The Carlisle Hastings February/March 1979

supplied by Ken Copsey

Ken Copsey… Seem to remember there was some discussion about the billing of the Piranhas gig at the Carlisle. They were definitely top of the bill. Teenbeats were tagged on to get in the local mods.

John Gale… Went to the all those mate,,,, the only band not worth watching on the those bills were the Teenbeats,,,, they were crap 🤣🤣🤣. Seriously, mate all good bands. The Chicane night ended up a bit messy i recall , less said about that the better 😂. The Piranha gigs were particularly good as they attracted a mixed crowd , I remember the one where Nicky and the Dots supported l them too, a certain mate of mine went flying down the stairs with his broken leg. Think it was that one anyway 😂. Good Times mate . What I would give for a night like that tonight ?

Steve Sampson… Was that the night Kev O fell down the stairs ! 🤣… one of those at the Carlisle I lost my hearing for days after being pushed into the speaker stack while pogoing

Ken Copsey…Unless my memory fails me the place was completely packed that night from the front of the stage to about two thirds back. I can imagine it would have been quite easy to end up wedged against the PA.┬áThis was my first gig with the Teenbeats and I was still an innocent 16 year old.
