Three years earlier, at their peak, I had seen the Inspirals perform to crowds of thousands in their home town of Manchester. Now they were playing for a few hundred die-hard fans, in a venue where the stage wasn’t big enough for the entire band. Clint Boon and his Hammond organ were on a separate smaller section of stage. Between him and the band was a walkway that led to the toilets. You had to walk through the band to go to the toilet. It seemed slightly disrespectful – but a man’s gotta go, when a man’s gotta go!
