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 Television [reply]
 
I'm sure this was the night that someone else was also playing at Barrowland....Tapper Zukie kind of springs to mind......and we were in a bit of a dilemma which gig to go to. Thankfully, we chose this one.  Television were magnificent.  Blondie supported, of course, and they were OK, I guess, but Television stole the whole show.  I think it might have been the opening night of that tour and I also think Sounds reviewed it under the header of "The Ice Men Cometh".  And that just about summed it up.  they were so cool.

I saw them the following year at Newcastle City Hall on the Adventure tour and they seemed to have lost it by then, but that night at the Apollo playing all the stuff off Marquee Moon they were magnificent.

Tapper Zukie never played Glasgow. He was booked to play the Locarno/Tiffany's at some point but it was cancelled after less than five advance ticket sales. It certainly wasn't on the weekend Television/Blondie were in town. That weekend The Ramones/Talking Heads played Strathclyde. [reply]
