Summary Analysis One day, Mattie closes the shop early and says that she is going to take Taylor, Esperanza, and Estevan somewhere. Taylor phones Edna to ask her to watch the kids a bit longer.
Sometimes, there would be a knock on the door and I would half open it to see who had come to say hello. That particular Saturday evening it was all going well. Every time I cued up a Terrible night out, when I looked across the crowded club, the smoke machine was blasting out, the audience was a haze of joy, whoops and whistles.
Then I turned away, started looking through my record box, taking my time, enjoying the moment, relaxed, unaware. I turned the music off. Glass was smashing, more doormen arrived, there was a whirl of shouting and scurrying and flailing, and then the battlers made their way through the crowd and disappeared down towards the fire exit near the bar.
Was there some sort of training manual for how DJs should deal with guys hitting each other Terrible night out pool cues and baseball bats on nightclub dancefloors?
Listened to a few beats of my heart. And put on the next record. I only saw one gun in the club. I was DJing when I heard a heavy knocking on the door. Usually I looked through the security spyhole to see who was on the other side wanting to gain entry, but this time I just swung the top part of the door open.
I was confronted with a guy holding a gun at his side pointing at me. He was just three feet from me, young, black. My attention was drawn and fixed to the handgun he was holding close to his chest, the frame half hidden by the coat he was wearing, the barrel aimed directly towards me.
My eyes zoomed in so quickly towards the barrel, it seemed to expand, to fill my whole field of vision, like a movie close-up.
I slammed the door closed, my heart immediately trying to leap out of my chest. I just stood, back to the door. Just thinking and blinking and wondering and gulping. I had no means of calling security or management. I assumed he moved off as soon as I had clattered the door shut on him, but I had no way of knowing for sure.
At the end of the Stone Roses were barely talked about. Paul Cons and I were involved campaigning against Clause 28 of the Local Government Actwhich set limits on the ability of schools to talk openly — let alone positively — about homosexuality, thus, in practical terms, demonising young gay people and sabotaging the ability of schools to give pastoral care and support to their students.
I wanted to ask Gareth if we could use the International Two for the anti-Clause 28 concert, and also I was hoping the Stone Roses would join the bill.
I knew James supported progressive causes; they had performed on Albert Square at the protest against Reagan bombing Libya. The Stone Roses were less of a student-friendly band and with no track record of performing at benefit gigs — but I knew the event would have more impact if I could involve someone unexpected.
They accepted without hesitation. I spent far too much time going back and forth between the two dressing rooms. They hung on and hung on, Gareth making excuses for why they were running late, doing everything he could to delay their set.
Meanwhile, James — Tim in particular — were annoyed and wound up by what they considered to be unprofessional behaviour. Eventually, the Roses took to the stage, around an hour later than had been agreed. Ian Brown still considers the benefit gig at International Two one of their greatest shows.
The two brothers attended the gig although, true to form, they went separately.The book has a worn or chipped out piece out of top edge - see scan. This chip continues into the ffep & title page.

A Terrible Night Out. about, but it just was not working out that way.
Codes of conduct at the rave seemed nonexistent. People seemed to go crazy as if somehow the fluorescent lights and loud music triggered something deep within their cores.
Without any rules to follow, the crowds were encouraged to participate in whatever they found pleasing.
