if ever a band would be
welcome at Friars today, it must be this band and they came 'home' to Friars in
2009. SLF split in 1983 and
reformed five years later. Although the line up has not always been stable
- Burns the only constant, they did feature Jam hero Bruce Foxton for 15
years. Ali McMordie rejoined the band in 2006 (when we saw them and they
were on cracking form as if it was this era all over again) and are still
making people of a certain age very happy in 2012. We were SO pleased they
came back 27 years later in 2009 and sold out Friars yet again.
It was no surprise that the
Hanx album was recorded at Friars given how much they felt about the
split in 1980.
was Mute boss Daniel Miller's alter ego in 1979. Robert Rental (Robert Donnachie) died in 2000.
