Right... off the top of my head, I've seen the following in Stafford: Stranglers, Boomtown Rats,Buzzcocks, Wire, (New York) Police (yes, with Sting supporting Cherry Vanilla), Ultravox, Rich Kids, Sioxsie and the Banshees (3rd on the bill), The Nips(Shane McGowan), John Cale, Johnny Thunder and The Heartbreakers, Slick(!), The Models, Roger Chapman's Streetwalkers,Deaf School, Suzie Quatro(!),Motorhead, The Cortinas... at The Top Of The World, now Zanzibar. The Dammed, Eddie and The Hot Rods, The Tourists, Little Bob Story, Simple Minds, Toyah, at North Staffs Poly, now Uni. XTC, The Enid, Lloyd Cole,Suburban Studs at the college. Black Sabbath, The Who, David Bowie at Bingley Hall. Now I know my memory ain't what it was, but what an era for the town!! And what do we have now? Nothing, eh? No venue for up and coming bands, no venue for established bands, nothing. And don't say The Grapes, please. Stoke has, W'ton has, we don't. I know I will have missed bands out due to memory failure, and there were countless others that I didn't see for reasons of personal taste ( Earth, Wind and Fire, The Eagles, ABBA, Rolling Stones to name a few). And, of course, there was Deprived at The Riverside, Trash supporting Ultravox.....happy days!! Any memories?
