as a "drummer" - had joined
the Screaming ab-dabs on drums for a time and was involved in recording some demo track.
However, in order to avoid being confused with other bands of a similar name
the Screaming ab-dabs soon changed their name to The Flowers of Evil. In 1982, their first
(and only known) 7" single was released under the title First Blood. Recordings and production
first basic production processes.
Any further information on this gig and its surroundings is very welcome.
