i have only seen devo once,back in 1978(that was by accident....a load of us
were at this theatra suppost to be viewing a black comady called---loot--as
part of this art course/ in bristol--uk at a place called-- the colsten
hall,the threate we were in was part of c.hall,there was an
inside--ajoining door,we were board of watching loot,so 3 of us snuck
out,after 10 mins,slipping into the room where devo were playing,gig had
started so no one saw us,the gig was very interesting i thought,all the more
so as we were doing something we were not suppost to be doing ;-D))) !!!

unfortunatly i proberly wont be in uk in june,the info was for those who
will be ;-)

also saw stiff little fingers twice at same place----colston hall.. back in
78/79 a mate took ten of us,her parents paid for the lot,it was for her
daughters birthday gift ;-),who was a dear friend of mine,the same process
happened the following year,this mate was addicted to s.l.fs music,it was
kinda amusing as to look at her,she was the most conventional typical girl
type,no one ever imagined that she would be into punk at all,a good example
of--people can never judge a book by its cover ;-D
