U.K. Subs at Dreadnought Rock, Bathgate
U.K. Subs, Cash from Chaos, The Eddies and The Mystery Girls? at The Dreadnought, Bathgate, West Lothian, 23rd June, 2012. My lugs were going 'SHHHHHhhhhhhhhh' after this gig: no wonder I couldn't make out a damn word anyone was saying. Incidentally, pints of Guinness are a mere £3.10 in Bathgate. It's the epicentre of the drinker's universe! Unfortunately, the locals are mostly wider than they are tall, and fairly scary-looking. See also Flickr album.

'The Turkeys' Revenge' at Baldridgeburn Institute, Dunfermline
The Alternative, The Dissidents, Mutual Fear, Heretix B.C. and Why at the Baldridgeburn Institute, Dunfermline, 24th December, 1982. This was fun! I'd been at a Christmas Eve do with my colleagues from the architects' office where I worked, and I arrived at the gig in high spirits. Alcohol was a new and wonderful thing to me then! The venue was packed - every punk from Kincardine to Kirkcaldy seemed to be there - and it was the biggest audience I'd played to so far. For some reason it was decided that The Dissidents should come on stage wearing red noses, and I seem to remember I also wore red-painted welly-boots with cotton wool around the tops. When The Alternative's turn came to go on stage, Rodney was feeling ill and it looked like they wouldn't be able to play, but I had an idea: I knew vaguely how most of their songs went on guitar, and suggested that I take Rodney's place. Unfortunately, as soon as The Alternative started playing, I realised that I was completely blootered and I couldn't remember a single note of any of their songs! Craig, Rice, Dougie, Gogs, Rodney and Murph, I would now like to take this opportunity to apologise! Fortunately, my embarrassment was cut short as after a couple of songs the Fife Constabulary arrived and attempted to stop the gig (possibly due to the horrible noise I was making with Rodney’s guitar), and there were amusing scenes as they tried to force their way into the venue while the audience pressed themselves up against the doors to keep them out. Punk rockers: 1, Polis: 0! See also Flickr album.

The Alternative at Dalgety Bay Community Centre
The Alternative at Dalgety Bay Community Centre, Dalgety Bay, December 1981. I can't remember much about this gig, apart from Russell Wood's music centre being used at full-blast as a makeshift disco. It was probably never the same again! See also Flickr album.

The Alternative at the YMCA, Kirkcaldy
The Alternative at the YMCA, Kirkcaldy, Fife, circa October 1981. See also Flickr album.


The Alternative at Kirkcaldy YMCA, circa October 1981. One of three prints found discarded on the floor of 'The Pad' in Dunfermline, where The Alternative practised. In the photo are Gordon 'Gogs' Smith on bass, Eric 'Rice' Beveridge on vocals, Dougie McHale on guitar, James Murphy on drums and Craig 'Trinity' Nichol on vocals. And I'm not entirely certain, but I think that's probably me on the extreme left of the photo, standing in front of the 'rising sun' backdrop.
