Friday 26 September 1980 - Cleopatra's, Huddersfield

Comments: Support from The Exploited. Apparently Rat Scabies insisted on a tribute to John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, who had died the day before, and so 'Rock 'N Roll' was played.

Comments: Advertising for this show stated that all Flashman Society members were invited to be in the audience for this show which was to be recorded live. On production of membership cards, members and up to 2 friends would be admitted to Shepperton Studios. Support from The Ruts. Max Splodge guested... coming on to do '2 Pints of Lager and A Packet of Crisps Please' with The Damned. 'Neat Neat Neat' was stopped during trouble in the crowd and played again in full. For the closing number of 'In A Rut', everyone took to the stage. Note that 'Looking At You' is not included in the above provided set, but appears on the 'Live At Shepperton' recording, so there is obviously a discrepancy somewhere?
