Also we have an article by Pete Clemons from the Coventry Telegraph - about the Lanch Arts festivals - although he doesn't say much about the 1976 / 77 festivals - he did mention the Sex Pistols! Here's the link on one of our newer sites http://coventrygigs.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/the-lanch-lanchester-polytechnic-gigs.html Trev
Thanks for your interesting comment Jennifer, That would be great if you had the 1977 programme. If you find you can send it via hobozine@googlemail.com There are some other post about the Lanch on here - about Ted Little who organised it originally and some of the co-oganisers have left comments here http://coventrymusichistory.typepad.com/blog/2009/02/ted-little-and-the-lanchester-arts-festival-coventry.html Also I interviewed Colin Richardson for this blog - he was the Bron music agent through which some of the big names were booked. The interview is over several posts on here and concerns his wider career as Colosseum manager etc but he talks about giving Ivor Cutler a life to the Lanch gig. Shame the funding was curtailed - they were always great events and influenced not only students but a lot of budding Cov musicians. A lot of us appreciated the work that went into organising them. It was at the Sex pistols Lanch gig that a Cov friend of ours Scon became a roadie with them and later Clash - better known as Roadent. He went on to appear in a German TV play and went out with Barbara Grogan of the Passions - who wrote the 80's hit I'm in love with a German Film Star. As a result he introduced the Specials to the infamous Bernie Rhodes at Mr Georges and as Mr Rhodes is the subject of Gangsters inadvertently influenced another song! The story is on here http://coventrymusichistory.typepad.com/blog/2007/06/a-clash-with-scon-roadent-of-the-sex-pistols-subject-of-the-passions-song.html Thanks again Jennifer - Trev Teasdel
