Live: Stanley Abattoir social club, Liverpool

A somewhat bizarre booking for the nascent Quarrymen: they performed two raucous sets for the social club of Liverpool's Stanley Abattoir.

The event was a dance held for the members of the social club, which included employees of the huge slaughter house, meat porters, and their families.

This was a one-off booking for Quarrymen; they never subsequently performed at the social club. It's unlikely they minded too much.
