  1. Wow, I didn't know a recording of this particular show even existed.
    Thanks for posting!

  2. It is amazing what does exist out there. I saw on a trade list recently a recording of X Ray Spex live in Glasgow towards the end of 1978. Must have been one of their last shows. Never new it existed and would love to hear it.

  3. I have Glasgow. I'll email you. (Couldn't find an email address but then saw there's one in the paypal link!)

  4. Good to see this is in circulation. I have an old tape of the Ants' set from the same night which is quite common. Claudio

  5. Wow. I was at this gig, I found this searching for the date it happened. You have made an old guy very happy putting this online. Thank you.

    1. Thanks Bill. Glad you were there, glad you found this recording and glad you're happy.

  6. Gosh! I didn't know a recording of this existed!
    I was actually at that gig at the Roundhouse in Camden in 1978.
    They were supported by the original version of Adam and the Ants (not the embarrassing later version).
    I had just turned 15 years old a couple of months 55!
    I wish I could get this recording! Is it possible?

  7. Click on the link and it's yours.

  8. Thanks bat29!

    I'm an old punk now and so not very computer savvy. Which link do I need to click on to get it?
    If I click on the Soundcloud thing I just get the one track (Identity). Is that right?
    Sorry to be so stupid! :)
