Fan memories.
In the early 80s, I used to work in an oil refinery where any battery devices were banned. However, a tiny radio hidden in a book allowed me to listen to John Peel on night shifts, when I first heard the boys and their music, hooked for life.A year or so later, I found out that the band would be playing at a nearby venue, the Afan Lido in port Talbot, a mix of sport centre and swimming pool. Met all my expectations and I am still a fan 40 years on. Looking forward to the next chapter – Mike Doyle
