Welfare Rights Fest 3.3.1984

From Northern Irish ‘zine Youth Anthem, issue 4, 1984
Nice write up of a fairly typical gig that the left leaning bands were doing around this time.
Interesting to see one time Glasgow gangster Jimmy Boyle, who’s 1977 book A Sense of Freedom is well worth a read (the TV film from 1979 is worth seeing too), is on the bill with stalwarts Billy Bragg and the Redskins, along with Belfast punks The Outcasts.
