Recording information

According to the books ‘Babylon’s Burning’ and "Midge Ure, If I Was...: The Autobiography" The Police were supported by "The Rich Kids" instead of "Neo".

Formed in 1977 by ex-Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock "The Rich Kids" tried to convince Midge Ure to join in the summer of 1977. They were all in the audience of today's gig when they learnt that the support hadn't shown up. They offered their services and had Midge singing for a few songs, but as the gig didn't go well he declined to join as their singer (he joined later, though).

The improvised support act got their money back and a pound each for beer.
