The Rats Tonic for the Troops tour was my first gig. Newcastle City Hall looks like July 2nd 1978 if this is right www.cyberspace7.btinternet.co.uk/pageea.htm .
I still have the vinyl but it doesn't come out much. Gig was ok. The next one was Ian Dury and the Blockheads and that was epic. Blockheads Oi Oi.
I was at that City Hall gig, though not my debut (Slade 1973, also City Hall).
