6 ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, Now Is The Time To Forget The Whimpering Child, Become The Warrior, Chippenham Golddiggers, Sunday 19 December 1982
Met up with a few friends at the gig for the first time since they left school. The support act had a cumbersome name but were otherwise unobtrusive and duly ignored. The Bunnymen were however powerful and awesome, Mac seemingly twenty feet tall from my vantage point right at the front, stage centre, with dry ice swathing around the crowd adding to their mystique. Grabbed a set-list - my first ever! - after the titanic encore "Over The Wall" which capped a tremendous set (apparently "B-Funk" on the set list became "The Cutter").
