Looks like a good week. On the Wednesday I still had £223 in the bank. Thursday I saw John Cooper Clarke and Be Bop Deluxe at the New Theatre. Friday Sheik (I don’t remember them) and The Pirates at the Poly. Saturday it was back to the New Theatre to see the rockabilly band Whirlwind supporting Ian Dury & The Blockheads before dashing over in time to see Siouxsie & The Banshees at a college gig, Exeter maybe.
Not sure what happened on Sunday, but on Monday 27th February it was The Flies and Otway & Barrett, probably in the Oranges and Lemons. On Friday March 3rd still had £211 in bank. How did I do that?

With a bottle of Brakspear’s Oxford Gold. A Christmas present from Dawn and Andy.

This was my favourite Oxford pub in the late 70s and I’ve just come across these photos from that era… I recognise many faces but names are harder to recall…
The pictures come from a website celebrating skinhead culture but as you can see many social groups were welcome, even we students were tolerated. I even made an odd appearance as one of Leaf’s guest barmen.
Oxford New Theatre 19 March 1978. Maurice found this on his iPhone, I was there and had no idea it was recorded…
From Wolfgang’s Concert Vault, it will probably require your registration but it’s free.
I’ve posted here previously about Mr Blackadder, SCR butler at The Queen’s College.
The latest edition of the college newsletter has a supplement devoted entirely to old members’ memories of him.
