King Georges Hall springy dance floor up the stairs ?
SA, you got me thinking with that question. It wasn't the Kings Hall at all. It was the return leg at Preston Guildhall where the fracas took place, not sure what month it was; nippy outside though.
Drat those aluminium pans that me Mam used to cook in.
Nearly replied to your earlier post, as wasn`t sure if there was another bad one in Blackburn.
Never been a New Order fan but got a mate from Bolton (Horwich) met him Sept `85, he went to see them with his bird Preston late `85 or early `86, said it was mad. The hall divided and it was Mancs v Scousers. Think he was upstairs.
Your mate's bang on, the place did split in two. I was downstairs (I didn't know it had an upstairs) with me bird at the time a little worse for wear. It's all coming back now...The deal was that I drove there, got hammered and she drove back. This plan was going great until we got back to the car when she realised that she'd forgotten her glasses. What a nightmare 30 mile drive home that was. We figured it was better the two of everything that I saw was better than the fuck all that she could see. So she steered and worked the pedals while I told her which way to go and what traffic was approaching etc.
I always thought is was Blackburn v Preston, but Mancs v Scousers sounds just as feasible. I seem to remember a couple of the casualties outside had strong Lancs accents, but they could well have been caught in the crossfire.
I struggled to remember most of this, but I could instantly tell you what I was wearing on that night.
