Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
Getting back to the Casino Rock night, I remember a few more names including Nutz and Trapeze, both good enough to inspire me to buy their albums. Edgar Broughton Band were terrible so I didn't bother pursuing their career. Before, in between and after bands, Mick Rawston provided the music on his decks at the corner of the stage. The problem with this in some instances was if a large group of people were head-banging on the suspended flexible dance floor… which caused the records to jump. He would furiously try to deter people from ‘dancing’.
Mick was often at Bob Flight’s flat at Marsh Green. Bob reminded me of Cat Stevens with his long curly black hair. I worked with him for a while at the Parks Department and we had some good times. Like me, he was a half decent artist and interested in the art world, so the art and music kept us in dialogue for hours. None of us inspiring artists ever made anything of it… apart from Bryan Talbot, who is now world famous!
