Here's an absolutely rare old poster from November 1982 ... Surprised ... so at least we know, the gig was adverstised and most likely took place ...

Price is also very acceptable...

Great find. From Eden, the support act, was the legendary pre-grebo band which split to form The Wonder Stuff and PWEI, and featured both Clint Mansell and Miles Hunt, hence the ebay strap line.

To make up for my earlier faux pas, I had a quick look around the Net to find some extra info on the ranting Bradford poet Little Brother, who many HLers will have seen perform at benefit gigs over the years. I found a couple of great blog posts from his contemporary "punk poet" Attila The Stockbroker :
http://standupandspit.wordpress.com/2014/03/26/little-brother/
http://standupandspit.wordpress.com/2014/07/02/little-brother-is-watching-you/ which is from the NME in '82, appropriately and this photo is of the great man from an event in Bradford last year
Thought this might come in handy when you're updating the wiki, @Being Razz

Will definitely be him. And I would imagine that Sally Shmidt on backing vocals is Sally Timms (kind of backwards). And Kenny Giles on production, recorded in his Bridlington studios - virtually a Merciful Release !
Going back to the poster, I would imagine that this guy Clive Whittaker (great rock'n'roll name !) http://www.moseleyb13.com/2014/10/28/the-man-who-booked-the-smiths/ was responsible for the artwork.
He promoted other bands at the Bournbrook Hotel in Selly Oak, and as it says here also at the Fighting Cocks over in nearby Moseley (another suburb of South Birmingham) where TSOM played on the Anaconda tour the following Jan (83) as he mentions in the interview. It was thanks to guys like this that bands like TSOM could get gigs outside their home town and have the hope of putting on a tour independently, playing to small numbers in what were basically function rooms above pubs (like these two venues) more used to retirement parties and the like. They did it for the love of the music, did their own tickets and flyers, and in some cases let bands sleep on their floor after gigs. We are not worthy!

Great info! ... We are not worthy! We are not worthy! ... I've set a link to that site in the SistersWiki page about the Fighting Cocks gig.
http://sisterswiki.org/Fri,_21-Jan-1983

And the release you mentioned before will is also a good addition to the - rather empty Selly Oak page,
especially since an audio of a Little Brother performance is available there... oh my, what a storyteller ... Laughing ...

OK, I completely misunderstood the From Eden part (I should have read the things people wrote, not just look at the words).
Will add these references later. Errors are corrected, however, and the Little Brother part is ok, I think: http://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_25-Nov-1982

Btw, the bids for the poster have meanwhile risen the price remarkably ...

Wiki is looking great ! We are not worthy! It's fantastic to see more and more of the early dates getting more facts (and anecdotes) about them discovered and documented, even at a distance of more than thirty years. Keep up the good work - everyone really appreciates all of your efforts. Very Happy

The Wiki is looking great, indeed! Well Dome, Being645 We are not worthy!

Re the poster, I think the price will rise again as the most likely buyer(s), if he/they don't have it already, haven't even entered the bidding Wink

and there is also a reference to a tour supporting TSOM on a website related to the Wonder Stuff here :

Hi, about posters....I've been hunting high and low for a 2014 tour poster. More specifically the poster with the Brussels date.
Now, I've come to the conclusion it doesn't exist and would settle
for the general tour poster with the european dates. But I can't find thatr one either...

Any ideas?

Thanks, Ben.

Thanks, Ben.

None with a Brussels date has ever appeared in online auctions. Neither any general tour poster. Most likely, the latter existed only in data.
I guess there have been some posters at the venue (Ancienne Belgique). In Belfast, they had quite a few of them and gave them away to everybody who took the effort to ask.

So perhaps, if you ask at the venue? Just in case they're not already binned ... Wink ...

Found this the other day (I'd forgotten I still had it) and posted it on my TSOM blog but I suppose there may be some who are interested in old posters and didn't see it there.

Apart from the billed appearance of the very moribund TSOM, very low down the bill for a band riding so high in the indie charts (and certainly deserving of higher billing than Under Two Flags), it seems strange that by the end of 83 Spear were being advertised as aka ToH, as the Spear album had come out in March and sold well (and being on heavy rotation down the Phono for example). Just sayin' It wasn't me...

The correct date is 22.12.1982 ,not 1983 Rolling Eyes
To be announced = The Cocteau Twins
