Went along last night to see Wire at the wonderful Brudenell Social Club. Magic Rock’s “Rapture” ale adding a nice accompaniment to the evenings proceedings.
I’m was already familiar with Ed’s name due to him being the tour manager of the Stranglers when they did their U.S tour in 78’ and Ed’s eventual move to manager in 1980-82. So when I heard he’d written a book I thought I’d take a look. I noticed it was less than a fiver on Amazon so I didn’t think twice about the purchase.
Was looking forward to this especially after the previous week’s amazing Sheffield gig.
I need to check the Buzzcocks anthology book cos I swear the last time I was at the Leadmill was back in 1996 when Buzzcocks was touring their “All Set” album. But the venue seems different in appearance but then almost 20 years have past.
How many times have I seen this band now? First gig back in 1990 with original singer Hugh Cornwell and now on their 40th year I’m seeing them back at Leeds. This is fast becoming an annual event now. Must be the 6th year they’ve played here in March?
