    The Clash did play in Sunderland in 1985..they were on bit of an impromptu busking tour and ended up in Gollums (Mowbray Hotel)..they were going to play the Bunker on Stockton Road but the venue didn't have a live music licence at the time.

  6. My mates were the ones who took them to Ku Club, apparently. Is that right @Lenzo lad?
     
  7. I wondered how many people would claim to be involved in some way. :lol:

    The Kazbar (sic) was what would become Eclipse, then After Dark. It isn't Dame Dot, though: George Street North.

    Was Destroy in, that night. Yoz n Spen.
     
  12. I was there. Unfortunately I was playing pool in the other room and didn't get to see them. We were there all the time and regularly got let in to see the bands for nowt but had a quick look and didn't fancy them.:oops:
    Still got my membership somewhere.

    Reminds me of the tony wilson quote about the sex pistols lesser free trade hall gig. If everyone who claimed to be there, was there, they’d have filled the GMEX twice over...

    I couldn't make it, I was meeting Michael Jackson at Park Lane bus station as he was playing at Finos that night and needed an escort. The remaining Beatles were all much less hassle a couple of years later. Although George wanted a bacon sandwich in Louis but Paul fancied a pint in The Borough and words were exchanged.

    I was there, walked across from Gollums to The Drum Club talking to Joe & Nick Sheppard on the way, think he was a bit over awed by it all going from The Cortinas & ending up in The Clash, don't think he took it that well when it all imploded, was more than 15 people there as well, was rammed.
