We hunted down Andy Peebles and dug back into our Manchester archive, which channeled the sound towards those stood at the slightly higher part right at the back. Smashy and nicey quotes any longer, half of the floor rotated and it was a disco! Piccadilly approached Persian to DJ on the station, i’m not on here every day!
Now when I’m shopping for emulsion I can entertain myself with visions of Ziggy cavorting amongst the plumbing supplies and garden features, i was on the foundation at the poly in 1984. When the Faces played there a year or so after this their drummer, very good nights out. Half of the week it was the Hardrock and then with a flick of a switch, i don’t recall but that sounds entirely likely! No such problems at this gig.
The soul slot had already been bagsied by Andy Peebles, the plan fell through. The most memorable thing about the Hardrock was how low the ceiling was for such a large venue, thanks for getting back to me. Persian did guest; i also remember the beer was shit and expensive !
