Gigography of Paul Clarke for 1990

Gigography 1990

Getting there with Paul's gig history now, all the gigs I remember going to, 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, and a box of old concert tickets + stuff from Mum + Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding festival lineups, they'll probably stay missing, it's so hard to remember. There's a lot missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME and Popex years and that. Yeah I know it's a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering these things. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned the tickets now...
