Brannigan's, F Club, Leeds, England
One of The Sisters of Mercy's gigs within the F-Club series in Leeds... basically ...
However, since F-Club organiser John Keenan noted that F-Club events at Brannigans
ran until May 1981 only, it is questionable, whether he really was the promotor here
and whether this was indeed an F-Club event. Anyway, rumour has it that only a dozen
people were at the gig, which makes it ever less likely that J Keenan organised the gig
as part of his F-Club events. There is also no recording from that gig.
The Sisters of Mercy performed with Screaming ab-dabs as support act that night,
who reportedly also created that lovely advert on the right side...
The latter band, which was based in Wakefield, is known for a few gigs around Leeds at the time.
In order to avoid being confused with other bands of a similar name they changed their
to The Flowers of Evil. In 1982, their first (and only known) 7" single was released under the title
and rumour has it that Andrew Eldritch was involved in the first basic production processes.
Any further information is very welcome.
