Many thanks Vol 10. I had lost 46664, a song I love.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Thanks so much for posting the Trenton show. It comes with a little backstory for me. I won tickets to the show via a local radio station & I was incredibly excited as you might imagine. While on the phone giving them my info, they asked my age & at that time I was still 15 & they informed me that I was too young to enter so they had to give the tix to someone else. I was gutted. For many years I thought I had missed my only chance at seeing the original lineup (I saw BAD II a number of times) but thankfully the boys decided to give it another go 😊

Oh, I always thought Sheffield Leadmill was the first gig!
So does Mick.

So is that a conformation from Mick or still guesswork?

It would make sense - the Clash's first gig was in Sheffield.....

I was telling Mick that there was a pretty good tape of Sheffield, and he responded that was the first BAD gig. I told him there was some discussion of whether Glasgow was earlier. He said, well then, those were the two first two, that trip North. However, his first thought without prodding was that Sheffield was first, and he has a damn good memory.

That's good enough for me. Cheers Teddy.

According to Mike Peters...
October 6th 1984 The Alarm Nightmoves, Glasgow (Opening act Big Audio Dynamite)

“I got a phone call from Ian Flooks who was the main agent at Wasted Talent. He asked if The Alarm would take an opening act of his choosing for the dates in Glasgow and Sheffield. “No problem”, I said not knowing who the band was going to be. I was on the stage sound checking with The Alarm, when in walked Mick Jones from The Clash along with Don Letts. I was absolutely stunned. I couldn’t believe that Big Audio Dynamite was Mick Jones’ new band, and that they were going to make their first ever ‘live’ appearance opening for The Alarm. I had met Mick Jones a few times at the pub on Alexander Street (next door to Wasted Talent at number 28), and even went back to his house one night (with Mike Scott from The Waterboys). Mick was playing us this new music of his with audio samples from films and he had banks of video tape recorders going. It was pretty surreal and as it turned out, way ahead of it’s time. Mick Jones was very down to earth as was Don Letts, and I watched them play from the side of the stage and was so impressed. All the video technology was now totally integrated into the sound of a great rock band. They played songs which I would later recognise on the first BAD album” – Mike Peters

Brilliant, cheers Es.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Anyone able to get this one off the Dime? It is a show we already have, the 1018 Club show but from what I can tell it's an alt audience source, including a full 1999. The version Esmark has on here cuts off after 2 and a half minutes. http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-deta ... ?id=638687

Did not know this one existed, trying to download but Mega says file no longer available. If someone could post a working link for this i'd be very grateful. Thanks.
