It’s probably fair to say that when the Sex Pistols sang Anarchy in the UK they were not necessarily thinking of Nelson in Lancashire but it was in that small mill town in 1976 where Andrew Nicholson and Philip Husband took up the call to arms and formed The Pathetix. Joined by drummer Terry Sanders, who bought his drumkit for the princely sum of a pint of mild, they ‘performed’ a farcical first gig. Just 10 minutes in, the band no longer able to stand the appalling feedback trash their gear and walk off stage to huge applause, a legend is born and a scene is created.
