Show Notes

The third performance by Deaf Leppard (as they were now known) in their home city of Sheffield. According to the 1987 biography Animal Instinct this show was a free mini indoor festival called 'Local Nites' with electronic band Human League headlining. The band line-up was: Joe Elliott, Rick Savage, Steve Clark, Pete Willis and Tony Kenning.

The venue closed in 1991 and was located on West Street in the city centre now replaced by a block of flats.

The band got their own record label name from a negative media review of the show. They took the phrase 'bludgeon riffola' when they released their 1979 debut EP. See review quote below. They continue to release their music on Bludgeon Riffola Records to this day.

Media Review Record Mirror Magazine Quote - By Chris Westwood

"Deaf Leopard were Heavy Metal as Heavy Metal always was and always will be, Crosses, macho poses, bludgeon riffola that even the Sabs abandoned years ago and - ironically, me thought - the only band to screw the audience for an encore."
