Had a quick look over the weekend and unearthed a few things, although there are a few that will take a bit more research
photos of Deacon Blue, Lone Justice, Long ryders*, Dr and the Medics, Sugue Sigue Sputnik, Robert Cray Band (playing in the canteen as Sputnik wouldnt allow them to play the main stage allegedly) and a good few others that I'll need to sort through.
Also have quite a few ticket stubs. think there may also be a gig flyer or two tucked in an old LP sleeve or two. Pretty sure I've got one advertising the Long Ryders/ The Fall/ The men they couldn't hang.
Will hopefully start scanning this week.
The Smiths gig in early '84 (before my time at uni but key to my decision about what union I would join ) was recorded and broadcast by Radio Clyde, so it might be worth getting in touch with their archives people. River Records
have been releasing some of these gigs on CD and although the Smiths one is probably some distance away, they may have plans for some other QM recorded shows coming out.
Have a word - if you've not done so already - with the picture library at the Herald/evening times. they may well have pics of some of the acts that played there.
No luck so far with my old diaries - they were not where I expected them to be but I'll hopefully track 'em down.
