Topping tonight’s bill: Geno Washington, The Dave Kelly Band and Port Stanley Amateur Dramatic Society. The latter was a provocative comedy duo (banned from at least one venue for throwing meat around) that included the bloke who would later play Minty in EastEnders.

Arts in Danger was a CAST New Variety initiative. This show does not occur in press adverts listing Arts in Danger Week events, but seems nevertheless to be in support of it. LKJ does not appear on the flyer, but is named (instead of Lioness Chant) in Time Out‘s listings.
Topping this bill were Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry & The Upsetters and Steve Marshall’s World Service. The latter were a ‘rock, funk, jazz, soul and blues’ band who occasionally backed Perry on his forays into non-reggae territory. Marshall was the lead guitarist.
