Press snippet announcing the gig

Porterhouse, Retford, England

Apart from the announcement on the left and the wonderful pictures new on this page,
there is hardly anything known about this gig...
although we do have reports of someone who was there, saying:

"One gig I do remember really well was at Retford Porterhouse in February 1983.

 It was a small nightclub with two floors. The Sisters I think played upstairs.

 There were only about 30 - 40 people there, and about 10 of them (myself included)

 had travelled down there from Wakefield and Leeds. The 'Locals' were not too pleased

 to have 'Outsiders' in their nightclub! But it was okay, they did not bother us.

 It was a really good gig."

We recommend this lovely blog... for some more interesting facts about this concert.
