Tramps, Princess Street

Tramps, Princess Street. (c) dubwise-er at Manchester District Music Archive.

Tramps club on Princess Street, next to the Cyprus Tavern as the flier shows, hosted the Frantic Elevators in November '82.  Seeing as the Frantic Elevators were Mick Hucknall's original band, it would be rude to say the venue was aptly named.  Sounds like Tramps was suitably scruffy though: "it made the Cyprus look like a veritable palace [1]."  (Interestingly, there is mention of Tramps on a flier in the closed Rowntrees venue on Brown Street as shown in this entry for Shorts Ltd.).

  1. Think Tramps Club was on Cross St and was previously known as 'Top Of The Town'.
