The below photos were taken in the dining hall of the Newcastle Polytechnic as part of the 'Bedrock Festival' that took place on Friday 1st July 1977. They were playing support to other local act 'Penetration. Both bands were actually booked to play the University Theatre where all the other 14 bands were performing over the three day festival but the Theatre pulled the plug on all Punk / New Wave acts at the last minute, hence them playing in the dining hall of the University. (See newspaper cutting below)










The above gig review appeared in 'Sounds' on Saturday 16th July 1977.
