Were they any good?
I remember as a 16 yr old waiting for an hour outside Bham Odeon after a PIL concert.
Eventually some bloke popped his head out of the stage door with a “message from John”.
He said we should all F Off because he was having a curry and hadn’t we got homes to go to. :-)

They were great!! More mature, obviously, but full of energy.
