yho13 - ... a day to remember

The thirteenth edition of YHO had on its front cover out a still of dancers out on the floor at Wigan Casino in its heyday.  It was taken from a lovely old This England documentary for Grenada TV directed by Tony Palmer, which has more recently been issued on DVD.  This issue was a special commemorative one put together to accompany a rare live recording of Vic Godard & Subway Sect performing their Northern Soul set at the Music Machine, supporting Siouxsie and the Banshees, in March 1980.  Vic kindly gave permission to make the tape available via the YHO site, and has subsequently started to revisit some of these songs.  It seemed like a good idea to put a small booklet together to go with the download.  The title, of course, is a line from the song Holiday Hymn.
Among those putting in guest appearances are:
Ø  Alan Horne
Ø  Orange Juice
Ø  Johnny Britton
Ø  Dave McCullough
Ø  Vivien Goldman
Ø  Robin Banks
Ø  Rob Green
Ø  Tony Clarke
Ø  Jonny Brown
Ø  Sean McLusky

The legendary live performance itself can be found here ...
