Hello Everyone,

 

I wrote a new blog post about the last days of The Blitz Club at The George IV pub in summer 1980.

Enjoy.

I'm sure I saw The Sharp Cuts busking in Northampton town centre in the 80's the day before Northampton Town were at home to United. I can also remember seeing loads of bands at the Limit & pubs round town,

Artery

Vision

Person To Person

Mirror Crack'd

Vendino Pact

to name but 5. The Rock on the Rates gigs were always a good way to see bands cheap. I can remember my careers teacher giving us free tickets for New Order at the Poly. Those were the days.

 

Vision, didn't they hit the charts with Lucifer's Friend?

Absolutely loved that song.

Great song from a great era, but not sure if it ever charted or not?

Lucifers Friend was a brilliant track, I might have to go in the loft and dig that one out.

Here's the video....

 

It didn't chart sadly according to the Guinness Book of British Singles.

Vision...used to think the intro sounded like fade to grey, I didn't realise it was released so long ago.
