UFO 14th November 1985

I have to be honest, I only have vague recollections of this gig. I was 19 years old and had already poured a few beers down my throat before getting to the venue. I do remember one thing and that was that I wasn't that impressed with them "live" at all. The guitarist seemed to be more intent on showing off than playing. Don't get me wrong, he was very talented and very good but the problem was he knew it and it had gone to his head. I remember being relieved when it was all over and we exited the concert hall and fell into the nearest pub which was then followed by the obligatory greasy meal in a late night diner near Brighton seafront.
