Wayne County: Electric Circus, Manchester

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 6 August 1977

UPSTAIRS IN THE tiny Electric Circus dressing room Wayne County fussily fumbles and fidgets; he's got to look just right. He's wearing a crisp fawn overall number with paint letters patted neatly on – it'd look great baggy, but he's determined to get it right and tight. His curious nose continually wrinkles frustratedly at his inability to get it right, until finally some kind person proffers a safety pin.
