1. The Beat at Bristol, Reading, Cardiff and Swansea would be 4, but i'll put them down as 1.
2. Too Rude, aftershow party in Newport, after The Specials (who were a major let down).
3. Any number of Johnny Trashed gigs
4. Several TheGuyThatGetsTheGirl gigs, in particular at Alfreds, Pontypridd.
5. The Stranglers in Manchester or New York, for different reasons.
