Hi, this is my first post so be gentle :-) I first saw Be Bop Deluxe at a working mens club in Askern near Doncaster round about 1973. As I recall there were only about half a dozen people there. I even bought a copy of Teenage Archangel on the Smile label. I think the club was called Mather Lane.
Does anyone have a list of gig dates, in particular for this one?
That could be, I know it wasn’t the miners welfare and that I bought teenage archangel at the gig but that’s all I remember. Dad wasn’t happy as I was under age. I remember a bloke stood there with a look of David Bowie and a big guitar. They were great 😀
Mather Lane club is now a Builders merchants on the a19 . Maybe it was owned by the miners welfare .
Wow. That is quite a thing, to be at the first BBD gig. Not many people can say that! Welcome to the forum, keefwoodcock!
Think I may have answered my own question here:
It was actually Mather Lane Social Club not the miners welfare
Can't believe I was at the first one
