And then he walked along the edge of the Circle

This is the place where we will post your stories about the Green's Playhouse, The Glasgow Apollo and Satelitte City (The Wee Apollo). As it develops we will break the stories up into sections such as Myths, Gigs I missed, Meeting the Bands, Where are they now etc. No story too trivial and we will only edit out bad language!

New Forum structure on Apollomemories soon.

Comments on Stiff Little Fingers [reply]
They were excellent! I think The Wall supported them too. Always good live in those days.
Nowadays the old songs are SO slow its a wonder they  can stay awake!
saw stiff little fingers at the apollo twice. first time was may 1981 and the wall were the support band. this was the "go for it" tour, brilliant show kicking off with  roots ,radicals rockers and reggae, and ending with suspect device. they also played teenage kicks as an enore, after which the drummer kicked his drum set apart and held up a northern ireland football scarf, a great night.
the second time was supposedly their FAREWELL concert and the alarm supported them that night, another great night with all the old favourites and they ended up playing i love you love me love.
another great night.
Inflammable Material!!!! The only way to describe SLF at the Apollo. [reply]
I was at the SLF concert on 10th June 1979 - my ninteenth birthday. A friend and I were in the stalls. I don't remember too much about it, but I remember it was a great gig, and that Jake Burns was in tears at the fantastic reception they got. I remember him saying to the crowd that Glasgow was a similar city to their home of Belfast, this went down well. The crowd were well-behaved, I don't remember any rushing to the front that I saw at a SLF gig at the Capitol in Aberdeen, where a bouncer got his leg broken and seats were damaged. I was only at the Apollo twice, the Who gig two nights previous to SLF was the only other time. I notice that Dire Straits played on the intervening night, my friend and I went to see Simple Minds at Strathclyde Uni instead. What a weekend - those were the days ! [reply]
i was at the 29.09.1978 gig. the only time i ever watched a gig from a box. the appollo was
a massive stage and i remember SLF were all squashed up together in the middle of the stage.
I watched the gig from the circle. Still have the flyer about the band that was left on every seat. One of the best support bands i have ever seen! [reply]
i remember the hall was half full for the alarm and most were just ignoring them,shame, great band. me, stevie farmer(slf nutter, oh, and hearts nuts),george mcvie and david carmichael had just seen the at newcastle city hall the night before, so, round 2 was icing on the cake. deaf for a week. great gigs and signing afterwards, ta lads.
