Orange Juice – The Venue 6.8.1981

sniff-n-the-tears-ev

Once again the photographer Justin Thomas has invited me into his treasure trove of wonderful photographs.

How about these glorious pictures of Edwyn and the boys from 1981? Dag nam it, that guitar! That fringe! That shirt! Actually, looking at the photos – Edwyn is wearing a different shirt in a few of these photos – I’m fairly sure the bulk are from Orange Juice at The Venue in London on 6.8.1981, the others are obviously from a very similar time but unless the band had an outfit change mid-set, I guess they are from a separate gig….

    Hi
    I was at he Venue gig. i would say – yes – the majority are from there. I remember the band wore white shirts with colourful hand-painted wavey designs on them. There is also a tape recording of this gig out there if you can find it.

  2. You are right Mr.K. The ones with check shirt are from The Lyceum in 1980, probably one of the promoter John Curd’s (Straight Music) legendary Sunday night bills. I also have some photos of you Josef, can’t remember if Jo has run them or not yet?
