FAT SAMS GIGS - 1984

Dundee band Circus Of Hell played Fatties on 18th June 1984. The flyer advertising it as the "Satin 'n' Trash Show".
Underneath is a full page ad from a 1984 Deadbeat mag, the Fat Sams Dance Factory Sunday's list being -
4th March - Perfect Crime
11th March - Bourgie Bourgie
25th March - Reflex
1st April - Swans Way
Not sure if Icicle Works stopped off at Fatties on their Spring Tour that year as it only has their Edinburgh & Glasgow date on it, but I do know the band has played at Fat Sams.
Bourgie's Paul Quinn, although not a Dundonian, used to occasionally socialise in town back then and recall Dundee guitarist Steve Reid teamed up with Paul sometime later, 1990ish.
Thanks to Joe Ogilvie.
