Andrew: I thought it would be a good idea to record all of the bands that played at
The Roxy as most of them were unsigned. Barry Jones and I went to Arista for a
meeting. We were asking for £10,000 to deliver the whole thing.

The ROXY Stranglers flyer March 77 cancelled

EXCERPT FROM THE ROXY OUR STORY    Monday, March 28th, 29th
Stranglers – both nights CANCELLED
Andrew: The Stranglers agreed to play because
they thought it was the last night of The Roxy,
which was the case when we booked them on
March 2nd, but things were moving fast at that
time and although this was essentially the last
night we had to do anything to stall that as we
had committed to the EMI live recording, so
we entered into the new deal on March 22nd.
They wanted to be the last band to play at the
club, but we thought they were too expensive
anyway so we both agreed to cancel.

The Roxy BUZZCOCKS March 77 contract

EXCERPT FROM THE ROXY OUR STORY    Saturday, April 2nd
Buzzcocks/Johnny Moped/Wire/X-Ray Spex/Smak
Last night of recording.
Andrew: We were supposed to re-record Siouxsie but she lost her drummer, Kenny
Morris, so Johnny Moped stepped in to play in their place. At the end of the night,
Eater were packing up and taking their gear up to the van they had outside the
front door. All of a sudden, there was this shower of beer bottles flying at them
and the club. We all ran inside for protection. It turned out these lads I had asked
to leave were waiting for the band. I don’t think they were too happy when Andy
Blade and Dee the drummer chopped up the head of a pig on stage and threw it
in the crowd, splashing blood and brains on their smart jeans.
Mike Thorne, Roxy album producer: On one Saturday night, mood and ghosts played
together. Eater had topped the bill, and I’d enjoyed their set from the floor. They
had used a severed pig’s head, hacking away at it during the set, which had startled
the audience thoroughly, the stage detritus giving the band following them some
pause for thought. These were possibly the last times when an audience could
still be genuinely shocked. At the end of the night one of the punters, in another
interesting altered state, was holding it in front of him in the middle of the floor,
dancing round slowly, a five-yard radius buffer zone moving around with him

Andrew’s Diary: Another panic day, Susan doesn’t have a car any more so getting
drink stock is a big problem. We decided to hire a car for the day as Susan needs
to be at studios in Floral Hall in Covent Garden market, just round the corner
from Roxy, for photo shoot with Miss London magazine. I turn up at club and
meet Barry. We waited for Ralph, a friend of Barry’s who was trying to borrow
some money for us to stock the empty bar, but no luck – no cash. I went to the
bank and managed somehow to get out £90, shot off to the cash and carry with
Barry in Ralph’s car to buy stock. Went on to Holborn Police Station to make
statement about robbery, not interested at all despite good descriptions of robbers. Hmm… makes you wonder if they were part of it all. Threatened to arrest
us if we didn’t calm down; punk prejudice rools ok. Maybe the two pink stripes in
hair and black clothes don’t send the right image. It turned out, many years later,
they were put into my hair by Toni & Guy, who had their first shop in Streatham
where we lived. Just thought I would mention that – didn’t they do well.
