GIG 121: Incubus Succubus / The Looking Glass – The Moonlight Club, 11th June 1993

The Moonlight Club was a small venue above The Railway pub on West End Lane in West Hampstead. It had a great musical history spanning decades. As the Klooks Kleek venue in the early 60’s it saw The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Wonder playing to packed crowds. In the 70’s it renamed itself The Moonlight Club and hosted tons of punk gigs including The Damned, UK Subs and Adam Ant. U2 played their first gig outside of Ireland there. Joy Division and Nick Cave & The Birthday Party played on a number of occasions, and the list just goes on.

On this warm Friday night in June ’93 it was hosting Incubus Succubus with The Looking Glass in support. After seeing Incubus Succubus for the first time back in March I’d started to get to know Candia (singer) and Tony (guitar) a little as Tony had been in a band called The Screaming Dead with a friend of mine in the 80’s. They were also becoming more popular on the pagan, as well as the goth, scene and I also was fairly active in the London pagan scene at the time.

We had quite a crowd with us so it was an incredibly social evening in addition to the music and a dozen or so of us headed down to ‘Full Tilt’ goth/rock club at The Electric Ballroom after the concert to finish off the night and see in Saturday.
