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 🙂
