Nightmares in Wax Everyman Gig, March 1980.
Pete Burns and I in Nightmares in Wax (later Dead or Alive) playing in the Everyman Theatre Basement in Liverpool.
The above photo was taken during my first Liverpool gig with Nightmares in Wax, back in 1980. The gig gets a mention in Bombed Out! because, amusingly, it was reviewed by Melody Maker.
I repeat some of the review in the book, because it was relevant to one of the themes of my time in both Nightmares in Wax and earlier, when I’d played bass for 9 months with Liverpool band Pink Military Stand Alone.
