We agreed on a 70:30 split against a €450 guarantee. We took €500 on the door. Their manager insisted that the deal meant that we should get 30% of the €50. And so we got the grand total of €15 for the pleasure of putting on the Virgin Prunes. Have I got a long and selective memory? I do. The gig was pretty surreal but I could never shake off the sour taste in my mouth from being shafted by a bunch of Dublin 4’s. Comments are closed.
