GIG 099: Redd Kross – Camden Palace, 14th April 1992

We ended up at the Feet First club at Camden Palace as they were having an "Album Preview Launch" for The Cure's "Wish" album - their first album since the stunning "Disintegration" back in 1989. Camden Palace was a favourite of mine for many years, as every Tuesday they'd have a massive alternate/indie club night … Continue reading GIG 099: Redd Kross – Camden Palace, 14th April 1992

GIG 098: Witching Hour / Venus Fly Trap – The Scream Club, 8th March 1992

From the metal of Zodiac to 'very much a goth band' with The Witching Hour for my next gig of 1992. Now this one was held somewhere called "The Scream Club" which I can remember absolutely nothing about (the club that is). I suspect it was actually the backroom of a pub similar to The … Continue reading GIG 098: Witching Hour / Venus Fly Trap – The Scream Club, 8th March 1992

GIG 097: Zodiac Mindwarp & The Love Reaction / Terrorvision / Doctor Rain – Town & Country Club, 15th February 1992

Zodiac Mindwarp's "Tattooed Beat Messiah" was an album I listened to quite a bit when it released back in 1988, and on-and-off for a few years afterwards. It's actually an album I rebrought myself about 15 years ago and, whilst I don't listen to them very often any more, it does get the occasional airplay … Continue reading GIG 097: Zodiac Mindwarp & The Love Reaction / Terrorvision / Doctor Rain – Town & Country Club, 15th February 1992

GIG 095 : ? – The Dandy Lion 03/02/92 + GIG 096: Rib – The Dandy Lion 10/02/92

Typical Monday 'students' night at The Dandy Lion on Barnet High Street. I haven't got a clue who the band on the 3rd February was (so they must have made an impression!) and Rib on the 10th were pretty poor but atleast got a namecheck in my diary! I do know that we had great … Continue reading GIG 095 : ? – The Dandy Lion 03/02/92 + GIG 096: Rib – The Dandy Lion 10/02/92

GIG 094: New Model Army / Joolz / Sunshot – Brixton Academy, 19th December 1991

After seeing New Model Army for the first time in the open air supporting The Mission during the summer (GIG 087) this was my first chance to catch them headlining their own show. The show had an absolutely fantastic line-up too - with Joolz and Sunshot making it a brilliant evening. NMA themselves were fantastic … Continue reading GIG 094: New Model Army / Joolz / Sunshot – Brixton Academy, 19th December 1991

GIG 093: The Levellers / Sand Kings / ? – The Town & Country Club, 27th October 1991

This was the first time (of many) that I saw The Levellers live. Their "A Weapon Called The World" album had been released in 1990 and I'd also picked up a host of their early EPs on 12" over the previous few months after being introduced to them by Dawn. Now, if you've never seen … Continue reading GIG 093: The Levellers / Sand Kings / ? – The Town & Country Club, 27th October 1991

GIG 092: All About Eve / Levitation – The Town & Country Club, 15th September 1991

You can see the write-up of this gig with 091 as I covered everything in that. This is just an excuse to post up another All About Eve track and so I can post the scan of the concert ticket - and also to keep my gig numbers in order ;p https://youtu.be/w5BuqDnqAeI All About Eve … Continue reading GIG 092: All About Eve / Levitation – The Town & Country Club, 15th September 1991
