Here's a couple of examples of Dundee based contests involving bands doing battle with each other.
The first item dates from August 1979 and is for a talent contest being held at the Tech College (Bowling Alley).
This one ended up with around 6 bands battling it out I seem to remember. No idea what the winner got mind you!
The ad was published in a local fanzine.
The other item is dated July 1982 and was for a UK battle, the Dundee heat taking place on 9 October.
I don't know which local bands ended up participating in it or what venue it was, but the eventual winners got cash and a recording deal.
The item was published in the national music press.
