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 with a band on stage at around midnight. The bands could be a bit hit or miss – from established acts playing a lowkey secret warm-up gig, to acts which were getting a lot of buzz in the music papers as the ‘next breakthrough act’ – which some were but many others ended up not being.
On this evening it was the turn of a Californian band called Redd Kross – who I thought were bloody awful.
A whole bunch of us went along to this (because of The Cure preview) so shout outs to Martin, Michelle, Emily and Kim amongst others!
