I won Jim Bobs shirt in a competition in select magazine in the early 90s,
its a long sleeve white shirt, with gods not dead...No..He is alive on the front, and He's working in a chip shop in Sheffield on the back, and
unstoppable crew on the sleeve's, and signed by Jim.

We have a few things including a gold disc for 1992 the love album,
a long sleeve tye dye 30 Something t-shirt, plus a few t-shirts from the early tours. I also have tour posters in Greek and Spanish among other languages and a couple of the cycling hats and woolly hats.

Talking of rare T shirts and stuff, how rare was the "Mad as F**K" T shirt from the London Astoria Gig (Friday the 13th of July 1990) I heard that they only printed 101 to coincide with the albumn of the same name?

they printed I think about 120...and sold 101 as it was their 101st gig of that year....i have two...

Got alot of bits and bobs - prob the most interesting is a jamie Wednesday TDK demo tape sent to an Ents officer freind that he passed on to me many years later with I think a note from Jim...t-shirts, condoms, all three of the Anytime anyplace anywhere badges (was also the first perosn to buy all three of the t's in 1990 at Kidderminster Market Tavern according to Joh Beast),

My fave is prob my first USM t-shirt from 89 - black logo. White t-shirt. And the music. Dont need much more than that. My most missed is a couple of flyposters from a Bham burberies gig I had but lost in a house move several years ago...

Honestly Simon,

I'm glad I was not. Chances are great that I would have been crying like a little baby. At least a single tear would have run down my cheek ... :cry:

Terribly sad, I'm glad you didn't jump before a train afterwards!

Fantastic. No, of course I'm being sarcastic.

Nah, we had to drive back from Guildford. Plus we didn't know it was going to be the last gig.

Doesn't the legend say they announced it was their final gig - before and on stage?

(Not sure about this one ... still would love to strike out 1997 on the cal ... nope, Diana is NOT the reason ... Oh my, the depressions come back ... May we talk about anything else ... let's talk about 1987 instead!)

If they did I was far too drunk to notice :)

(And if I remember right, so was Jim)

Thats was a funny show - 10 minutes before they came on there was about 25 people there and some families waiting for the Saw Doctors. Five minutes before and hundreds of people in Carter t-shirts appeared from somewhere. Probably the bar.

It's a wicked shirt i've still got mine but the quality back then was crap! :D I've got the rubbish tour shirt with the pink baby face on the back and thats the same - then they started making huge xxxl size shirts like the AAA tour shirts and the pet shop boys rip off "more hard" shirt - wierd! The ULU gig on 14th feb with EMF/Family Cat was better though.
