Hinton St George - 15th March 1980

Directly linked to this post and related discussions thanks to Lurch for stirring up the memories - and Kek and Dom for confusing history (best way to view it really)... that resulted in all those present at the time proving just how fucked our brain cells actually are these days - by not even remembering if any of us were there let alone played the damn gig - I present to ye all - scanned proof that yes - Spare Cells / The Box Combo - and this one even suprised the pants off of me - Fractured Entertainment (yes oh yes I hear you shriek) - all played at that mecca of Somerset punk/post-punk and other assorted genres too few and embarrasing to recall (and please lets not start on the hair-cuts) - HINTON VILLAGE HALL - trust me - if you missed out on this stuff back in the day - ha - bleedin ha !!

Holy Fucking Shit. Indeed, I believe that poster was one of my creations.
The ghosting on the lettering was actually a printing fault, but it worked out well..
All I can say, again, is Holy fucking Shit.

It was the Woodstock if the 1980 Somerset punk scene, innit? In the future, when academic tomes are written on this subject, we can say "I was there"!

sure is frightening the things that are lurking in cupboards around here !! 'Woodstock of the Somerset Punk Scene' - damn there is a good title for a 7 inch if I ever heard one !!

Next post coming up - an indepth feature on Pale Red Competitor - bet ya can't wait to relive that ??

PAUL: "We sat around and thought of how we could polish up our stage presence and somebody mentioned using dummies on stage - so we went out and bought some." - Feeding the Fish No.14

QUESTION : Which ones were the dummies - A/Steve, B/Dick, C/Collis D/The whole dang lot !!

BONUS QUESTION: Who is on the right hand side of the cover shot of said Feeding the Fish mag ?
