THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPERS GIGS ARCHIVE : 1983-NOW!

Please send photos, reminiscences or corrections to the The WebKeeper ~ if & when I retire (or maybe even before!) I'll try and finish this

What follows is a list of shows that I had kept in a diary at the time; with some notes as to who was in the band when membership was in flux. I seem to recall that in late 1985 the list was expanded and corrected with help from John Bassett our live sound engineer for most of that time who had also kept a no doubt more precise diary. I've also added a few things that sprang to mind while I was typing this up. There is obviously a gaping hole towards the end of 1985 which I'd be happy to fill if anyone could help me! I'll try and add more details and photos when I get the archives in order and have a chance to trawl through later diaries, other band members tour diaries, magazines and clippings in the collection.
