1989 Gigography of Paul Clarke

Gigography 1989

Getting there with my gigography now, a list of every gig I was at, from 1987 up to about now. It's a natural progression from my Best Gigs Ever post. Well that's the theory, but there's A LOT missing. I have added details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, + a box of old concert tickets + things from Mum + Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding bands seen at festivals, they'll probably stay missing, it's so hard to remember. There's a stack missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME + Popex years + that. Yeah I know very geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun reminiscing about these stuff. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned the tickets now...
