The Ranch

The wonderful Manchester District Music Archive has seen a some cracking Distractions artefacts from the early days of 1977 added recently by 'FranDaman'.  The first is a set of tickets (nice badge as well) for gigs at The Ranch on Dale Street, often referred to as the home of Manchester punk. 





The Ranch was part of Foo Foo's Palace and for a time The Distractions were almost considered to be the Ranch house band.  The other artefact is a frankly, rather disturbing flyer for a July 1977 gig.  Where to start with this...
