GIG 036: When It Rains / The Presence / The Clamheads - Marquee 22/01/90
I sadly can't remember much about this gig at all. It was one that I went to by myself and The Clamheads were shit, but When It Rains and The Presence were both apparently pretty good.

I actually signed up to The Presence's mailing list because a few years later I was involved as a witness in a court case for them where they were trying to take Lol Tolhurst (of The Cure) to court as he had just started a new band also called The Presence (with pretty much the same font and logo too if I recall) and they were contesting the name.

They came to an out of court settlement I believe which also involved them changing their name. Apparently (and I did not know this until today) they changed it to Puressence - which was a massive surprise to me as I love Puressence, have seen them live a number of times, but had never ever made the connection before.

Price: Unknown
