1982 ??? Zounds
Steve Lake, in Zounds Demystified [04] mentions gigs at Doncaster, Aberdeen, Dundee, Huddersfield - these would fit here. A similar tour to that of April 1981. (?) Maybe Scunthorpe as well ?


1982 Jan 23 3rd single True Love / Dancing released on Rough Trade.




1982 Jan 24 Stevenage Bowes Lyon Hotel
Zounds
Null & Void
Dead Loss
Special Duties
The Eratics

"Null and Void played to a rather empty hall, The Eratics songs collapsed half the way through, Special Duties played fast raw punk. Local band Dead Loss played one song before Zounds came on. Zounds played a really good set and managed to get everyone dancing."
This is how local fanzine Subversive Society described the gig.[100]

The Ex advertised to play but apparently didn't.
Svätsox became De Kift - the second best Dutch band after Gruppo Sportivo.


1982 Feb 22 Bruxelles Not Me and Biafra recorded near Bruxelles for Not So Brave Records.
Originally intended as a split with The Mob and to raise funds to fight conscription in Belgium. Neither happened.[20] However, possibly as a direct result, conscription was suspended in Belgium at the end of 1992.
These tracks were released, with two live tracks from Leiden, later in the year on the La Vache Qui Rit EP.
