Cheers for clearing that up, im sure you must be right, as im sure people would have remembered a pub or club called "Gum". also my mate said that the stone roses once played at c'est la Vie so they must have had a band night. I bet that was the best 50p ever spent aswellI'm pretty sure the Gum Club wasn't the Sun. If I remember correctly the Gum Club wasn't actually a club but was a night that took place "Upstairs at DJs". This was upstairs at the building next door to the Dun Horse Pub (which is now called Zy Bar I think). I think it later became Never Never Land and had C'est La Vie on the ground floor (or was that in the basement - my memory is failing me now - it's 25 years ago!!). It's been knocked down now. I remember seeing Alien Sex Fiend there although maybe I shouldn't own up to that!
I remember the Smiths playing in Blackburn but didn't go (no idea why!) although I saw them a couple of weeks later at University in Sheffield for the priceley sum of 50p!
