  1. Not entirely original to say, but I went to this concert – with my girlfriend and later wife. What a big influence the Steve McQueen album (LP as it was then and still is in the back bedroom somewhere) was and still is to a sadly smaller but inevitable degree I guess. Seems such a long time ago – hang on matey, it is pushing 30 years ago over half my life time. But still raises a moist eye when the SM corkers are played. Thank you Mr McAloon.

    Salford University Students Union must have had some pull and foresight in those days – saw U2 and The Beat there too. My mate was really miffed when The Beat did ‘Stand Down Margaret’ and he had gone to the bar for a pint and missed it.

    Thanks to whoever posted this recording – it’s a miracle it was recorded so well back then.

    1. Hi Ian .. I also saw the Beat there but can you remember when it was ? It’s never listed on their gigography list?
