Sounds like a great evening & something special. Glad you all enjoyed it. Poor sound quality? ..... that's punk rock innit?  ;)

Interesting what Fred said about full & not so full venues though.

That's why even seated venues that are "dives" have cloth padding to help absorb the sound. At Symphony Hall, as there are so many orchestral performances, the undersides of the tip-up seats were all very highly polished to reflect the sound in the quieter perfomances.

Judging from the Buzzcocks gig I saw a few years ago and what their support band then told me, it was their incompetent soundman.  :(
If it's still the same guy, I would blame it on him.  ::)

Nah, I've seen them loads of times and the sound was fine. I've also been to many gigs at Brixton where the sound was fine. it was the worst sound I've heard at a Buzzcocks gig ever.

I've just caught up with this lovely tribute to Pete Shelley. It starts at 2.39.00 and features original drummer John Maher:
