Hi, just an response to “bands that played the Limit”. It was the night Scotland went out of the World Cup (1982?). a mid week gig by the Really Big Boys, we supported Whammer Jammer, also local. Our line up included Paul McNiff (bass) & John Wilson, previously rhythm section of Coil. Nifta passed some time ago, but Coil still do the occasional gig & I play with another ex-Coil bass player, Mick Philipson, T/A Swandogs.

I recently made the acquaintance of David, who has a long history with the Human League. here’s a facinating insight into his contributions!
David Beevers with the Human League
Circa 1981 – Back row: Derek Saw, John Jasnoch, Paul Sharpe. Front row: Pete Infanti, Neil Carver, Martin Archer.
Hailing from Sheffield, this is the Lincolns. They were together from 1960 to 1966 and were a moderately successful band. They followed the then lucrative Working Men’s Club circuit around the North of England but they also accepted work where it was offered. Dance Halls, Pubs, Clubs. even Seaside venues. Ken still treads the boards!
They were Ian Robinson – Singer. Phil Hayes – Drums, Mick Osbourne – Bass, Roger Close – Lead Guitar, Ken Nightingale – 2nd Guitar / Vocals
