14th November 1978: Odeon, Canterbury
With the Rezillos and the Undertones.
Thanks to Mike S for the
ticket scan - and DMXI
for the flyer
Supporting the Rezillos and the Undertones on their joint
tour. A tour which was cut short when the Rezillos had a
bust up after this gig (although the three bands played one
more night at Brunel University on 15th November)
Maddy remembers this gig: I have just found my UKC
appointments diary from 1978 and have written "The Rezillos
8pm Odeon" on Tue 14 November, so I imagine they must have
been top of the bill, although I don't remember it that way.
Apart from the striking presence of Ian Curtis my other main
memory of the evening is that Feargal Sharkey (of the
Undertones) didn't take his coat off!
I'm afraid I can't remember which songs Joy Division
performed, it's mainly Ian's voice and his strange, mesmeric
dancing that I recall. It was the first gig I'd been to at
Uni and was very different to anything I'd experienced
