New Musical Express : 13 Oktober 1984
With an obstreporous fire officer putting paid to any prospects of a
full SPK set, the evening seemed to be turning into a complete disaster.
The uninspiring Shoot Dispute peddled drivel pop but the night was restored
by the delivery of a brilliant set by Manchester's shamefully ignored Big
Flame. SPK hit the stage, pissed about with a face mask and some welding
gear, then departed.
£3.50 for seven minutes? Whether you regard SPK as junking funkers or funking junk, it's bloody good work if you can get it!
