Dunelm House, Durham: 9th February, 1980

dunhelm“Confusion over the contract meant that the main attraction failed to supply a support act. This however was remedied at short notice by enlisting the talents of local band “Prefab Sprout” only five hours before the gig. They received a mixed reaction, to put it mildly, with the one, or was it two, students in the audience tapping their feet to the bouncy rhythms, while a hardcore of punks at the front showed their appreciation in terms of saliva and mindless abuse.”
