What: Candy Harlots 1987 Sydney Gig Flier
Winning Bid: $5 AUS
Starting Bids: $5 AUS
Sale Date: 23 August 2013

Description:

“CANDY HARLOTS (ex-Kelpies)~ORIGINAL VERY EARLY (AUG.1987) SYDNEY GIG HANDBILL – CANDY HARLOTS (ex-Kelpies)
with TRILOBITES (who may have been headlining…pretty definitely in fact…as this was one of the earliest Harltos gigs)
Official and original Australian handbill for their gig at the Mosman Hotel (where the Kelpies played many of their best gigs)…on 22nd August 1987

____________
This is a great find – and significant – as (the seller correctly noted) it is one of the earliest gigs for the Candy Harlots – dating back to August of 1987. The hand-drawn band logo would remain in use for around another 12 months – before being altered. Hard to comprehend that this is 26 years ago (at one of the 70′s/80′s busiest live venues in Sydney’s north). Kiss Kiss Bang Bang indeed.
