As it happens Sham never turned up that night. It's a pretty hazy memory for me but I think Eater might have been on the bill as well. I was dreadfully pissed and we were all over the place. The picture is a later gig with the real line-up. Cheers, Nick Tesco

I did not know that Sham 69 stiffed everyone that night. I know the picture is not from that performance but it was the earliest I had access to.

Thanks Nick. Great to hear from you. What are you up to nowadays?
