1982 Gig Schedule

In early 1982, it became obious the band had reached a plateau in terms of the gigs it was getting. Without changing managers, it was impossible to know whether this was the bands' limit, or a change would do them good. It turned out that Paddy O'Connell (RIP) who had been managing a band named Candi and Dynamite which broke ujp, took on Kim Newport. The result immediately was bigger gigs with more money, but playing less frequently.
