Venue notes: Stow Hill Labour Club, Newport, Wales, UKStow Hill is a neighborhood in Newport, South Wales. Martin Bowen Jones writes about the place in Feb 2004: "It's an old social club set up by the Labour Party (as in Tony Blair) for meetings, social gatherings, dances etc. It's still going, and is still used for some gigs." According to this site, Hüsker Dü's 23 Sep 1985 date here was the band's first UK gig outside of London, (which casts further doubt on the accuracy of the purported 26 Jul 1985 Manchester Hacienda date.
