THE ARCHIVE: Rare Breed gig advert

Ozzy and Geezer played in Rare Breed. It was a fluid lineup and the various accounts give different time lines for this group. We can’t be sure that this gig featured our heroes – unless of course, you can tell us. However, they did play and as you can see from this advert placed in the Birmingham Mail they had a name for themselves.

Also note Breakthru advertised the following nite. They gigged extensively but are all but forgotten in the Birmingham micro histories of the time. Their reissue lp tell you all you need to know about why they didn’t actually make it but i’d have loved to have seen them groove in a youth club or church hall.
