from the book 'Ten Imaginary Years'
On 5 September, they played Belfast as support to Siouxsie & The Banshees.
Lol: "We drove into Belfast and stopped at a police post to ask directions to the Europa Hotel. I was wearing all black at the time and l leapt out of the car and ran towards this policemen and the next thing I knew I had a gun in my side.
That was just the start! When we arrived at the Europa, there was nothing on the first four floors except a bar and there was this 15 foot high fence all around it. It was horrific, you had to go through all these searches to get in. When we got to the Ulster Hall, we found the crew had all fallen asleep in Liverpool so there was no gear whatsoever, nothing.
So Terry Hooley, who ran Good Vibrations, scouted around all the bands that he knew and we played after The Banshees with all The Outcasts' gear. One of their guitars disappeared as I remember and they weren't very happy about that."
What I really remember about this gig was the waiting and.... waiting... and waiting outside for the gig to start. It was scheduled to start at 8 but was delayed and we didn't get inside until about 10.30 due to someone or some truck missing a ferry. People were tired, bored and angry after standing outside for hours. The RUC were out too, moving groups of people on every so often. The Banshees sensibly went on stage first, letting support group the Cure headline! At the end of their set, I remember Siouxise asking the punters to hang around for the Cure. Too tired & way past last bus time, most people went home. ....
