    I was on the College Ball committee in 1980. I paid the manager that night for the band. £2850+ top up of £150.

    1. Thanks David. What a brilliant piece of trivia.

      I remember on the first track, Accidents Will Happen, Bruce Thomas’s bass wasn’t working at all. He was furious. Great bassist, but better when you can hear him.

      I was playing bass in a jazz funk band called Straight No Chaser the same night. That’s how we got in. 🙂
