Still running all the extra dates I had been given by the West End Centre at the start of the year, I was very busy with The Buzz Club in June. A week after Levitation, we held a local band competition, lasting three nights and ending on the Saturday with Liverpool’s Scorpio Rising headlining (‘Just back from supporting The Neds’!). The last of the local bands supported them. We organised judges; Danny and I took a night each, together for the third, and invited a few music industry friends to join the panel. The whole thing took quite a lot of organising, plus, I had recently started full time at Ultimate Records.
The competition was sponsored by a microphone company and the winners got to play a gig in Germany. For those who might be curious, Frayed Edge were the winners!
