Amazingly this seems to be my first gig at The Underworld, the Camden music venue underneath The World’s End Pub. I really thought it would have appeared a lot earlier than at GIG 153, but apparently not.
It was a Friday night and I was in Camden to see another of the bands that I was listening to loads of at the time – German industrial/metal band Die Krupps. Their Final Option album, released in 1993, was a regular in my CD player and I particularly liked Fatherland as the standout track. So I was certainly keen to see them live.
Supporting them were PIG, whom I’d seen and enjoyed the previously October (GIG 135) supporting Judda at The Marquee. PIG were once again really good, and I think I came away with their long sleeved shirt from the merchandise stand.
Die Krupps did not disappoint either. They put on a fantastic high energy performance that I really enjoyed. They had plenty of back catalogue (as they’d been around since 1980) as well as a host of great tracks from their latest album to keep us sweaty dancing away.
Being a Friday, and given that the Underworld is literally around the corner from The Electric Ballroom, it came to no surprise that we finished the night off at the Ballrom’s Full Tilt club with a host of other friends.
