So down to Poole. By this time as well as Paul and Me, we'd picked up 3 other regular passengers. Jo, who was a big fan of Johnny's and who we'd initially met at Chippenham, and 2 Japanese girls whose names I can't remember anymore. Jo had a history of following the Smiths around and had been to quite a few of the 1984 English dates, so she was a bit of a veteran. The Japanese girls used to turn up at the start of each tour and then disappear afterwards. Those 3 were with us pretty much right through until late 1986. As well as them we were starting to recognise a number of regular fans who would turn up at every venue. By the Scottish tour later in the year there would be a band of regulars, which made the travelling and hanging around waiting much more bearable.
The venue at Poole was down by the sea. I remember hearing the soundcheck sitting in the car park round the back ... although with the combination of being outside and the wind off the sea, it was quite hard to make out what songs they were playing. I think it was here that I first heard them playing bigmouth. Even with the muffled sound it sounded quite different to all the other songs. Going to to many of hte shows, you got to hear the songs grow, which was interesting. Actually our experience was probably the opposite of most poeples, as we got used to the live versions of songs before we heard the recorded version a lot of the time. I remember being destinctly unimpressed with the recorded version of Ask when it came out, having loved the version they were playing live, which was much more jangly and urgent. But that was much later ... Paul had recorded the Gloucester Soundcheck in 1984 from outside the venue ... its not great quality and you can hear cars driving by ... but it would have been impossible here.
The show itself is a blank. Only I recorded this show ... Paul had obviously decided to enjoy a gig for a change. As usual it was recorded using a Sony Professional Walkman with Sony EMC-929LT Mic onto Metal tape.
