As the 'first record I bought' thread has moved to discussing bands, I think this deserves a thread of its own. The first band I ever saw was a military band Beating the Retreat from Aden, but I was so young I don't know which band it was. The first 'pop' band I saw was Lindisfarne at the ABC Peterborough. They weren't very good, but were well past their prime, it being the late seventies or maybe even 1980. I'm sure arrsers can do better. I bet ofah was at Jericho for Joshua's trumpet concerto!!!!
