I saw The Sid Presley Experience three or four times in 1984 to 1985 the most memorable was the first time at The Marquee (when it was in Wardour Street). The band were young, the drummer was probably only about 14. The Marquee was a sweatbox, horrid and dark and damp - the walls were sopping wet and the floor was sticky. During the encore - which I think was Public Enemy Number One again because they'd run out of songs - the drummer passed out... I think they revived him and carried on.

Great gig, The Sid Presley Experience split and half of them went onto form The Godfathers who were the not the same (despite I think trying to be) and by then I'd moved on.

This blog post has collected together pretty much the complete works of The SPE including both singles, radio sessions and some live stuff.
