Just reading again what was served up in place of Joy Division that night. With hindsight of course it is all perfectly understandable but I have to say, and I am no advocate of violence, if I had been a paying punter on the night I would have wanted to smash the place up as well.

Was anyone on here at the gig?

Did you mean this with "reading"?

Wally mentioned to me a couple of years ago trouble was brewing even before the gig - Minny Pops were in a cafe near the venue and he said there were people there who did not make them welcome. He hinted these were some of the people who were let in - and who caused the riot.

dmxi. No it was prompted by a tweet I saw.
Lee. Interesting (very interesting) ! So, maybe the JD lite performance was not the root cause then or at worst provided a convenient excuse for a scrap?

Certainly sounds like there was a good likelihood of it kicking off, regardless of the JD lite performance.

Didn’t Hooky once say something along the lines of ‘As a favour, Rob had let in a number of ticketless fans to that gig.... but then those same fans were the ones who kicked off and caused the trouble’ ?

Great clip this. Surely more photos were taken pre riot and what chance a recording? Slim I guess after all this time.

Really interesting to watch, thank you for putting that up.

Tony Wilson is not far from the truth as there seems to be more interest in the Bury concert than any of the others as it is stil being discussed in great detail as we head in 2020.

(I would of liked to of heard Barney and Steve on the event too)
