Opening on Valentines Day 1991, the Cavern Club was aimed at promoting new, underground bands that had up until then, few outlets in the south west. The first band to perform there was Quicksand. Since then they have given many new groups a public stage and allowed many favourites to return. The Hometown Atrocities consisting of Martin Edmunds, Thom Yorke from Radiohead, Shack from Lunatic Calm, Paul Symes of Dead Inside and David who runs the club, promoted many bands both before the Cavern and since. Probably the most famous to appear at the Cavern from the perhaps 10,000 acts in total, is Christ Martin with Coldplay.
