UEA Gig Guide - 1983

One of the things I found in my parents' attic, was a list of gigs to be held in the student's union of the University of East Anglia (Norwich Uni)  autumn term 1983.The gigs were held in the Lower Common room, and were typical low-budget, studenty gigs by acts that weren't big enough for the mainstream concert hall venues.  It's a fascinating list.

Q tips
Teardrop Explodes
Clint Eastwood and General Saint
Bauhaus
John Martyn
Damned
Thompson Twins
Killing Joke
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
Stiff Little Fingers
Hawkwind
Diamond Head and Twisted Sister
Blancmange
Talk Talk
Bpw wow wow
Dead Kennedys
Mari Wilson and the Wilsations
Gary Moore
Shakatak
Slade
Gary Glitter

Ticket prices generally range from £2.50 to £3.50, with the Teardrop Explodes being the most expensive at £3.85.

I was going to go the the Slade gig (I'd seen them the yeat before) but Noddy Holder came down with a sore throat and the gig was cancelled. I did get to see Gary Glitter though. I saw Gary Moore a year or so later, by which time he wasn't playing the UEA any more: I had to go to Ipswich to see him at the Gaumont.
