You know, I have no idea what I bought him in return, but I have sent him to Coventry many times since :lol: :lol:
I've got some chloroform and handcuffs, just for you.

My first stranglers gig was Sheffield city hall on the Feline tour 83 but would have been Cleethorpes Winter Gardens 81 MIB tour but it got called off due to the stage size, queued up freezing fog only to be refunded for the cancelled gig.
