GIG 053: Something Happens / Giant International – The Marquee, 3rd May 1990

We’d seen Irish band Something Happens supporting The Mission and had enjoyed them so when they announced a date at The Marquee Nick, Mike and myself found ourselves in London on a Thursday evening :p

Something Happens very pretty big in Ireland, but didn’t get the attention they deserved in the UK. They went on to play some larger venues (I caught them at the Town & Country Club atleast once after this) and the album “Stuck Together With Gods Glue” (which this date was a preview of I think) was a brilliant album which got a lot of critical acclaim (the NME named one of the singles from the album, Hello Hello Hello Hello Hello Petrol, in their Top 40 singles of the year).

Support came in the form of Giant International, whom we’d seen a number of times and were always good fun. Something Happens were brilliant on the night and it was really nice seeing them in a such a smaller venue (compared to Wembley Arena or the Town & Country Club).
