I'm sure I've told this one before...
Late 80s in a Midlands city, an evening of beer and bands beckoned.
During the support band, for reasons unknown to this day, I find myself trading blows with another gig goer. It was all over in seconds and neither of us seemed that hurt so I return to the bar with my mates.

A short time later we are accosted by my erstwhile opponent and his 8 or so entourage, demanding retribution and a proper punch up ‘outside’ where we would not be interrupted by bouncers or other spoil sports.

We numbered a mere 5 so it was likely we would come off second best even with the skills of Mad Pete, our resident Geordie nutter. It was he who announced “Right then, let’s go. After you poofs” and so we traipsed after the gang of them to the front door where the bouncers held it open, seeming to know what we were up to and not caring, so long as it happened on the pavement and not in the hall.

Just as the last of them stepped outside the venue, Pete swung round and marched us back to the bar, leaving them on the wrong side of the door and subject to the ‘No re-entry after 11’ rule. We stayed to watch the headliners (I think it was The Fall) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Come chucking out time there was no reception party waiting for us as being in Nottingham, it had pissed down all night and no one is worth waiting for that much.

Rock City?
Saw the Fall there in the late 80's.

My mate Dolly was infatuated with them and followed Mark E. and Mrs. Smith back towards their hotel. At one point in the jovial conversation Dolly casually mentioned that on one song it sounded like they were using a backing track. Mr Smith stopped suddenly, straightened up to his full height and snarled "Backing tracks? Fook off".
Needless to say we didn't walk any further with them.

Either Rock City or the Poly
Can't remember but if the bouncers were scary, it was Rock City

Seem to remember when we saw them it was midweek but there was a lot of elbowing at the front of the stage and some a-hole just slamming into people to try and provoke them.

Best gig based violence?
New Model Army were always up there - crusty clog wearers forming circles so their 'women' could dance in the middle

If you don't get clogged, always the chance of a Bible in the face.
Bunch of wankers.

Didn't their followers call themselves 'the cattle'?
Whatever they called themselves, they were a bunch of twats.
