HEY! ELASTICA - DANCE FACTORY - 1982

Here's a nice close-up shot of Hey! Elastica playing at Dundee's Dance Factory in 1982.
The venue for the Dance Factory back then was Teazers, at the Royal Hotel in Union Street.
Under the photo is an article from Deadbeat fanzine detailing their debut single which had just been released at the time - and although it mentions the gig date as being the 15th, the gig actually took place on the 14th October '82.
Thanks to Al McEwan.

  2. I was the drummer in the band, which was a life-time & a half ago. I seem to remember a fight breaking out at the Tayside Bar, or maybe that was in the dressing room (sic) after the gig.

  3. If anyone knows how I can get in touch with Giles or even what her surname was/is I would be soooo grateful. Just want to drop her a line to say thank you.
