GIG 117: New Model Army / Ed Allyne-Johnson / Power of Dreams – Astoria, 4th May 1993

It’d been a year since I’d last see New Model Army (GIG 101) and, as with that gig, they had Ed Allyne-Johnson as a stand-alone support act for them as well as joining them on stage during their own set with his home built electric violin. In addition they were also joined by Power of Dreams whom I think I had an old 7” single of at the time, and had also supported The Mission three years earlier (GIG 071) so vaguely knew them.

Power of Dreams opened well and put in a good set. Ed Allyne-Johnson was just as good as the previous time I’d seen him and, as always, New Model Army brought the house down with yet another astounding performance – continuing the trend (which has lasted to this day) of being one of the best live bands I’ve seen and never letting me walk away thinking the night was anything less than fantastic!
