New Model Army

New Model Army are an English rock band. They are widely known for their unwavering commitment to their original vision of music and performance and their ethical code. Therefore they are often labelled as a punk band.

Saturday, 22 September 1984, "Dance Box", 21:00 - 22:00

Line up
Justin Sullivan – vocals & guitar, Stuart Murrow – bass, Robert Heaton – drums

Set list
01 Let’s dance
02 Great expectations
03 Vengeance
04 Sex (the black angel)
05 Grandmother’s footsteps

Tracks 01 - 05 were broadcast on radio. Tracks 03 – 05 were released on the bootleg This is for the Fans, not the Militia, taken from this broadcast.

I have the same three tracks as well as a short interview (mp3 @ 192kbps, total time 12'24") from the State of Mind bootleg CD, which appeared later with similar artwork. Get them here:

Other info

12 of us travelled over to Rotterdam in a mini bus. It was a two day indoor music festival (Pandora's Musicbox 22/9/84). The building was similar to the NEC in Birmingham; it had loads of different venues in one big building. The whole experience was brilliant. When NMA came on I don't think the foreign audience knew what was going on, they just stood there and watched us dance through the whole gig. (
