    I was at that gig and actually had my photograph of EC published in the NWWN because their photographer was too much of a short arse to see over the heads of the crowd. Also got to go and have a look around EC tour bus which was a converted old American Greyhound bus (it stank).
    I seem to remember standing having a piss in the bogs and some guy asking me what I thought of the support band, which I replied I thought they were shit, only to find Clive Langer having a piss next to me lol

      I was Elvis Costello’s bus driver and remember Colwyn Bay Pier gig . Was the bus parked outside the Pier? The bus was an american Silver Eagle not a Greyhound . Did you meet Elvis or the Attractions or perhaps you spoke to me as I must have been there to show you round? Great gig by the way and love to Wales.

    this gig ranks as one of the best i ever saw anywhere.clive Langer played a really great set and Costello banged out a seamingly endless procession of songa at breakneck speed. Didn’t know there was a bootleg will try and get a copy.Can’t believe it was so long ago christ i’m gettin old

    I was there, a lanky 20 year old art student (of course!) I drove a bunch of us from Wrexham in my mum’s battered old Vauxhall Viva. All I can remember is the place was packed and we were late and trying to get anywhere near the front impossible but it was a great gig, Elvis was on fire!
