Anyone collect ticket stubs?

Got a nice EC Ticket stub from the University of East Anglia 31/10/84 in a little batch of ticket stubs including the Prefab Sprout one I actually wanted. When I say "stub" it's actually the entire ticket and rather nice, little faded. Happy to pass this on gratis to anyone with a good hom...

Re: EC/Imposters play Glastonbury, June 29, 2013

Had a steady stream of interest in the full show, don't be shy if you want it. I can't host it beyond the weekend.

Re: EC/Imposters play Glastonbury, June 29, 2013

Don't take this the wrong way, but I wrote the piece below about the Brighton gig in another forum; I thought the gig lacked intensity and commitment. The spinning wheel really doesn't work for me for a number of reasons, it takes focus away and the show doesn't build. And the venue really didn't he...

Re: EC/Imposters play Glastonbury, June 29, 2013

Anyone wanting the full set in reasonably high res, 832x468 I have a capture from iplayer. It'll probably dropbox. PM me and I'll sort something out. Saw him in Brighton last weekend, and thought it was a dodgy show, just rambled along and was a bit like he was going through the motions for the payc...

Re: Christmas gigs 1983 - Hammersmith Odeon

You'll wait a long time for a new remaster of Swoon in the UK, but all the albums up to Andromeda Heights were issued in the Japanese Minilp format and remastered. They're expensive but the remastering is very worthwhile. Incidentally (and at the risk of drifting absolutely miles off topic), there a...

Re: Christmas gigs 1983 - Hammersmith Odeon

Thanks for the notes and the help. The contrast I'd make between EC and Paddy is that where a lot of Paddy was about front and presentation - he can sell you something on amiable charm and charisma which when you poke into a bit hasn't got all that much substance, where EC is about the confidence th...

Re: Christmas gigs 1983 - Hammersmith Odeon

Thanks for that on the Birmingham gig, which I'll post on my gigs wiki in due course. Yes, it is the same guy writing the book, John Birch, though he's doing a far less rushed job this time and there is a lot of research going on. There's a newsletter at the top of http://psgigs.wikispaces.com which...

Christmas gigs 1983 - Hammersmith Odeon

This is a very very very long shot, but I'm looking for anyone who a) went to any of the Hammersmith Odeon Gigs in late Dec 1984, b) went in for the support band, and c) remembers any of it. The support band being Prefab Sprout. I think they also played a Birmingham gig with EC too, that is also of ...
