Gigography of Paul Clarke for 2002

Gigography 2002

Getting there with my gigography now, a list of every gig I've been 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 chucked in details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, and a box of old concert tickets and things from Mum and 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 actions during my NME and Popex years and that. Yeah I know it's a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm having fun remembering these things. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned in the tickets now...
