GIG 038: Bogus Gods / Laughterland – Cat & Lantern, 24th January 1990

We knew the guys from Bogus Gods (may have known the Laughterland crew too actually) as we all drank in the same Barnet pubs, had pretty much the same taste in music and well, they were sort of second degree mates (friends but not friends we knew terribly well).

The Cat & Lantern (in East Barnet) was pretty packed and in amongst the swarming sweaty bodies were Justin, Pat, Chris, Lucy, Tracey, Penny, Roger, Trevor, Jenny, Emma, Julie and loads of others.

Both bands were pretty fun but the highlight of the evening had to be Bogus Gods’ thrash cover of the Fraggle Rock Theme Tune which was amazing (and pretty much resulted in a load of us on the floor due to a mosh-pit collapse :p).

Still remember the cover, and ensuing chaos, even now – 32 years later (as I write this)!

Alex (who played guitar for one of the bands) ended up joining Dream City Film Club, who were one of my favourite bands in the mid-late 90’s and achieved a cult following. Neil (who played drums for one of the bands) ended up in a very short lived band with yours truly – that didn’t manage to do any more than rehearsals and was doomed to fail in anycase as I was the singer (and can’t sing)!
