Difficult to pick just three but todays choice is......

HERE & NOW BAND / MISTY IN ROOTS - Carey Place Youth Centre,Watford 1978
First gig I ever went to and still the most memorable. ( Probably 'cos I was young and sober)

THE FALL - St Albans Civic Hall, 1984 or 85
Seen the Fall more times than I can or care to remember ( first time in '81 ) but this was easily the best.

FOETUS - Town and Country Club, Kentish Town, 1990?
I'd waited years to see good 'ol Uncle Jim live and was blown away by him and his bludgeoning band of ex-Swans.

Other contenders would be Pixies ( always brilliant),
Spiritualized- Albert Hall 97, Bunnymen - Albert Hall '83 / Glasto '86.

A friend recently said to me do ya remember when we went to see Joy Division at the Lyceum ? TBH I don't !!!! Aaargh, was I there or was it a figment of her imagination ? She swears blind that I went.
( I went to the Reading Festival in 79 but don't remember anything about that either and that was for 4 days so guess an evening lost is a possibility).
