Live archives 1985 - 1989
it strikes me just how intrusive the game noises are into the recording.
After research, I can find no evidence of a club or music event called "Wig Out" related to the 1980s. However, I did find photo evidence that J. Jesse Garon and the Desperadoes played at the same "Leeds Wig Out" venue as Spacemen 3, supposedly only two nights later. Furthermore, back-searching the J. Jesse Garon show, I found it listed on SongKicks as having actually taken place at Adam & Eve's music venue, which is conveniently located in Leeds. In conclusion, I do not know where "Wig Out" comes from or how it's exactly related to this show, but I believe the true venue of this show to be Adam & Eve's, in Leeds.
It was a night put on at Adam and Eve's called the Wig Out Club, so it was both, the Wig Out Club put the gig on, I was at this gig and the support band was The Perfect Disaster. It was good from what I remember. I think I have the ticket for it somewhere still, if I find it I'll send it to the blog. Not heard the recording but from the above comment for the game noises, the place wasn't that big, the pool tables were just behind where they probably put the sounddesk. The main use of the place was as a heavy metal club at that time, with the occasional other alternative night put on.
Thanks Webster. That was very helpful. That helps clear things up in multiple locations now. A scan of the gig ticket would be excellent, if you could manage it! No worries, otherwise.
