Show Notes

The first show by the band in this city. A show rescheduled from the 23rd. The band were reportedly paid 75 pounds for this show.

The band included three songs not played at the June 5th Crookes show - 'Hello America', 'Rock Brigade' and 'Satellite'. It's possible these were written or finished off during June. The audience recording was widely believed to be the first recording of a Lep show until late 2005 when a recording of the first gig at Westfield School surfaced (privately owned and not circulated). Technically this is still the first Lep show available as the other has not been traded among fans.
