The "Be Stiff Tour" stopped off in Dundee to play at the University on 24th October 1978. Stopped off - an appropriate term because, being Stiff Records, they went about things just a wee bit differently from your average record company, and on this occasion the novelty was to have 5 of their top acts all on the one show, touring the UK together, by train!
The 5 artists that hopped off at the station to be showcased were - Lene Lovich - Jona Lewie - Mickey Jupp - Rachel Sweet and Wreckless Eric.
I have 4 top notch photos from the Dundee University gig, taken by Mike Gallacher, that I will be putting up on view.
Starting with the image above of Jona Lewie, who most of you will know from his many appearances on Top of The Pops, especially at Xmas time!
Below is a short film clip of the Stiff train setting off at the start of the tour, including a word from Jona himself.
