Here’s a newspaper clipping advertising one of the earliest TCS gigs.

This was the first gig where the band played original material, and I’m pretty sure it was Paul’s first gig, maybe he’ll confirm this. Frank on vocals, John and Paul on guitars, Stephen on bass and drummer that night was co-lyricist and founder member Paul Forde.

Setlist that night was as follows: Drunken Chorus / Right Letter Wrong Square / Five and a Half Feet of Deceit / Brown Eyed Girl / Sorry For The Meantime / Lady Is A Tramp

‘Right Letter Wrong Square’ eventually became ‘Ask Davy’ and ‘For The Meantime’ featured on the b-side of the ‘Senses Working Overtime’ 12-inch promo.

‘Cans’ rather than ‘Can’.’Kilwiining’, rather than Kilwinning.


Friday Fact – The Smiths stayed in The Claremont when they played the Magnum in Irvine.

You’d expect the spelling to be correct, but then it is Ayrshire. As for the Smiths staying at the Claremont? Luxury, surely?

D’you have this ad, Colin? I wouldn’t mind a wee copy of it, if that’s any way possible…..

I do! I’ll seek it out and get a copy to you somehow.
