Information

Not really about Morrissey, definitely not about The Smiths, David Nolan details the accounts of the 4th June 1976, at Manchesters Lesser Free Trade Hall. A gig that so many swear to have attended but only 50 did, Morrissey famously being one, carrying a copy of The New York Dolls first album, he had learned of the event from the NME, and had come to witness the new band being managed by The New York Dolls ex manager Malcolm Mcclaren. The Sex Pistols supported by Buzzcocks withSlaughter And The Dogs also on the bill, this was supposedly the gig that heralded change in the Manchester music scene. The list of web sites to the end of the book includes a very astute observation of this very site.
