1993 Gigography of Paul Clarke

Gigography 1993

Getting there with my gigography now, all the gigs I remember going to, from '87 up to about now. An obvious progression from my Best Gigs Ever post. Well that's the theory, so there's A LOT missing. I have chucked in details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, + a box of old concert tickets + stuff from Mum + Dad's loft. Also got a bundle 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 ACTION during my NME + Popex years + that. Yeah I know it's very geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun remembering this stuff. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned in the tickets now...
