Kissing the Pink Redcar Coatham Bowl 1983?

Kissing the Pink Redcar Coatham Bowl 1983?
kissingthepink I saw quite a few bands at Redcar Coatham Bowl in the late 70s and early 80s, usually on a Sunday night. I’m afraid I have no recollection at all of attending this gig, but I have a ticket stub, so I must have been there! Kissing the Pink were a new wave band on the early 80s, and I would guess that this gig will have been around 1983, when they released the album “Naked”. From wikipedia: “Kissing the Pink are a British new wave, dance and synthpop group from London. Their first single was “Don’t Hide in the Shadows”, made with Martin Hannett. After a series of near-misses, their single “The Last Film” reached the Top 20 of the UK Singles Chart. Their album, Naked, reached No. 54 in the UK Albums Chart.” And the ticket is a nice shade of pink to match the band’s name ๐Ÿ™‚

One response to this post.

  1. I don’t remember them at all – I’ll check them out on YouTube. I steadfastly rejected new wave music at the time, but it’s fun now to go back and watch the videos from that period. Even though it wasn’t my cup of tea, new wave was played a lot on MTV, which I watched in those days like my life depended on it, so I usually recognize the bands when I come across them. ๐Ÿ˜‰
