Oooooooooooh I saw It Bites at, I think, the Town & Country Club in Kentish Town in 1989 (although it could've been the National Ballroom in Kilburn, or possibly even the Astoria). Jolly good they were too - My Dunnery got out his tapboard (and that's not a euphemism) and a good time was had by all.
Yet now I reflect on it, all those decent mid-sized venues have now disappeared. Where do the kidz of today go to get their kicks, eh?
They were an excellent live rock band that stood out against most of the pop bands of the 80's. They were dogged by comparisons to prog rock and early Genesis stuff and still have a very loyal fan base.
