    Default Manchester Free Trade Hall

    In the late seventies there was a mega punk concert in the MFTH

    Does anyone remember this or even went there?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    NO....but i was a regular at the MFTH in the 70s ,i am more of a metal fan than punk and used to watch all those great 70s rock bands at mfth and the apollo theatre, that was when concerts were an affordable leisure activity believe it or not i still have stubs for 3 concerts by ac/dc,quo,priest,and many more,now of course your looking at 60 or more.

    I have read Alan Clayson's book I Swear I Was There, based on the event, and it is a good read for punk fans (and music fans in general)
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!
